July 17: The Wheels of Soul Tour with The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Blackberry Smoke, and Shovels and Rope. What can you say about the Tedeschi Trucks band that hasn't already been said? Solid, driven, super-talented true band members. Evry time I see Derek he is either so good, it makes forget the last time I saw him play, or he truly gets better with each concert. Maybe it's both? Susan's mighty vocal lead and her own soulful, gritty, rocking guitar work is surely the anchor. Each member show their talent alone, and as part of the ensemble. It is a true aural pleasure to see these guys & gals live. Unfortunately I missed the opener, Shovels and Rope, but Blackberry Smoke put on a great set. Seeming maybe a tad out of place with TTB, they were still able to grab the audience and make fans out of hem, if they weren't already. Lots of energy and raw talent from these guys.
