When country and punk-styled rock band Lucero came to Omaha to show off its new rock 'n' roll record, "Women & Work," band members also sat down for an exclusive acoustic session for Guest List, our live music video series.

Lead singer and songwriter Ben Nichols strapped on his acoustic guitar with a piece of rope and talented Memphis musician Rick Steff unfolded his accordion for three songs from the new album: "I Can't Stand to Leave You," "Who You Waiting On?" and "Juniper."

The album has a rock sound styled after the band's home city: Memphis, Tenn.

"Being from the same town as Booker T & the MGs and Al Green and Jerry Lee Lewis is pretty cool," Nichols told us. "You kinda stack all that stuff up and it's an impressive legacy."

For Guest List, the band played three stripped-down songs at Jake's Cigars & Spirits in Benson. Nichols likes how Lucero's songs sound as big, swinging rock numbers or quiet, acoustic ones.

"You can get really big or strip everything away and get really quiet," he said. "I like having that flexibility."

"I Can't Stand To Leave You," Lucero
