Taking the stage a little after 7:30 p.m., Tedeschi Trucks Band played the final set of the Sunshine Music Festival on Sunday.
As Florida residents, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi seemed to feel right at home at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheater. The band got off on a good foot, starting their single set by debuting a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Love Having You Around,” before sinking into their newest original tune “Shame,” which has yet to appear on a studio record.
Following TTB’s “Don’t Know What It Means” and “Midnight in Harlem,” their longtime friend and collaborator Eric Kranso joined them onstage for versions of Taj Mahal’s “Leavin’ Trunk” and the second-ever performance of their song “Save Me.” As some may recall, Krasno toured with Tedeschi Trucks Band in the summer of 2013 as their bassist, after Oteil Burbridge left the group to start a family and eventually join Dead & Company.
Later in the evening, Susan Tedeschi sang a stirring rendition of the Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree” before livening things up with “Made Up Mind.”
The band welcomed their second guest of the night when bassist Chris Wood of Medeski Martin & Wood joined in on a cover of Paul McCartney & Wings’ “Let Me Roll It.”
The show wrapped up with Derek Trucks tapping into his Allmans roots and performing “Whipping Post,” before the band encored with Ray Charles’ “Let’s Go Get Stoned.”
After a short break, Tedeschi Trucks Band will get back on the road in February, not to mention their lengthy Wheels of Soul Tour this summer.
