Derek Trucks Makes Joyful Noise with ARU, Ron Holloway and More
Derek Trucks will spend the summer touring under the Soul Stew Revival banner with his wife Susan Tedeschi, brother Duane and longtime Allmans/Tedeschi/Trucks collaborator Ron Holloway. On Thursday, Trucks previewed his summer by bringing Holloway out to play saxophone on Got Over and Blind Crippled & Crazy at Washington, DCs Congressional Blues Festival (which benefits the Music Maker Relief Foundation). The gig ended a busy week of sit-ins for the Derek Trucks Band, which saw the Campbell Brothers perform with the group on Joyful Noise at the University at Buffalo Center For The Arts, Bernie Worrell guest on Salin On at the West Hampton Beach Performing Arts Center and Sam Taylor sing backup vocals on Feel So Bad at Westbury, NYs North Fork Theater.
Last weekend, the Derek Trucks Band also co-headlined a gig at Glen Allen, VAs Innsbrook Pavilion with Aquarium Rescue Unit. A number of musicians took the stage with the Derek Trucks Band throughout the night, including Duane Trucks who played drums on Soul Serenade. ARUs instrumental backbone of Jimmy Herring, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Sipe also appeared onstage with Trucks at various points throughout the night, all taking the stage for a set closing version of Joyful Noise.
