There wasn't an empty seat to be found last night at The State Theatre for the Tedeschi Trucks Band concert.
For two hours the band played the hell out of songs from their "Revelator" CD along with a mess of covers like George Harrison's "Wah Wah", Stevie Wonder's "Uptight" and John Prine's "Angel From Montgomery."
Man alive what an awesome band. The horns, the drums, the bass, the keys, the back-up vocals...all of it. And then of course there were the leaders of the pack, guitar deity Derek Trucks and guitarist/singer Susan Tedeschi. Holy guacamole. Seriously.
The band released a live album a few months ago called "Everybody's Talkin," and I can assure you, everybody who was there last night is talkin' about what an explosively enthralling performance it was. tedeschitrucksband.com
Here's what my iPhone saw last night:
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
