Roosevelt Collier and Steeln’ Peaches are teaming up to celebrate the music of Jimi Hendrix and the Allman Brothers for one night only at Victory North on Saturday December 9th, 2023!
Roosevelt Collier Bio:
Soft spoken by nature, South Florida-bred ROOSEVELT COLLIER does his hollering on the pedal 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, he is a regular “Artist at Large,” performing alongside many of music’s most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks, Los Lobos , the Del McCoury Band and countless others. In 2017, Roosevelt debuted his new project Bokanté – a “World Music All-Star Band” created by Snarky Puppy founder Michael League and featuring the vocals of Malika Tirolien.
As a bandleader, Roosevelt leads his world famous “get-downs” featuring a mixture of “superstars and church folk”, his own “Jimi Hendrix Experiment”-style all-star trio, and in 2018 has released the long-awaited Roosevelt Collier debut record, featuring an incredible mixture of blues, gospel, rock, and funk all rolled up by producer and bandmate Michael League.
Steeln’ Peaches Bio:
“Music plus Friends equals Family” .. The mantra has brought together generations of freewheeling spirits, and a tradition which has now summoned a group of some of Florida’s most exciting young musicians to pay tribute to the founding fathers of Southern rock
A band that faithfully executes as well as creates new interpretations of the ABB’s all-time classics and deep cuts, STEELN’ PEACHES combines members of Florida music heroes (& festival mainstays) Thomas Wynn & the Believers and The Groove Orient. The six-piece band of brothers came together with a natural chemistry and dedication to the ABB’s legendary discography.
The groundwork for the group’s foundation was laid by former members of The Groove Orient, guitarist and vocalist Chuck Magid, percussionist David Vanegas and drummer Aaron “Bucky” Buckingham. Chuck’s incorporation of barn-burning lap-steel slide guitar gave the group inspiration for its name.
Club gigs and impromptu jams connected Chuck with blues guitar wunderkind Daniel Heitz, and popular demand at their shows encouraged the two to form a project together. They realized their mutual appreciation for all things Allman overhearing each other covering songs from their catalog. Gradually, wheels began to turn.
When they decided to make it legit, Daniel recruited his Thomas Wynn & the Believers bandmate, keyboardist Colin Fei, as an essential interpreter of Gregg Allman’s iconic Hammond explorations. Rounding out the lineup is Chuck Magid Band bassist Glenn Kastrinos (aka GLENNJAMMIN), a musical polymath in the vein of Jacob Collier whose past performances include sets with Classic Albums Live.
These young bucks’ impressive talent and range gives them the capability to tackle the virtuosic material and expansive, sprawling jams, with the energetic and youthful stage presence of a band primed to bring the legacy of their musical forefathers into the 21st century.
