Roosevelt Collier Trio + Bird Tribe – $10/13
March 22 @ 8:00 pm$10 – $13
Roosevelt Collier Trio Soft-spoken by nature, south Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the sacred steel guitar. Brought up in the tradition of the House of God Church, Roosevelt built his reputation alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances. Seated front and center, “The Dr.” leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work on the pedal steel. At festivals, he is a regular “Artist at Large,” performing alongside many of music’s most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, to the Funky Meters, to Los Lobos to the Del McCoury Band. Whether on tour with the Lee Boys, bouncing from stage to stage at festivals, or hosting an allstar get down in Miami, when Roosevelt takes the stage, the ear-to-ear grins can’t help but be contagious. https://www.facebook.com/RooseveltCollier/
Bird Tribe The Bird Tribe’s unique expansive sound is lyrically poetic with a mixture of heavy groove, Rock, Soul, and an Experimental feel. The band is fueled by each member’s diverse musical upbringing. Matthew Frost –Keys and Vocals- was taught from the age of three by his father, the original keyboardist for Grand Funk Railroad and a member of the Bob Seger Band. Matthew studied classical composition and Jazz piano at the University of Miami, and has a sound engineering degree from Full Sail University. He has performed with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and Butch Trucks. Brian Byrd –Pedal Steel and Lap Steel- started out playing the drums at two years old. He was heavily influenced by the great Sacred Steel guitar players in his Florida church and started playing pedal steel as a teenager. Brian is a self taught, Pedal steel phenom, who radiates Soul, Blues and authenticity. Garrett Dawson –Drummer and Percussionist- has been playing since the age of three. Garrett has extensive knowledge and authentic performing experience with folkloric rhythms and modern world music. He has toured most notably with Butch Trucks and The Freight Train, and Dickey Betts and Great Southern. Garrett’s drumming is featured on over 35 studio recordings. The Bird Tribe’s soulful music is a beautiful journey through the spectrum of sound. They bring an exciting and uplifting energy, and a true love of sharing their art. https://www.facebook.com/officialbirdtribe/
