Tedeschi Trucks Band Performs Neil Young Cover & Welcomes Hard Working Americans In Oakland


Last year’s Tedeschi Trucks Band shows at the Fox Theater in Oakland were so good, the band decided to put out a live video/audio release recorded at the venue. On Friday night, the TTB kicked off this year’s run of shows at the Bay Area theater and once again pulled out all the stops.

Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks led their powerhouse band through a mammoth 15-song set and then brought out openers Hard Working Americans for a collaborative encore. The TTB began the festivities with originals “Do I Look Worried” and “Don’t Know What It Means” ahead of the set’s first cover, Derek & The Dominos’ “Anyday.” Soon thereafter came a huge surprise, Susan led the group through one of their first versions of “Alabama” by Neil Young. Tedeschi handled lead vocals on a song off Harvest Neil only played once between 1973 and 2015, which the TTB debuted two nights prior.

Derek Trucks was showcased soon thereafter on “Midnight In Harlem.” Up next was one of the evening’s two Bob Dylan covers, “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.” The TTB’s set also featured relatively new original “Shame” and more including a tribute to Bay Area icon Santana in the form of “Soul Sacrifice.” For the encore, Dave Schools, Duane Trucks, Todd Snider, Jesse Aycock and the rest of Hard Working Americans loaded the stage for a rendition of Dylan’s “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.” The Tedeschi Trucks Band returns to the Fox on Saturday.
