A finer pairing than the homegrown sacred steel heroes The Lee Boys and the rapidly growing local festival swamp stomp is rarer than rain in Las Vegas.
The Lee Boys (three brothers and three of their nephews) grew up playing at the House Of God Church in Perrine, saw their blend of gospel, R&B and funk get discovered and exported accross the world by such luminaries as Robert Randolph, and now find themselves playing some of most prestigous gigs in the world, including the Kennedy Center and just about every roots festival in North America.
Swamp Stomp grew out of a local jam band query "hey man, why don't we have a festival" and has grown from 100 people in their first year to over 1000 folks last year - and this year promises to double that. Other acts include: Juke, Rachel Goodrich, ArtOfficial and Jahfe'. Admission is just $7 before 7pm and $10 after that. Or you can get $8 presale tickets at www.swampstompmiami.com and not sweat what time you show up.
