The autumn residency at the Beacon has become a highly anticipated tradition for TTB’s growing legion of fans, as both NYC area residents and travelers from far and wide mark their calendar to catch several shows each year. While legacy artists such as the Allman Brothers Band and Steely Dan made the Beacon their home for multi-night residencies, Tedeschi Trucks Band represents the next generation.
“The room sounds great and feels like home”, says Trucks. “It’s one of the best spots to really turn the band loose. Everybody comes locked and loaded.” Multiple nights also offer fans an extensive live immersion with this genre-defying force that is celebrated for its ever-changing set lists, original song debuts and ability to explore almost any musical territory. “With six shows, we throw the net a little wider, dig deeper into our catalogue and work up new arrangements; it’s a different show every night”.
Appearances with a wide variety of acclaimed musical guests are a frequent highlight for TTB’s Beacon shows. Last year featured sit-ins with Trey Anastasio, Nels Cline and Norah Jones, and prior memorable collaborations – including Jerry Douglas, Taj Mahal, Leon Russell and Rosanne Cash among many others – are a testament to the respect and musical camaraderie that TTB has among its peers in the industry. Trucks adds “There’s been a lot of memorable moments with our friends joining us on stage, and there are also nights we intentionally choose to play without guests so we’re able to focus our energy as a band and really stretch out.”
Formed in 2010, Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands touring today. Critics around the world have praised the collective for their world-class performances. “Downright spiritual,” says No Depression. A “major force in American music,” with “unassailable musicianship across the board,” raves the Austin American Statesman. New York Times columnists also gave spontaneous praise on social media after seeing TTB live at the Beacon in 2017: “…honestly, one of the best shows I've ever seen." (Sopan Deb); “Ok, that was amazing.” (Paul Krugman).
The band is currently working on a fourth studio album, which follows their recent Grammy-nominated live/film release, Live From the Fox Oakland (2017), and their last studio release, Let Me Get By (2016), called “one of the great records of the year” by the Associated Press.
