Members Of Tedeschi Trucks Band Guest With Ron Holloway Band After Washington D.C. Show
The Tedeschi Trucks Band played their second of three consecutive concerts at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C. on Friday night. After the the concert, the TTB’s horn section as well as vocalist Susan Tedeschi and multi-instrumentalist Kofi Burbridge headed over to The Hamilton to sit-in with the The Ron Holloway Band.
Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi fronted their 12-piece ensemble for an opener-less, 19-song performance at the sold-out Warner. The “An Evening With The Tedeschi Trucks Band” concert featured a number of the group’s show-stealing favorites included “Midnight In Harlem,” “Made Up Mind” and “Do I Look Worried.” As usual, the TTB presented plenty of impressive covers such as Blind Faith’s “Had To Cry Today,” a medley of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery” and the Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree” and Bob Dylan’s “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.” Listen to an audience recording taped by Alex Leary:
Tedeschi, Burbridge and the horns then were the special guests of saxophonist Ron Holloway and his eponymous band at the more intimate Hamilton. Sit-ins included Kofi adding flute and the horn section contributing to the RHB’s version of “God Made Me Funky” as well as Susan belting Led Zeppelin’s “What Is And What Should Never Be” and the Box Tops’ “The Letter” along with RHB vocalist Rachel Ann Morgan.
