Whitaker Center Presents at the Forum
Tedeschi Trucks Band
Friday, November 30 - 8pm
Tickets are $32, $39, & $47
In 2011 Tedeschi Trucks Band (TTB), the 11-piece group led by the husband-wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, debuted with the Grammy® wining album Revelator. TTB has proven themselves as one of the hottest, most uplifting acts on the road today. In just the past few months, they reached pinnacles of accomplishment that most bands spend a career trying to reach.
Trucks himself, along with TTB bandmate Oteil Burbridge, were honored with lifetime Grammys for their membership in The Allman Brothers Band. In March 2012, Tedeschi and Trucks were invited to perform at the White House with Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Buddy Guy. A week later, they appeared at the Apollo Theater, joining Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and a host of guitar heavyweights in an all-star tribute to bluesman Hubert Sumlin. Both Trucks and Tedeschi happily admit that the TTB sound and set lists owe much to the heyday of classic rock, when distinctions of genre were lowered and a blend of rock, soul, blues, and gospel were at a high point.
