KEYSTONE When Alvin Lees brother and father passed away in 2000, he decided to take his familys music out of the four walls of the church and into the greater public.As the Lee Boys, Alvin and two brothers and three nephews, are continuing a musical legacy begun in the 1930s.Their sacred steel music has gospel roots, but also, as Lee said, is really bluesy with a lot of funk … some country mixed in there and some jazz … all kind of mixed and twined.They will perform as a four-piece (one brother and three nephews) for both nights of the Keystone Blues Festival and Art show, from 4:30-6 p.m. for free shows on Saturday and Sunday in River Run.Lee said you can listen to their music sitting down, but that its high-energy and high-impact.Its all feel good music, very positive and uplifting, music you can dance to, Lee said.The Lee Boys are currently on tour, hitting up music festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Bonaroo and most recently the High Sierra Music Festival.They will be in Colorado for the week, playing in Vail, Telluride and ending in Keystone.
