In terms of the Derek Trucks Band, he states, “We’re going to take a break for a few years,” confirms the group’s namesake guitarist from his home in Jacksonville, Fla. “We’re not gigging at all this year, and possibly next year.” He emphasizes that his current focus will be the Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, which performs tonight in Red Bank, NJ at the Count Basie Theatre.
Beyond the summer tour with Tedeschi, on September 2 Trucks will perform in Los Angeles at the House of Blues – Sunset Strip for the Guitar Center ‘King Of The Blues’ Grand Finale. The show will not feature the Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, however, it will be a group performance with the musicians yet to be announced.
