I went to see the Tedeschi Trucks Band at San Francisco's Warfield this past Sunday. It was a great show by an 11 piece band that included two drummers, a three piece horn section, great backing vocals and two tremendous guitarists. Susan Tedeschi's vocals were soulful and moving. And Derek Trucks is no slouch on the guitar!
I managed to shoot quite a bit of the concert with my Canon G9. Audio quality is great, but the camera has some shake due to the zoom. Nonetheless, for anyone on the fence about going to see them on their current tour, I hope this will convince you this is a heckuva rocking band. Whether you like soul, blues or funk, there's some great music that will get you moving.
There were several excellent songs from the new album Revelator and if you get a chance to see Tedeschi Trucks live, you should definitely do so. It's a fun evening not to be missed, especially for blues guitar fans.
Note that I was contacted by folks associated with the Tedeschi Trucks Band and asked to remove some of the videos. They said it was ok to keep a few videos on YouTube but I guess they were uncomfortable having too much posted live. I can't say I agree with this approach, but what the heck, you gotta respect the artists wishes, right?
Also, astute readers may have noticed that my frequency of posting has slowed down in recent months. I've taken a new job and so I expect posting may stay sporadic. Nonetheless, I'll try to post the occasional concert video, music or gear review when I can. Meanwhile, enjoy the videos from a great concert.
