Sunday morning gospel set by The Lee Boys added to Langerado
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Steel Pulse will have to cancel their performance this Sunday at the Langerado Music Festival. They were unable to obtain their proper work visas and will not be allowed to perform in the country at this time. It is with great regret that we make this announcement so close to the festival date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are happy to announce that in Steel Pulse's place, sacred steel masters The Lee Boys will be performing a Sunday Morning Gospel set. We look forward to seeing 15,000 smiling faces under the crystal blue sunny skies of South Florida this weekend. For more information and tickets, please visit www.langerado.com.
