Buddy heard an interview with Derek on MPR.

I don't think we are going to see DTB anytime soon.

I'd be astonished if the dtb came back. I really would.

The TTB is selling out shows, the reviews are glowing, and I keep reading more and more people saying that they had not liked the album but that these live shows they hear are really amazing.and each new show is better than the last.

If all of Derek's hard work with the dtb has enabled him to do this project, and this is his reward, I suspect he is going to enjoy it for a while.

There is plenty of talk that he'll do a side project album with Jimmy Herring, though.

No, and the only way this band is a fantasy is if you find the lineup to be kind of like an all-star team.

Derek and Susan have both made it clear in interviews that they're in this for the long haul and they want to see how far the band can go. They seem to be very happy with both the music and the personal element. Based on reviews I've seen here and the Beacon show this weekend, this band is now starting to take off. They had a ton of talent before, and now they're gelling and getting comfortable as a unit. The dTb lasted 15 or 16 years and the only lineup changes in the last decade were Mike becoming the lead singer (not playing an instrument) and the Count becoming a full-time member instead of a regular guest. It takes time to reach that level, but I think the TTB has made a quantum jump in the last couple of months. In order to find out what this band can be, they have to commit to it fully. There's not much point in putting your band on hold, putting a big a new band, and recording an album, and then going back to the first band after a year or a year and a half. This is what they're doing now.

Jimmy Herring + DT together on a side project? It would be very cool. I hope they relalize it.

To all what happen to + with the TTB I don't think they'll bury the band. If yes, ok. If not, it's ok too because whatever they do we will and can hear Derek and Susan. Maybe not in one band but i willl respect every decision he'll do.

This pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter as well. I LOVED the DTB and wasn't entirely impressed with the TTB record...........The first time I saw them they were the Soul Stew Revival a few years back, then I saw the new incarnation at Crossroads (so I knew what we were getting)....THEN I saw them at the Chicago Theater. Best band I've seen this year, it was like going to church. POWERFUL......like leaving a great ABB show.

I saw TTB in April, then again August...the April show was great, the August show was phenonimal. The TTB is gettin tighter, more cohesive as a unit and they will only get better. Felt like leaving an ABB show in August...I can only imagine the limits of this band. And just an FYI, I never missed a DTB show within a 200 mile radius of home, not counting when they opened for ABB etc

I told Chuck not to say anything to you, but he never listens to me.

I'm perfectly happy with TTB.
In my eyes a perfect synergy of 2 great bands making it into one hell of a superband.
If you see the joy the whole band has at their gigs. They seem totally comfortable.

Sidenote 1: Derek & Jimmy as a side project: looks promising.

Sidenote 2:

That makes me kind of wonder about the WHB??
More or less comparable. The WHB is also doing great now. Would be a pity to stop it at the end of the year. This band also has great potential.
I wouldn't be too surprised if Warren will play 3 bands next year: ABB, Mule & WHB.

reality - it's over

TTB is a great band. Like most people here, I wasn't too keen on them spring 2010. They've jelled and become a great band. Different than DTB, but that's OK - artists need to change. Great in a different way.

I accept and am grateful for what we have, looking to some awesome music in the future.

The DTB just won Grammy, and Derek has always been the main attraction with the DTB. He is not the main attraction with the TTB. Once the TTB tours a bit in support of the new album, Derek will produce a new album with DTB and hit the road. After that, he will be back with TTB. It is no different than Warren. Both Warren and Derek are setting up two bands once ABB ends.

Do you know this as fact?

This is just my opinion. The DTB does not reach Grammy status and call it quits. The band is taking a hiatus. This does not mean the end of DTB. I am looking forward for the next DTB album and tour. I suspect it will be in the next year or two.

I like what Ive heard on tape from TTB and am looking forward to seeing them next month. That said thank good for the tapers who taped the DTB and putting them on archive so I can listen to them whenever I want. A part of me still misses the DTB. The DTB show I saw in 2009 may be the best concert Ive ever been to. On a side note wish I had a tape of that one saw a taper there but I guess he didnt put it up and me being nieve at the time didnt ask about a way to get a copy

Sorry mulelouisville, but there is plenty of evidence that the DTB as we knew them are over, and no evidence whatsoever that your theory is true.

Derek was about as blunt as he could possibly be in the June issue of Hittin' the Note. The DTB is in his rearview mirror and he is not looking back. He may certainly pursue other projects besides TTB, including one with Jimmy Herring, but you are never going to see Derek, Mike Mattison, Todd Smallie, Kofi Burbridge and Yonrico Scott as a working band again.

You have a right to prefer the DTB to TTB, but don't get your hopes up for their return.

Their website states they are taking a hiatus. There is no mention that the band is official over. Anyway, how many times have you heard an artist say the band is done? A few years down the road, they are doing a tour and album. The ABB broke up and did not tour for years, but now we have opportunities to see them play. Led Zeppelin was done, but we were able to see them play several times over the years. TTB might be successful, but you do not build a band to Grammy status to kill the band. If there is demand for DTB, they will eventually perform. Susan also has her own solo career. Is her solo career over? If the TTB can bang out a few more albums soon, the DTB might be on hold for years to come, but you will see them eventually.

I'll go ahead and ask the dumb question: why not? They didn't care about that stuff and it was not something that was going to make a big difference in the course of the band's career. Winning a Grammy they don't even show on TV does not mean you're going to start playing football stadiums instead of clubs. Even in 2010, the guys seemed to acknowledge it was a nice note for the band to go out on.

quote:
The band is taking a hiatus.

When the hiatus was announced a lot of people with reliable sources said the band was not just taking a break - they were done. The truth is pretty obvious at this point. Todd has another gig and so does Rico. Whether it was called a "hiatus" to soften the blow or just because everybody was keeping their options open and wanted to see how this band developed, this is clearly the project that is getting all of Derek and Susan's musical energy. (Derek was not saying there were any specific plans with Jimmy Herring either - if I remember right, he was saying they wanted to do a song-oriented album and that cutting loose with Jimmy Herring would also be fun but was not the idea with Revelator. I will definitely be getting that album if it happens.)

quote:
Susan also has her own solo career. Is her solo career over?

If you read enough interviews with Derek and Susan, I think you see they're really enjoying having a band together personally and professionally instead of working apart (which is the main reason you won't see them going out alone any time soon). Another thing you see is that they were not all that happy with her solo career - sometimes I think Derek felt this even more than Susan did, but either way, you see some dissatisfaction there. Look at how often the lineups in Susan's band changed. Doing an all-covers album was not her idea. Derek has said in some interviews that her previous bands and albums did not reflect all the different things she can do as a singer. In a way that's what this band is supposed to be - the ideal band to support her singing.

You might be right. Anyway, i still say we will see Todd, Yonrico, etc some day. Until then, the TTB it will be.

Reluctantly, I must agree. And having seen the TTB twice during their swing through SoCal, I also hereby admit that I am now a fan.

So.... Derek and Jimmy side project? I'd think the odds are decent of something like Derek, Jimmy, Oteil, Kofi, Apt Q258?. I don't want to indulge in hyperbole - but that would be the sickest band ever... IMO of course.
