As Derek Trucks celebrates his 39th birthday today, Tedeschi Trucks Band is thrilled to announce two very special opening guests during the band’s six-night residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Renowned singer-songwriters Steve Earle and JJ Grey will both deliver solo sets during the mid-week appearances of the band’s eighth annual musical bash in the Big Apple; Earle on 10/9 and Grey on 10/10, respectively. The Oct. 9th show will also mark the 30th time the incredibly talented 12-member rock and soul powerhouse, led by husband-wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, take the stage at the iconic venue.
Tickets for the residency have been selling quickly. Limited tickets are available for October 9 and 10. Currently, both Friday and Saturday nights October 5, 6, 12, & 13 are sold out.
One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, Steve Earle is a three-time Grammy Award recipient and has released twenty albums including his 2017 “So You Wannabe an Outlaw.” His songs have been heard in more than 50 films and have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, and Joan Baez. Always musically adventurous, Earle’s equally respected as a folk troubadour, a rockabilly raver, a contemplative bluesman, a honky-tonk rounder, a snarling rocker and even a bluegrass practitioner. www.steveearle.com
As the dynamic frontman of his band, Mofro, JJ Grey is well-known for his rattlesnake rhythm-and-soul. His latest album, Ol’ Glory, features a guest appearance from fellow Jacksonville Florida native Derek Trucks on guitar. Grey also spends time as a member of the Southern Soul Assembly with Marc Broussard, Anders Osborne, and Luther Dickinson. NYC audiences are in for a treat as Grey’s rare solo sets always display his entertaining narratives and rich, eclectic blend of southern-inspired songwriting. www.jjgrey.com
