For the sixth year in a row the Tedeschi Trucks Band, or TTB as their loyal fans prefer to call them, appear in what has fast become their signature musical event. Now with a catalog of five albums and nearly a decade of steady touring in the U.S. and abroad, Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation earned from both audiences and critics as one of the premier live bands in the world. The 12-piece powerhouse, led by the husband-and-wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and guitarist-singer Susan Tedeschi, continues to expand a growing repertoire of original material written both individually and as a band, plus tasty covers deep-seated in American Roots, embracing genres, from rock, jazz, blues, and Americana to gospel, country, soul, and funk. Their latest release, Live From the Fox Oakland, (March, 2017) CD/DVD was recorded in a single night and beautifully captures the group’s incredible power in concert. The double-disc live recording, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues and #6 Rock Albums chart, showcases the band’s ability to move seamlessly from blistering rock and blues to soulful ballads and includes their take on classics from Derek and the Dominos, Leonard Cohen, and even Miles Davis among TTB’s original songs. The film also gives a behind-the-scenes look at the band on the road.
Curated by Tedeschi Trucks Band, other exciting top acts announced on this year’s bill for the Festival are: Phish bassist and multi-instrumentalist Mike Gordon who has just released his new solo album “OGOGO”; Medeski Martin & Wood effortlessly straddling the gap between avant-garde improvisation and accessible groove-based jazz; Galactic the seminal New Orleans funk band that is consistently pushing their artistic boundaries; Hot Tuna featuring the legendary guitar and bass bluesy sounds of former Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady; Foundation Of Funk featuring the legendary backbone of The Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and bassist George Porter, Jr. with special guests Eric Krasno and John Medeski; and The Suffers a ten-piece band from Houston, TX who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast Soul.
With More Great Music, More Great Wine and Craft Beers and More Great Food, the 2018 Sunshine Music Festival featuring the Tedeschi Trucks Band comes only to Florida for two dates, Saturday, January 13 at Vinoy Park, St. Petersburg in the Tampa Bay Area; and Sunday, January 14 at Mizner Park Amphitheater, Boca Raton in South Florida. Tickets are on sale now at www.livenation.com, all TicketMaster outlets or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.
