Bio

The strength of Les Racquet's live show is versatility and sensitivity to the room and the vibe and creativity to move music fluidly to keep rooms intrigued and entertained. They know how to improvise and inspire and control the emotion of their audience. Their sound has been likened to Dr. Dog ("on crack") the Fleet Foxes ("...if someone gave them balls.") Frank Zappa and Queen.

Following the release of their second record, Be Water My Friend in early 2012, the band continued the tour they started in October to and from SXSW. Soon after they were approached by National Booking agency and Record Label We are Young Giant. The band co-booked a national tour with WAYG that took them out to the west coast by way of America's Heartland then over through Texas and up through the plains into the midwest and finally pushed them back to the East Coast for august (2012). The band won Home Grown Music Network's "New Artist of the Year 2012". Les Racquet is preparing to release their third album, a 14 song full length entitled 'Whale Hail', which will act as an homage to their North East roots and a pun for their new found love and support for the South. The album was recorded at Elevated Basement Studios in Savannah, GA. The band is actively pursuing a full time booking agency to take over for 2013 and look to support their release with a PR firm as well.

Les Racquet has the drive, talent and focus to keep growing, and have been gathering support all over the country with no plans to let off the gas.
