With a love of all things funky and downright groovy the raconteurs are a truly original and fun band.
Formed in 2004, the group was a loose collective of muso’s who jammed and lived the very music they created.
Funk, Blues, Acid Jazz and Punk are just a few styles that pop up in a raconteurs set. But the overriding feel is Ska. Ska, Ska and more Ska.
Their love for the Jamaican music is so obvious in their song list, which also fits so well with the tropical outdoor lifestyle of FNQ. Think balmy Summer nights with slinky ska as the wonderful backdrop. The band consists of drums, bass, keys, guitar, sax and vocals. All the elements you need to play a vibrant style of music.
Ernest Ranglin, The Ethiopians, The Skatalites are a few artists the raconteurs pay homage to with their style of music. Also in the raconteurs repertoire are a host of original tunes plus some not so obvious hits. 15 years and still going strong the raconteurs are a band for all tastes.
