Tedeschi Trucks Band

with Amy Helm and the Handsome Strangers

Friday, November 11 at 7:30 pm

Orpheum Theatre

Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, a 12-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi, blessed with a voice that passionately delivers a range of powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads, the group enlists dual drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective. “A deeply skilled groove machine,” (Los Angeles Times) that displays “a peerless brand of musical alchemy as easily cool and consoling as white hot and ascendant.” (Relix) Tedeschi Trucks Band debuted big with its Grammy Award-winning Revelator, 2012’s dynamic live follow up, Everybody’s Talkin’, and 2013’s critically-acclaimed Made Up Mind bolstering the Jacksonville-based group’s growing reputation as the preeminent blues-rock leader. With guitarist Derek Trucks’ departure from The Allman Brothers Band, the band has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances and released their third studio album, Let Me Get By, in January, 2016.
