About Roosevelt Collier
Soft-spoken by nature, south Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the steel guitar. Brought up in the “sacred steel” 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, Roosevelt is a regular “Artist at Large”, logging hair-raising performances with some of music’s most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, to the Funky Meters to the Del McCoury Band. Whether on tour with the Lee Boys, sitting in on the main stage at festivals, hosting an allstar superjam, or performing locally with his own band… when Roosevelt takes the stage, the ear-to-ear grins can’t help but be contagious.
