Tedesski Trucks

Post by Radley911 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 4:26 pm

I just discovered them somehow. Don't know how they stated off my radar so long. Derek has a more specialized style than anyone else today. Because he uses a slide almost exclusively, he is basically playing a fretless guitar. Took me a minute to believe a women could be a real blues singer (Janis aside). Susan is a tremendous vocalist. 2 good songs to get introduced: "Darlin' be home soon" and "Midnight in Harlem".
They are more an ensemble than a band really. Derrick does NO vocals, they have male vocalists, and a horn section. Like Van does a lot, and Derricks idol BB King (rip)
If you are interested in how intertwined these guys are with others mentioned. Warren plays as a guest commonly, Warren and Derrick and Otiel were in the Allmans together.even saw Susan Tedesski do Love Light with Bobby and some other guys.

Fantastic band and great live - a real treat live actually.

Fantastic reaction vid to Midnight in Harlem. (This guy is one of my favorites to watch on YouTube for reaction vids)

They are my current favorite touring band although Billy Strings is equally bringing the heat !!! I go to see TTB every chance I get 😊
