Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, the two musicians actually grew up together, meeting at the age of eight or nine. Leading completely polar childhoods, Auerback became captain of the high school soccer team, while Carney became the typical social outcast. It wasn’t until the encouragement of a mutual friend, that the two began jamming together. While Auerback began learning guitar, Carney took to the drum kit alongside the use of a four-track recorder. While both of them initially enrolled in the local University of Akron, they both dropped out in order to focus on separate careers in music.
With Auerbach making a living by performing in local bars and clubs, he soon realized that in order to branch out of Akron he’d need to record a demo, remembering his childhood friend and uni-buddy Patrick Carney, Auerbach asked Carney for help. Offering both his equipment and basement, Carney originally meant to only help Auerbach and his backing band, however when none of the members arrived Carney decided to jam with Aurebach, and in two thousand and one, the band known as “The Black Keys” Came to be. During an interview, the band revealed that their name actually came from a friend, (a schizophrenic artist named Alfred McMoore) who would leave incoherent voicemails referring to their fathers as “black keys” such “D flat” or “B minor” when he was upset with them.
After sending the demo to a number of record labels, the band finally received an offer from a small indie label, LA based Alive. Considering the label would sign them without having to see them first, the band quickly accepted! The following year, The Black Keys saw their first performance take place in Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom and Tavern, where the two played in front of only eight people! How times have changed indeed, with Black Keys tickets heavily in demand, you best be quick in grabbing your tickets as who knows what the future will bring!
