The Tedeschi Trucks Band resumed their winter tour on Wednesday night at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium in Chattanooga, Tennessee with support from The Marcus King Band. Members of the MKB sat-in with the TTB on their encore as part of a show in which the band gave away free tickets to local first responders, furloughed government employees and active duty military personnel.

Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks led their group through a series of originals before serving up covers of Jimmy Cliff’s “Sitting In Limbo” and Allen Toussaint’s “Get Out Of My Life, Woman.” The TTB’s own “Made Up My Mind” followed ahead of a drum solo that bled into “Let Me Get By.” Next up was the recently debuted Dr. John cover, “I Walk On Guilded Splinters” and the blues standard “The Sky Is Crying.” A jam on “Mountain Jam” then gave way to the Derek Trucks’ showcase “Midnight In Harlem.” From there, the TTB treated fans to a double dose of Bob Dylan songs in the form of “Down In The Flood” and “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.”

Last night’s set concluded with a run of “Do I Look Worried,” “Idle Wind” and “The Storm.” Tedeschi then called out MKB members guitarist Marcus King, keyboardist Deshawn Alexander, saxophonist Dean Mitchell and trumpeter Justin Johnson for Joe Tex’s “Show Me” to end the evening.
