The Black Keys, already enjoying a big Grammy night winning three statues before the actual telecast and Best Rock Performance during the televised ceremony, carried over the good times to the Staples Center concert stage Sunday night (Feb. 10) at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The band performed ‘Lonely Boy,’ the song that gave them the Grammy for Best Rock Song, but they had a little help in doing so. New Orleans piano legend Dr. John, whose ‘Locked Down’ album was produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, brought along the Preservation Hall Jazz Band for the performance.

The backing added a little extra flare to the performance as Dr. John, donning a feathered headdress, banged away on the piano while the full horn and drum section of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band could audibly be heard adding something new to the track. Meanwhile, Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney brought their traditional passion and energy to the song.

In addition to Best Rock Song, the Black Keys won earlier in the night for Best Rock Album for ‘El Camino.’ Frontman Dan Auerbach also received the Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for his work on the Black Keys, Dr. John and Hacienda’s ‘Shakedown’ album.
