About Roosevelt Collier & JUke
Soft spoken by nature, Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the pedal steel guitar. Brought up in Perrine, FL, Collier built his “sacred steel” guitar prowess alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances. On his own, Collier’s become a sought-after talent both on record and on stage, performing alongside musical luminaries of rock, blues and pop, including The Allman Brothers, Buddy Guy, Umphrey's McGee, Los Lobos, Robert Randolph, The String Cheese Incident, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, among countless others. Always seated front and center, "The Dr.", as he is affectionally known, leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work on the pedal steel.
Opening the night is JUke, a four-piece “post-blues” hybrid with a high motor and bottomless soul. Their shows are spearheaded by front man and harmonica-whiz Eric Garcia, who revs up the band to fire on all cylinders. JUke has both backed and opened for G. Love and Zach Deputy, opened for Gary Clark Jr. and wowed folks at festivals like Wanee, Hulaween, and many more.
