Eric Krasno To Play Bass For Tedeschi Trucks Band This Summer


Tedeschi Trucks Band
Tedeschi Trucks Band has a busy summer ahead that kicks off on June 14th in Albuquerque. Until today it wasn't known who would play bass for the band as former bassist Oteil Burbridge left the group's employ late last year and a permanent has yet to be announced. Today, Derek and Susan have revealed who will play bass for their band and it's a bit of a shock. Outside of five shows in which Tim Lefebvre will handle four-string duties on July 19 - 24, Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno will play bass for the Tedeschi Trucks Band this summer.

Krasno is best known for his electric guitar prowess, but those who have seen him in action on Jam Cruise or as bassist for the Nigel Hall Band know how good he is on what was his first instrument. We're particularly excited about the TTB's co-bills with not only The Black Crowes but with The London Souls - a group who is incredibly tight with Kraz.
