Swag's Cubes show them as Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band at Jazz Fest in 2010. I can't quite remember if it was basically the Derek Trucks Band with Susan added as Soul Stew Revival was or if it was the real beginnings of the TTB with Oteil, etc. I do remember they did cause pandemonium in there.
    Forgot about the pandemonium. Seating filled early. Aisles were packed. Blues tent police in full mode. It was the big band concept as I recall, 3 horns and 2-3 singers. Only difference was it was more covers with a little Derek's and a little Susan's thrown in. It was a happening.

    I saw it at The Broadside a while back. Enjoyable movie although I'd rather just watch a video of the entire Mad Dogs show that they played. Some of the commentary gets a bit over the top at times and repetitive. Worth seeing though and like the original Mad Dogs Tour, Leon Russell steals the show here one last time as he passed away the following year.

    Yep, that 2010? appearance in the Blues tent as Trucks /Tedeschi or whatever they called themselves was incredible

I would be at Spleaf tonight if in town. Joe and Jason riding high with success of recent album. Hope to see you in the Spring!

    The band is certainly a profitable franchise now, and with that success comes great responsibility to keep that juggernaut rolling. When you’re a sideman, as Derek was in the Allman Bros, you have a lot more flexibility when your main band goes on hiatus. As a bandleader? Not so much. There’s nothing to stop him from doing a mid-show breakout to do some out of the ordinary stuff, but the pressure to keep all of the TTB members engaged is probably immense. What’s the consensus on how the musical arrangements have changed since Kofi Burbridge’s untimely passing?
    I think some band members did leave the stage when they played Afro Blue on Fri night. And yeah, I get it they are a family business and need to tour a lot but I'd like to hear him play with other top notch musicians playing some different types of music. As for Kofi. the arrangements of the older songs sound the same to me but Gabe Dixon is very good and brings a lot to the table including singing a song now and then. They do miss Kofi's personality and flute playing. The person I think they miss most is Tim Lefave. Derek even said that the band really took off when he joined back in 2013. Nothing against Brandon Boone who is with them now and is very good.

    Thank you Jesus. I have felt the same way for some time. I have said it here. No knock on what TTB does, jeepers, they are outstanding. You feel sheepish if you suggest otherwise. Derek is a supremely talented individual. He performs a role in TTB as a bandleader and lead musician. Extraordinary well in both tasks. He is also a husband. He balances that extraordinarily well also. The man is just insanely talented. As stated above however, I would just love to see him break out a bit and explore some new ground.

    Good post jjazznj

    I would have gone both nights but can't take off Fri and Sat. I'd lose too much money. Gotta pay for all of these shows!
    I couldn't pick one night over the other, to be honest. I did like "Smoke Ring Halo" by the Wood Brothers last night I had never heard before. Derek also went into "Les Bres In A Minor" out of "I Want More" that isn't listed. "Looking For Answers" was new to me, too, a lovely moody piece that turns out comes from Susan's "Just Won't Burn" album.

    I thought they cranked the volume up by 10/15% second set, and that made the vocals a little less clear, but that's a minor quibble. The sound mix that they get is just remarkable. I can't understand why other bands can't emulate this.
    Wonderful show!
    Good to see you, too. I didn't notice that but I was dead center and the sound was great there all night.

    Thanks for the post and the "tip". Just listened to "Midnight in Harlem". Very nice. Very nice indeed.

    Well, Derek reduced me to tears in the "Midnight In Harlem" outro solo. It has happened before, I knew it was coming, but, damn if he didn't get me again.

    Two magnificent nights. What a powerhouse of a band.

    Taper Ed Tyre recorded both nights and put them on Archive.org. I don't usually bother with Aud recordings but his are excellent.

    I was happy that they did a couple of Layla numbers. Bell Bottom Blues was a particularly highlight for me, and I was humming that on the way out.

    Teets, you really ought be down here right now for Horror fest. It's somewhat akin to TT Fest, but without the relentless self-promotion
    Hope to see you in April/May.
