Submitted by underwoodschumm on Tue, 05/26/2015 - 6:41 pm

While no longer touring with Tedeschi Trucks Band or the newly retired Allman Brothers Band, Oteil Burbridge is still finding balance between his family life and career. As one of the most recognizable bass players to crisscross the jam band web and beyond, this isn’t as easy as it seems. While he will be hitting the road this summer with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, weekend gigs and festivals are those that allow him to be with his young son and wife the most.

The crowd bulked up late, but none the less, they were there, and it was packed.

In a recent conversation we had, guitarist Leo Nocentelli laid down why music from New Orleans was so distinct.
