The Tedeschi Trucks Band rolled into Boca Raton’s Mizner Amphitheater last Friday, bringing their brand of blues and soul, to a festive capacity crowd. The 12-piece ensemble consisting of the husband- and-wife team Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, played two sets that drew heavily from their 2022 release, I Am the Moon and included a barn burning cover of Santana’s ‘Soul Sacrifice’.

The musical chemistry between Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi is undeniable, bubbling over with an unparalleled creativity, passion and an innate ability to shake an audience to their core. The husband/wife duo first came together as Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi’s Soul Stew Revival in 2007, before forming what’s now known as the Tedeschi Trucks Band in 2010.
