Guitarist Derek Trucks played with Erik Clapton and the Allman Brothers before starting his own band, Susan Tedeschi. The twelve-member ensemble has two drummers, two guitars, a wind section and a number of singers.
They do not play traditional blues, but rather rock with an overlap into soul, funky and jazz. It is an explosive mixture that radiates tremendous energy, joy of life and an unprecedented instrumental mastery.
Their concerts also excel in their relentless desire for improvisation. Long dramatic guitar solos, hammonds and sharp breath riffs are reminiscent of the best of the 1960s, including the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Erik Clapton with a taste of funk Mandrill or James Brown.
For the Grammy debut
They received a Grammy (Best Blues Album) for their first album, Revelator, and the Blues Music Awards. They also released the studio albums Signs (2019), High & Mighty EP (2019), Let Me Get By (2016), Made Up Mind (2013) and most recently the double double album Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN ‘) with guitarist Trey Anastasia. It was a live performance of the classic album by the band Derek and the Dominos.
“It will be the biggest concert blues event of the season and a meeting of many fans of this music. Tedeschi Trucks Band is the most common name that visitors to our events want. We tried for several years, it is a huge success, “said Petr Pošvic and Radim Svatoň from the organizing Liver Music agency.
