Tedeschi Trucks Band at Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
Tedeschi Trucks Band fills every seat in the house
Derek Trucks doesn't talk much, but he doesn't need to. The 1200 plus fans who filled Sandler Center that Friday night came to hear Trucks, one of the top 100 guitar players in the world, play some Delta blues, gospel, hard jazz, rock and some wicked slide. Backed by the Tedeschi Trucks Band and with his wife and playing partner, Susan Tedeschi, who is a great guitarist and vocalist in her own right, by his side, the group never let up the two hours they were on stage. Tedeschi held the front of the stage most of the night talking and singing then stepping back so Derek could solo on each song. Even though the formula became predictable and no new ground was covered, the crowd ate up every song as if it was being played for the first time.
