Rock N Roll with…The Raconteurs,(Full Concert)

The+Raconteurs

A self-described “new band made up of old friends,” the Raconteurs feature the White StripesJack White and power pop maestro Brendan Benson on vocals, keyboards, and guitars, and the Greenhornes‘ drummer Patrick Keeler and bassist Jack Lawrence as the group’s rhythm section. The idea for the band began when Benson and White collaborated on the song “Steady, as She Goes,” which later became the Raconteurs‘ debut single. When the duo drafted Keeler and Lawrence, they became a full-fledged band. Recording together at Benson‘s East Grand Studio whenever they were available from their other projects, the Raconteurs recorded their debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, over the span of a year and released it in spring 2006 to middling reviews but a Top Ten place on Billboard’s album charts. That year, the band also relocated to Nashville and worked on another batch of songs in between touring and dates at festivals such as Lollapalooza. In 2008, they released the single, “Old Enough” b/w ” Top Yourself,” on Third Man as a joint production with Warner Brothers. (allmusic)
