About Roosevelt Collier:
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 will release 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.
About Asher Fulero Band:
Musical veteran Asher Fulero has been delivering the goods for nearly 20 years in an incredibly wide range of stage and studio projects and is known as a consummate Pianist/Keyboardist of the highest order, a prolific and eclectic Composer/Producer, and a creatively inquisitive musical catalyst who inspires those around him.
Previously known for high-end sideman/session work, big tribute shows, and fringe original projects, Asher finally decided to cross the threshold to frontman status in 2013, creating an ultra-tight 5-piece ensemble based in Portland Oregon that delivers a clear vision and an undeniable top-shelf groove
The instantly satisfying sound blends Funk/Jazz-Fusion, Classic Progressive Rock & Americana with the psychedelic, improvisational bent of the Jam-Band culture all delivered by experienced masters who can play their instruments into the ground.
Led by Fulero’s powerfully impressive keyboard work, the band bobs and weaves through his complex original arrangements as easily as it turns on a dime to rework them into new spaces at a signal from their leader, taking listeners on a familiar-yet-original journey through all the best jam-band territories.
