Tedeschi Trucks Band, 7/30/11


Tedeschi Trucks Band (with Dirty Dozen Brass Band)
Chastain Park Amphitheatre
Atlanta, GA
July 30, 2011

On Saturday July 30th 2011, the Tedeschi Trucks Band visited Atlanta for their second time in just four months. After dominating the Center Stage back in April, the band would bask in the summertime at the celebrated Chastain Amphitheatre. In regards to the 11 piece group’s advancement in the short time frame, a bearded Derek Truck’s stated (in an Honest Tune interview from the previous day), “as great as the center stage was, we’ve at least doubled it.” It turns out that Derek was right and that a band that was already delivering phenomenal performances earlier in the year had managed to take it to a whole other level. Perhaps it was the additional time on the road. Maybe it was the fact that they were again playing for the “home town crowd.” Or was it due to the assistance of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band or the spirit of Duane Allman that was proverbially summoned through the playing of his ’57 Gold Top Les Paul? Whatever it was, Atlanta was blessed with an incredibly tight passionate performance on an increasingly rare temperate summer night.
