THE LEE BOYS
9 p.m., Revolution, $10.

The Lee Boys are one of America's finest African-American sacred steel ensembles. This family group — Alvin Lee (guitar), Derrick Lee and Keith Lee (vocals), along with their three nephews, Roosevelt Collier (pedal steel guitar), Alvin Cordy Jr. (seven-string bass) and Earl Walker (drums) — began making music at the ages of 7 and 8 in the House of God church they attended in Perrine, Fla. They underwent a rigorous course of training in a variety of musical instruments, including lap and pedal steel guitars. Inspired by master sacred steel guitarists, the band draws from elements of rock, blues and country music, and applies liberal doses of contemporary R&B, hip-hop and funk to create its own flavor. Praise and worship fans and jam-band adherents alike should flock to Revolution Friday night to catch this rare show. Arkansas Times 2007 Musicians Showcase winner Cooper's Orbit opens.
