Tedeschi Trucks Band welcomed Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno as well as MMW and Wood Brothers bassist Chris Wood during their set at the Sunshine Music Festival at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Florida on this date in 2018. Kraz joined in on covers from Sleepy John Estes and Rahsaan Roland Kirk, while Wood came out for a Paul McCartney & Wings classic.

Tedeschi Trucks Band kicked things off with Stevie Wonder’s “Love Having You Around” before Susan Tedeschi addressed the audience. TTB then reeled off a trio of originals: “Shame,” “Don’t Know What It Means” and “Midnight In Harlem.” Next, Krasno emerged for Sleppy John Estes’ “Leaving Trunk.” Kraz got the song going with an opening riff before the rest of the band dropped in with a funky groove featuring Derek Trucks on slide guitar. The tune featured a complementary interplay between Krasno and Trucks. Krasno and TTB then headed into “Volunteered Slavery” by jazz saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, which the band revved up to an almost gospel-like ending.

After Krasno departed, the band delivered their classic “Bound For Glory” ahead of covers of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery” and the Hunter/Garcia composition “Sugaree.” Following TTB’s “Made Up Mind,” the band welcomed Chris Wood on bass for the Wings old-school rocker “Let Me Roll It,” which saw a fiery slide solo from Trucks with Wood holding down the deep end. TTB continued on with “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free,” “How Blue Can You Get” and the classic set closing section of “The Storm” into “Whipping Post” before retaking the stage for an encore of The Coasters’ “Let’s Go Get Stoned.”
