Jack White and his band performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (2/5/2015), finishing off Fallon’s weeklong stint filming in Los Angeles. The group showed off their chops by busting out a hot version of the tune “Black Bat Licorice” from White’s most recent album Lazaretto. Throughout his long run of producing incredible music (29 time Grammy Nominee, including song and album Lazaretto), White has always seemed to work with talented musicians and let their unique personalities come alive on stage.\r\n\r\nWhile some criticize Meg White for seeming to have limited skills on the drums, Jack has always made it clear that her style was exactly what he was looking for when it came to The White Stripes music. White’s appreciation for character and soul certainly shows in the current group that backs him. Featuring an array of instruments like fiddles and mandolins in addition to more traditional rock elements like guitars and keyboards, the band is capable of creating a sound that is unmatchable in today’s music scene. One of the highlights of the band is the drummer, Daru Jones, who has a very unique drum kit setup and a distinct, physically-involved method of playing that adds an extra level of excitement to watching them perform.\r\n
\r\nWe’re also partial to Daru Jones because his favorite hat to wear while playing is Kangol. On The Tonight Show, he sported a Panel Stripe 507 that’s new for Spring/Summer 2015! We haven’t totally unveiled all the new Kangol styles for the season, but you can pick this one up right now on hats.com!\r\n

Check out all the different versions of their 504 and 507 cap shapes!\r\n\r\nThe only disappointing part of the performance was that Jack White, a hat-lover in his own right, had a slick new haircut instead of an interesting hat like he often does. That means Jones is our favorite member of the band until Jack White returns to the hat-wearing realm where he belongs.
