iClips and Tedeschi Trucks Band have joined forces to offer fans across the globe the band’s first ever live broadcast on November 18, 2011. The 11-member ensemble will perform at the Fillmore auditorium in Denver, a city that has shown great support for both Tedeschi and Trucks over the years. iClips.com will offer the concert live and for a limited time the following week.
A dramatic leap forward for two of the music world’s most dynamic performers, singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitarist Derek Trucks introduced Tedeschi Trucks Band to rave reviews earlier this spring in advance of their first full CD release together. In June, Tedeschi Trucks Band debuted big with Revelator (Sony MASTERWORKS), breaking into the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #12, bringing both artists to their highest first week sales and charting of their careers.
Praised as a 4 Star "masterpiece" by Rolling Stone and simply "Outstanding" by USA Today, Revelator is filled with smoky, blues-dipped rockers and heart-stilling ballads that show off, respectively, the gutsier and softer side of Tedeschi’s vocal ability, plus a series of emotive, story-telling solos shaped by Trucks’s uncanny agility on slide-guitar. Tedeschi Trucks Band celebrated the release of Revelator with a soulful and anthemic performance of the album’s first single, “Learn How To Love” on both The Tonight Show and Conan. The recently released third single from the album "Come See About Me" is another demonstration of the prolific musical ability of Tedeschi and Trucks and quickly gaining momentum.
Recognized for their outstanding live performances, Tedeschi Trucks Band's concert in Denver comes after a year of headlining shows in the U.S., Australia and Europe this year. In recent concert reviews, the Charleston City Paper described them as “staggering, uplifting, and damn near soul-saving,” while the Boston Globe declared the “show a triumph as band hits stride.” The all-star lineup features brothers Oteil Burbridge (noted for his years as bassist with the Allman Brothers Band) and Kofi Burbridge (longtime keyboardist/flutist with The Derek Trucks Band), harmony singers Mike Mattison (vocalist with Derek Trucks Band) and Mark Rivers, with drummers J. J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell, trumpeter Maurice Brown, tenor saxophonist Kebbi Williams and trombonist Saunders Sermons.
