The Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Wheels Of Soul tour is off and running, stopping last night at the renowned Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY for a full night of musical celebration. Initially conceived last summer, Wheels of Soul pairs TTB with some of the best groups around. This summer, the band brought along The North Mississippi Allstars and Los Lobos for the run, and brought out members from each supporting group to enhance their own performance.
No stranger to collaborations, the Tedeschi Trucks Band has hosted some all-stars in their day. Last night, the band brought out a ton of guests, including Cesar Rosa, David Hidalgo and Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, as well as Luther Dickinson of NMA. After about 10 songs of just TTB action, the band first called on Rosa for Elmore James’ “The Sky Is Crying” before bringing out Dickinson for “Angel From Montgomery” and “Let Me Get By.”

It was the encore that saw Hidalgo and Berlin appear with TTB, coming out for the two-song boogie of “Who Knows What Tomorrow May Bring” and “Sticks and Stones.” By all accounts, the show was a real treat.
