Leon Russell and Eric Krasno Join Tedeschi Trucks Band

Tedeschi Trucks Band kicked off a three-night run at New York’s Beacon Theater last night. The new project led by Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks hopes to make their September Beacon shows an annual event, featuring different opening acts and surprise guests. Last night, the legendary Leon Russell opened the show and sat in with Tedeschi Trucks Band for The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Darling Be Home Soon” and the classic “Space Captain” (which Russell recorded with Joe Cocker). Later in the night, longtime Trucks collaborator Eric Krasno emerged for a selection of songs, including “Learn How To Love,” “These Walls,” “Stevie’s Groove” and “Uptight.”

Tedeschi Trucks Band will return to the Beacon this evening. The Wood Brothers will open the night.

We were there. I thought Leon was terrific, playing with a sharp band, this was one of the best performances I have heard by Leon. Great music, great night!! Tedeschi-Trucks were just awesome too.

Saw this band Saturday night at the Beacon.. WOW!!! Great music, excellent arrangements. What a fabulous, talented group of musicians. Susans voice is to die for, Deriks slide guitar is to live for. This band is tight. If you haven’t seen them you don’t what you are missing! Find them, see them, hear them, you’ll be a fan.
