Tedeschi Truck Band

Recommended Posts

Had to spend last week at our Global Office in Boston MA (not Lincolnshire!) 

Whilst there a friend took me to a gig. I went to see the Tedeschi Truck Band and had my mind literally blown away.

Possibly the best set I've been to in the last 5 years.

I know for my esteemed colleagues of this forum the TTB will be old news but finding a new (old) band was the best Christmas present I'll get. 

Does anyone know if they've ever played the festival before?

I know they pick their venues for the acoustics so Glastonbury may not be one they want but it would be an epic experience.

If you don't know them they are playing two nights in London in April. I'd recommend a trip.

Doesn't look like they have, from what's in the efestivals line-ups database. The only UK fests they've played as far as we know is the indoor Bluesfest.

Never seen them before, but after really enjoying the new album I've got tickets for their visit to the UK in April.

Be surprised (but very happy!) if they come back in June - you never know!

I listened to then before the gig but seeing them live was special.

I'm hoping my dates work out so i can see them  in April

On a different note I was asked by a fellow concert attendee if I could whistle quieter! 

Was quite put out that I could whistle louder then she could listen!

Never had that before and it did make me chuckle!

Theyre ace, but like a shit-tonne of these looser US rockbands, European festivals ain't interested.

People have no interest so these sort of bands don't get booked over here. If they played it would probably be in the Acoustic tent to about 100 people. Or some novelty slot in the Avalon cafe. 

Good thread this. A few of the bands rumoured in the thread played the festival that year.

Thanks for the thread link. I'll take a look through.

I do agree with the lack of interest comments in the UK. I'd never heard of them. I also wouldn't of seen them without being taken.

Having said that they smashed it!

Tedeschi’s band sold out their tour when they were here last. The US touring/festival market is so lucrative now, there is limited space in the diary to play euro dates in summer.

There's plenty on this I'd love to see. Some have played Glastonbury recently (Margo Price, First Aid Kit, etc), but plenty more that should be invited.

I have seen them live and they are awesome. They have about ten people in the band and everyone is allowed to shine. 

to me this video shows the most the most idyllic side of a festival. The sun is shining the groove is easy. You just close your eyes and lose yourself in the moment.

Hadn't seen that, great tune, thanks for sharing.

Makes me wish for a hot afternoon somewhere on the farm!

Coincidentally I was introduced to these earlier this year. Never heard of them before then but completely hooked. I'd love it if they pitched up.

I’ve followed this band for a good few years, there live shows are always good. I can’t see them playing Glastonbury, don’t really think they do the big festivals at all. There much better in much smaller events.
