Full Show Audio: Jimmy Herring Among Tedeschi Trucks Band Guests In Atlanta
On Saturday night Tedeschi Trucks Band brought their Wheels Of Soul Tour to Atlanta for a gig at The Fox Theatre. The packaged night features sets from the Southern rock and soul ensemble, as well as ones from the Drive-By Truckers and The Marcus King Band. As they’ve done throughout this run the tour’s host band welcomed a handful of guests during their headlining slot which included a sit-in from Jimmy Herring.
The collaborations got started earlier in the night as the Drive-By Truckers invited out David Hood (father of DBT’s Patterson Hood), Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Kebbi Williams for a take on Eddie Hinton’s “Everybody Needs Love” during their 10-song set. Tedeschi Trucks Band took to the stage next as they got their portion of the night going with “Soul Serenade.” The band would then go on to serve up their usual mix of originals and covers highlighted by extended takes on “Shame,” “Leaving Trunk” and “Midnight In Harlem.”
TTB welcomed out their first guest of the night to help them close out their main set as their longtime friend and current Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring emerged. With the guitar-slinger in tow, the augmented act dug in on an almost twenty-minute must-hear take on “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” a tune familiar to Herring and Trucks who were both members of the Allman Brothers Band. When the band returned for their encore they had some friends with them as Drive-By Trucker’s front men Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley joined them on stage. The ad-hoc collective served a take on “Going Going Gone” from Bob Dylan’s 1975 release Planet Waves as the lone encore.
