Billed as "One Night, Two Incredible Acts", it didn't fail to deliver! Thanks to a very early birthday gift from my music loving friend, Jackie - the one friend that shares my love of good old, gut-wrenching, soulful blues - we were treated to an incredible evening (3 hours) of some of the very finest, starting with an hour with the legend; "The King of the Blues"; Mr. B. B. King, himself.
And, if I can sell just one album for this Grammy Award winning band (for their 2011 debut album - they've released a new album this year, "Tedeschi Trucks Band Live - Everybody's Talkin'") I've done my job here...their portion of the evening was a FULL 2 hour idyllic, musical extravaganza, which echoed so many great traditions - Delta blues and Memphis soul, sixties rock and seventies funk...left us both speechless, at points, during their performance. I think Jackie may have even cried. The TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND is a SOLID 11-piece band, fronted by husband and wife team, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi (Ta-de-skee). Damn near perfect, if I do say so - turn up your sound and watch - then run out and buy (or hit up Amazon, since you're on here anyway)!
