With a new album, label, and international fanbase, the Lee Boys set their sights on South Florida

As proven on Say Yes!, the Lee Boys' music is not fully gospel and not quite secular. Though there's the occasional reference to the Lord, all their songs are inspired by the universal spirit of the House of God church. There's also a slight touch of country in a few tracks, some jazz influences here and there, and lots of extended blues-rock jams.

"We want to go more mainstream but stick to what we do," Alvin says. "Every place we go, the people are receptive with the style of music we're doing. And even if we go into a club setting, we're still singing about God. We want to be the people that change the trends of what's acceptable and what's not. We believe it's in our music, really. And I think it's the music that's touched everyone when they deal with us."

Back at the Perrine House of God church, the Lee Boys are reaching out to their people, connecting the entire room to a higher power. They're clearly thrilled to be back home, playing to the congregation they grew up with. But these are believers, and they already know the power of the music. Soon, the Lee Boys will be shepherding a whole new flock.
