Los Steel featuring Jay Leach – TICKETS
Wichita native Jay Leach began steel guitar lessons at age eight. At 15, he became a member of the six piece R&B band, The Fabulous Apostles. They toured for several years between Texas and Canada and were inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame. After a move to California, Jay met an up-and-comer by the name of Jay Graydon (Grammy-winning producer and guitarist) who helped Leach learn the ropes of being a professional guitarist. Following many years playing and recording, he landed a job as principle pedal steel guitarist and utility musician for the TV show, American Idol. Jay has released eight albums and three Mel Bay books (on lap steel, pedal steel, and acoustic guitar). He formed Los Steel in 2014. They play original tunes as well as inventive arrangements of classics. It features Jay Leach on various steel guitars, Tim Torrence on guitar, Dave Derge on drums, Steve Billman on bass, and vocalist TaTa Vega.
