*****Roosevelt Collier Trio*****
Soft-spoken by nature, south Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the steel guitar. Seated front and center, the "sacred steel" frontman with the Lee Boys leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work. A regular "Artist at Large" with festivals like Bear Creek, Jam Cruise and the upcoming the Purple Hatters Ball, the sit-in virtuoso has built a reputation for collaborating with some of the industry's most respected artists of all genres, from the Allman Brothers to Umphrey McGee, Del McCoury Band to Dumpstaphunk. His new side-project, the Roosevelt Collier Trio, features Mofro drummer Anthony Cole and Shak Nasti bassist Matt Lapham -- a powerhouse rhythm section, creating a filthy groove for Roosevelt's slide to sing like James Brown and shred like Jimi Hendrix. No matter the context, when this new trio takes the stage, the ear-to-ear grins can’t help but be contagious.

If you haven't heard of Chroma and you live in Jacksonville you've been living under a rock. As a brand Chroma has been live for over 10 years, but it is only the beginning for the powerhouse quartet we see today. These guys hold their roots in melodic song writing and progressive, psychedelic rock while gracefully stepping into the realms of funk, dance, bluegrass, barbershop, and classical music. The new combination of drummer Alex Hayward, bassist Stan Piper, guitarist Paul Miller & keys crusher Ricky Alessi has been creating these memorizing, energetic, unique and playful moments during live shows that is capturing the attention of audiences around the southeast festival and club scene.
