July 11, 2016 (STATELINE, Nev.) — Singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks are the husband-and-wife team behind the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Hear their captivating blend of Southern rock, rhythm and blues, soul and country when the Tedeschi Trucks Band performs live in the MontBleu Showroom on Saturday, September 10, 2016.
The 12-piece Tedeschi Trucks Band has quickly become the forerunner of modern roots music. The band got its start in 2010, when Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelved their successful solo careers. Trucks, former guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band, was named #16 of The Top 100 Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine. Tedeschi is blessed with a voice that can deliver everything from powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads.
Their debut album, Revelator (2011), won the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. As of 2016, the band has released three studio albums and one live album, all to critical acclaim. The Los Angeles Times calls Tedeschi Trucks Band “a deeply skilled groove machine.” Relix magazine says the band displays “a peerless brand of musical alchemy as easily cool and consoling as white hot and ascendant.”
Tickets to see Tedeschi Trucks Band at MontBleu are $65, $75 and $85 plus tax and fees. For information on lodging packages, events, activities, accommodations, ticket sales and showroom entertainment, call 1-800-BE-LUCKY or visit www.montbleuresort.com.
