As previously reported, the Derek Trucks Band is taking its first extended hiatus in 16 years. The band’s drummer Yonrico Scott will use the time off to record an album with his own band. The Yonrico Scott Band formed in 2004 and features fellow DTB members Kofi Burbridge (keyboards/flute) and Todd Smallie (bass). The musicians recently spent time in Greenville, SC recording a new Yonrico Scott Band album. The drummer became familiar with the city after his son attended college at Furman. Scott’s new album will also include appearances by Charles Hedgepath and Shannon Hoover. Scott will lead a drum clinic at Athens, GA’s Globe Upstairs this Saturday.
