Tedeschi Trucks Band kicked off their night of a three-night run at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. Like the Paradise Rock Club, the Orpheum is another favorite venue of mine. It’s a vintage theater tucked into downtown Boston, perfect for acts like TTB.
Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna fame, opened the show and eventually came out for a “Key to the Highway” which was short but sweet.
The real fireworks came at the encore with Derek, Susan and crew covering Joe Cocker’s “Space Captain.” The song is one of their favorites to perform and is a joy to watch. The highlight is watching Derek Trucks and Elizabeth Lea have a guitar-trombone battle. Top it off with Susan’s soulful vocals and you got one hell of an encore!
