Lee Boys/Travelin' McCourys Tour


The Lee Boys
The Lee Boys and The Travelin' McCourys, an all star off shoot of the legendary Del McCoury Band, will join together for a half dozen tour dates in the Southeast beginning January 21st at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. On the tour, each band will perform a set before joining together for a nightly jam session sure to rally audiences to their feet! Outstanding local and regional players will also be invited to sit in, in a tradition that has become a trademark of the McCoury Family.

The Lee Boys transcend the boundaries set by musical genres; their music is an energetic blend of R&B, gospel, hip-hop, rock and country driven by the pedal steel guitar. The Travelin' McCourys are purposely reminiscent of the Traveling Wilburys, and is comprised of Ron McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle and Alan Bartram on bass. They will be joined on this tour with three members from Dre’s Rude Awakening: Dre' Anders (vocalist), Shane Theriot (guitar) and Johnny Neel (keyboards). This touring unit blends the best of the Appalachian tradition with the improvisational magic of jazz, folk and blues. The two bands recently performed together at Warren Hayne’s annual "Christmas Jam" in Asheville, NC, and received rave reviews.

this is about a genre bending as it gets. Saw,heard, experienced it at Warren's Xmas jam. They are worth catching a show.

this is going to be on hell of a mind bending experience if you get to go, the X-mas Jam when the Lee Boys and Del McCoury band played together is probably some of the best music I've ever seen

I was at the Warren Haynes Xmas Jam too and when these two shared the stage it truly was an awesome experience. If you're fortunate enough to be able to catch this, DO IT!!!. I'm from Hilton Head and think it's great there's finally a venue there bringing in some names! I was a little too young for the Old Post Office era.
