We are really excited to have The Lee Boys at The Garage, this coming Thursday (April 8th). Anyone who has seen these guys should be prepared for the experience. There will be no sitting down; strictly boogieing down, as their music is infectious.
When The Lee Boys bring their joyous spiritual sound to the stage, audiences instantly recognize that this is not “sitting and listening” music: dancing, shouting out, and having fun are considered essential parts of their tradition. Founder and bandleader Alvin Lee explains “The inspiration and feeling that comes along with our music is the reason that people feel good. It is like the new music on the block and it’s just getting ready to explode!”
As if a feet stomping ensemble like The Lee Boys weren’t enough to get you out of the house and into this lovely spring weather, they are bringing with them, Hill Country Revue. So all you North Mississippi All Stars fans, here’s a special treat for you.
“This is really back to the roots of blues,” says Cody Dickinson. “It’s funky. Really nasty, that’s the best way to describe it. Gritty, messy, stripped-down.”
As part of the North Mississippi Allstars, Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew have three Grammy nominated albums under their belts. They have shared the stage with artists as diverse as Kid Rock, Dave Matthews Band and Mavis Staples, and toured all over the world steadily since 1996, earning a legion of fans.
Well, I really don’t know what else to say. This is one heck of a night of music, and it’s all happening right down the road from you at The Garage at Biltmore this Thursday night.
