The Band's Robbie Robertson Hires Dawes As Backing Act
To support his upcoming album "How to Become Clairvoyant," former member of The Band, Robbie Robertson has enlisted folk rock band Dawes to act as his backing band. Currently, nothing is planned outside of a few television and potential festival appearances. Says Robertson: "They're really good and they're a band -- it's different than just getting a bunch of individual musicians and trying to make them click and blend. The guys are already in the blend, so that's great. They're all at the top of their game. I'm the one that's a little rusty." ( Rolling Stone)
