About Tedeschi Trucks Band
The 12-member strong Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands performing today. Embracing improvisation over convention, and rarely repeating a set list, the genre-defying collective have seemingly endless potential to explore any musical territory – from their own catalog of Grammy-winning originals to Sly & the Family Stone, Miles Davis, George Jones, Joe Cocker or Nina Simone. Derek Trucks’ masterful guitar skills and Susan Tedeschi’s soaring vocals and bluesy guitar shine but don’t overpower the breadth of world class musicianship on stage, a testament to the genuine respect within TTB’s ranks.
The band’s latest concert film/audio release Live From The Fox Oakland, nominated for a 2018 Grammy, makes it clear that Trucks and Tedeschi have no intention of slowing down now. “I haven’t found this band’s ceiling yet,” says Trucks in the film. For Tedeschi Trucks Band, there may not be one.
From uplifting soulful anthems, to bittersweet ballads and driving rock and roll, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a sound and message that taps tradition while also extending the edges of American music with a genre defying collection that is all their own.
John Moreland will open for Tedeschi Trucks Band. John is a singer-songwriter from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today, his earthbound poetry remains potent, but in addition to his world-weary candor, Moreland’s music smolders with gentle wisdom, flashes of wit and joy, and compassion.
