Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Herring & Others Sit-In With Tedeschi Trucks Band In Georgia


Last night Tedeschi Trucks Band along with North Mississippi Allstars and Los Lobos brought the Wheels Of Soul Tour to Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta, Georgia. The TTB headlining set was filled with many special guests, including members of both opening bands as well as Col. Bruce Hampton and Jimmy Herring.

After opening with Eric Clapton’s “Keep On Growing,” Tedeschi Trucks Band moved through “Don’t Know What It Means” > “The Letter,” followed by George Harrison’s “Isn’t It a Pity?” and their “Laugh About It.” At this point in the set, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks brought out NMA guitarist Luther Dickinson as well as Col. Bruce who handled vocals on a cover of the blues classic “Spoonful.” Hampton exited while Dickinson stuck around for takes on “Leaving Trunk” and “Midnight in Harlem.”

It was then Hampton’s Aquarium Rescue Unit band mate Jimmy Herring’s turn, as the Widespread Panic guitarist emerged to sit-in on “I Want More.” The set closer “The Storm” was augmented by Los Lobos members David Hidalgo on guitar and Steve Berlin on saxophone and North Mississippi Allstars’ Cody Dickinson on percussion. The encore opened with “Sticks and Stones” and Luther returned to add guitar to the “With A Little Help From My Friends” finale.
