Last night, Tedeschi Trucks Band continued their 2018 Wheels of Soul tour with The Marcus King Band and Drive-By Truckers at Atlanta, GA’s Fox Theater. The tour’s collaborative spirit continued in full force at the Fox, with Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Kofi Burbridge and Kebbi Williams joining the Marcus King Band for a trio of tunes to round out their opening set. Drive-By Truckers followed in kind, welcoming Williams, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi of TTB, as well as frontman Patterson Hood‘s father and legendary Muscle Shoals guitarist David Hood, for a rendition of Eddie Hinton‘s “Everybody Needs Love”.Tedeschi Trucks Band also had plenty of surprises in store for their headlining set in Atlanta. First, they welcomed longtime Derek Trucks Band percussionist Yonrico Scott to add rhythmic texture to a rendition of “Leavin’ Trunk”, written by Sleepy John Estes (as “Milk Cow Blues”) and popularized by Taj Mahal on his self-titled 1968 debut album.For the final song of their set, Tedeschi Trucks Band welcomed the biggest surprise guest of the night, guitar virtuoso Jimmy Herring. In addition to Herring’s past work with Aquarium Rescue Unit, his current gig as the lead guitarist for Widespread Panic, and much more, Herring briefly spent time with the Allman Brothers Band playing alongside Trucks. At the Fox, Jimmy and Derek traded solos on an electrifying, extended rendition of Allman Brothers classic “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”.
