Pop/Rock | Les Racquet


Les Racquet looks like a power trio, and sounds all over the board, but it's actually a comfortable fit among jam bands. The Brooklyn outfit incorporates three-part vocal harmonies, groove centric rhythms, elements of guitar-driven roots-rock, along with virtuosity, to make it coherent. Les Racquet also inherits the jam band aesthetic of connecting with fans by taking its show on the road: last year's Coast to Coast venture was christened "The Foot In The Door Tour" and the music hasn't stopped. Les Racquet's willingness to bust a nut for grassroots support can certainly push it towards the winning end of a crowded genre.

Les Racquet performs on Wednesday, February 12, 8 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9.
