Photo by Tab Winters (November 19, 2018) -- Today, the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband and wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and vocalist/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, is ready to kick-off 2019 with a return to the road and a new album. As the 12-member powerhouse prepares for its highly anticipated fourth studio release, the group’s jam-packed itinerary of concert appearances continues to develop.

With TTB’s fanbase increasing each year, multi-night residencies are now a mainstay of the band's tour schedule. Their opening run of dates in 2019 includes multiple shows in Chicago (4 nights), New Orleans (2 nights), Nashville (3 nights) and Washington, DC (4 nights). The spring dates will also include a return visit to Europe that will conclude with two nights in London.

Unrivaled in their blend of American soul, blues, rock and country, Tedeschi Trucks Band is renowned as one of the premier live bands in the world. Praised by the New York Times as “Soulful rock that wears its roots-music bona fides on its sleeve — performed by some of the genre’s most exceptional musicians,” TTB delivers supreme musicianship and an exceptional ability to explore almost any musical territory.

Fans have come to expect and embrace TTB’s widely varied sets throughout each tour, the band challenging themselves to create unique nightly performances that showcase their deep catalogue. The band is eager to begin including new original material from their forthcoming album into the mix as the winter tour gets underway.

Beyond the road, the band will soon be announcing details of its next album, it’s first studio release in three years. This follows their recent Grammy-nominated live album/film release, Live From the Fox Oakland (2017), and their last studio release, Let Me Get By (2016). The album is slated for release in early 2019.

Hailed as “two of the best roots rock musicians of their generation” (NPR), Tedeschi and Trucks are widely respected by both their heroes and peers. On January 12, 2019 Susan and Derek will perform in Nashville at an All Star tribute to Willie Nelson, who personally requested the couple’s appearance. The celebration will also include performances by Alison Krauss, George Strait, Jack Johnson, John Mellencamp, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow, and Vince Gill.

Want to play different pedal sequences in a flash? These handy boxes provide more tone solutions than you might realize.

There is no right or wrong way to wire a pedalboard. It’s really a matter of personal taste and what our ears find pleasing. Every musician has their own thing, and our pedalboards are certainly an extension of that. For some, reconfiguring the pedalboard is a lifelong process, and adding a new device often means something has got to go, because real estate is crucial!

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
