Tedeschi Trucks Band performed their fifth of six nights at the Beacon Theatre on Friday night, celebrating their 26th show at the esteemed New York City venue. The husband-and-wife duo led their 12 piece ensemble through two sets of originals, covers, and tributes, presenting themselves openly and honestly before a faithful crowd of TTB loyals.
Tedeschi Trucks Band opened Friday night’s show with a victorious “Laugh About It.” From there, the flood gates opened with covers of The Beatles, Leon Russell, Derek Trucks Band, Bobby “Blue” Band, and Joe Cocker for what concluded an energetically-charged first set. For round two, the big band continued the covers with George Jones, Charles Segar, Delaney & Bonnie, Allen Toussaint, John Prine, Jerry Garcia, and Santana, sprinkling originals from their Let Me Get By throughout. The band returned to the stage for a tribute to Tom Petty with “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” then closed their encore with The Coasters reliable “Let’s Go Get Stoned.” While the setlist remained mostly covers, the band delivered original versions of each and stayed true to the roots of the music. The band returns to the stage tonight for one last dance in 2017.
