B. B. King had a nice opening set. Mostly talking, sing along but he did play The Thrill Is Gone.

Tedeschi Trucks wore it out. Susan sang her ase off. Derek hit the note. Great solos by Oteil and Kofi. Mike sang one song. Did I say Derek Trucks was there. They played a good bit of the last cd.

Kay and I had our 30th wedding adv gig last nite and it was great. Thanks Tedeschi Trucks Band and BB.

We did not have the front row seats that Rusty and Donna had but we were behind them about 20 rows. Sorry I could not say hello to ya'll. The crowd was into it and the Amp was close to full.

This was the first gig together for Kay and I since she has had cancer and we had a blast.

Praying for all of you with troubles and all in the path of Issac.

Peace.
Billy

No sit-ins, but great performances from both acts.

B.B.'s performance was at least 400% better than his last outing in Alabama. There were a couple of senior moments and he was chatty. To be honest, I think B.B. has always been chatty - even in his prime, he was a bit of a story teller.

His band was as stellar as ever and B.B. showed flashes of the fire that he has passed on to every person who ever picked up a guitar. He actually completed each song, though I think he accidentally merged two tunes early on. The band was so good that it was seamless. I don't think too many folks even noticed. The crowd adored him and he reciprocated.

TTB. Damn! What do you say? Just the tightest, hardest-working band out there these days! Not a weak-link in the chain! This band is not just our future - they're our present! The torch has been passed.

Thanks to Rusty and Donna for the company and the ride !!

as for the show, well, it is in my top 5 all time.
Our mindset going in was, pay respect to BB..we had heard how tough his shows had been but he more than exceeded my greatest expectation.

I continue to be amazed at how one note from that mans soul can slay me..

As for Tedeschi Trucks, well, i must say this tops any show i have seen in the last 5 years , with the one exception being the Atlanta Chastain shows of 2008.

massive talent everywhere on stage, and it appeared to me that all band members were into what they are doing and who they are doing it with..

Susan's voice was an instrument and she commanded it..
AWESOME to see them KILL Get What You Deserve with Mike out front..

Kofi played some amazing things and Derek was a fireball of guitar form the opening notes of Everybody's talking..
with love to all, in my book I am witnessing the passing of the torch.
And i can assure you it is in good hands..

As good as the live disc is, it does not do them justice at this point..

they have gotten that much better..

killer vocals all the way around, killer horns, guitar and drums, and oh yeah, OTEIL !!!!!

this is fun to watch..

if you are on the fence, get off it...go see them..

you will come away with a smile..

Great review Lefty and I concur completely!!! I have seen them 5 times with number 6 coming up at the Beacon and they continue to grow and improve each time I see them!!!

Agree 1 million percent Rusty and Lefty. They were f'ing amazing last night in Atlanta, what a great performance. They are the best band touring right now, no one I would rather see and that includes "beloved." Of course I have seen the Brothers about 60 times and that doesn't include live shows viewed on Moogis so something can be said about the freshness of the TTB. I hope someone recorded last nights show, it is a shame that no one recorded their show at Chastain in July of last year.

Great show last night. I've now seen the TTB 6 times since April 2010 and they are my favorite live band to see right now. This show was much different than April at Wanee and much different than Chastain last summer.

"Darling Be Home Soon" was my highlight last night. What a rendition. The sound and vibe and vocals on that one were sublime.

I'm also not sure there is a band where the members have more fun performing. The goofy dancing on stage (by the horns and Oteil with Susan sometimes) is infectious.

BB King had moments of brilliance. I was reminded again what a treasure his voice is. Sorry Susan and Derek did not join him on stage.

Glad everyone had such a great time. I was really happy to read this ^^. I've seen them 4 times and have been absolutely floored each time at how much they improve over just the course of a few months.

I chose to pass on this one.....B.B. King just wasn't OK last time I saw them. I preferred the memory of him in his prime sharing the stage with Muddy Waters on the riverboat at Jazzfest. Just my way of looking at things.

I saw TTB last year, and it was OK, but just not the deep immersion I've come to expect from Derek. It was good, different. But not as intense. Maybe I should take another look, now that they've had more time to gel.

I did hear more comments here about this show than the Phish show in B'ham Friday, kinda' surprised me. A number of folks went to one or the other. Derek has a nice following here.

You should give TTB another try, Bupp. The band is evolving and throwing down IMO.

As for BB, saw him whoop so much a$$ in 1970s and 80s, back when he would do a second late show at a club and would take off his tie and unbutton his shirt and play more instrumentals tunes than vocal-led songs, and other times when he would headline a triple bill at the historic and prestigious Music Hall in Cincinnati with Millie Jackson and Bobby Blue Bland and the audience was outfitted to the nines in fancy dresses and suit and ties and the babes would throw their shawls and scarves to Bobby and BB from the balconies ~~ MERCY~~ and the real Caldonia would show up, old as can be - so it would be hard to see him now. Still yet - his genius, and why he is one of the four guitarists who have influenced me the most, is what he can do with three notes instead of three hundred. That is his brilliance!!

Link to the Birmingham News review of the Tuscaloosa show - with a set of pictures ... and 1 reader comment ... that might sound familiar.

Thanks Rusty, though not much of a review. "Rebelcam" set 'em straight!

The AJC did not have a review, sadly. It has gotten much better w/ reviews lately.

you should go bupp..

this is an amazing band..

they are simply the best band out there right now ( including the 'beloved" Ryan..lol) for my money..

Derek's solos are more intense now then I have ever heard them be..and this is coming from a guitar player that would love nothing more than to hear Derek solo for 6 hours in a row

i don't have much time to go to shows but when I do, i want to see people that are into it, and prepared to give me their best effort for my hard earned money...

this band does

Lefty's review makes me that much more excited to see the band again next month at the Beacon. It's not one of the B.B. shows, but Leon Russell opens and I'd expect a sit-in on Space Captain or something like that. Everybody's Talkin' is great, and if they've stepped above and beyond that it should be something to behold.

Algebraically speaking, of course.

Gotta say Lefty that you've really whet my appetite for September 8th at The Mountain Winery here in the Bay area.
