Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are proof that one plus one can equal much more than two. Each already had a successful career when they met, he as a guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band and with his group The Derek Trucks Band, and she as a singer-songwriter. Trucks has worked with Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and McCoy Tyner, among others. Tedeschi has been nominated for several Grammys. The couple married in 2001, but it would take ten years for them to put aside their solo careers and form a group together. Today, the eleven-piece Tedeschi Trucks Band
is one of the best live acts around. Trucks is a kind of John Coltrane on slide guitar, endlessly creative. And Tedeschi has the power of blues singers like Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin, who just happen to be her greatest idols. Together with the rest of the band they are a guarantee that the place will go wild.
