Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, an 11-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''s impassioned, blues-soaked vocals, 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 double album live follow up, Everybody's Talkin', and 2013's dynamic Made Up Mind bolstering the Jacksonville-based group's growing reputation as the preeminent blues-rock leader. With Derek Trucks' departure from The Allman Brothers Band final at the end of 2014, the band has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances with an increasing repertoire of soulful neo-classics including new material the band has been working on for their next album.
