Dan Auerbach Hacienda

The Fast Five

Nov 2009

Auerbach tours with newly-formed band The Fast Five, which includes members of Texas band Hacienda and Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket. Dante of Hacienda recalls:

The Dan Auerbach and The Fast Five thing was amazing!  You’d have to ask Dan what he was thinking when it came to that tour.  You see, we had no idea that would ever happen.  We had heard the record as it was being made, but I don’t think Dan ever thought Keep it Hid would come out or be a big release.

That tour changed my life for sure.  I was playing more guitar than I ever had, and next thing I knew, I starting feeling like a pro.  I was meeting big time musicians, and I felt I could hold my own.  Not to mention the crowds were great.  I had never experienced walking on to a stage and everybody already dug you.  For so long I was used to walking on stage and the audience has their arms folded yelling “prove it to me!”
