Listen: Tedeschi Trucks Band 2011-05-18 SLC, UT
Tedeschi Trucks Band put on a great show last night at Kingsbury Hall!
Derek and Susan and the Band tore up the stage for a full 2 hours with some great new and old material. They mixed some Hendrix and Herbie Hancock into the set and the Band really showed their collective prowess with extended jams and some excellent individual solos. Oteil and Kofi Burbridge are both incredible players and Oteil in particular just bubbled with energy the whole time. The horn section, while missing the trombone player, added a great texture to the sound, as did the two vocalists. Derek and Susan shared lead guitar duties with each of them shining brightly. Derek just makes it all look SO EASY, as he fingerpicks and slides his way up and down his beautiful Gibson SG.
