Patrick Keeler is an Americanmarker rock music drummer from Cincinnatimarker, who best known for playing in The Greenhornes and The Raconteurs. He plays with a traditional grip.

Recording career

Keeler has played with garage rock band The Greenhornes along with vocalist Craig Fox and Jack Lawrence, since 1996. Besides drums, he also plays clavinet and harmonica. The Greenhornes have released four albums to date, 'The Greenhornes', 'Gun For You', 'Dual Mono', and 'East Grand Blues EP'. Their song 'There Is An End', featuring Holly Golightly, was used in the Jim Jarmusch film 'Broken Flowers', starring Bill Murray.

In 2004, Keeler played drums on the Loretta Lynn album Van Lear Rose in the band that album producer Jack White put together. The band called themselves The Do Whaters, and also featured Lawrence on bass and Dave Feeny on pedal steel guitar. Despite containing three future Raconteurs, The Do Whaters share little in terms of musical styling. The Raconteurs are a band formed with long-time friends Brendan Benson, Jack White of The White Stripes and "Little" Jack Lawrence. They released their debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, in April 2006 and its follow up Consolers of the Lonely in March 2008.

Keeler also played two shows with fellow garage rockers The Dirtbombs in 2004. At one point, Keeler could have been a candidate as the drummer of Wolfmother, but the band's record company asked guitarist/vocalist Andrew Stockdale to hold auditions.

Musical equipment

Keeler plays Ludwig drums and uses Paiste Giant Beat cymbals. He also uses DW stands and pedals.
