slides: Wheels of Soul Tour Hits PPAC
Sunday, July 09, 2017
It was a triple header lineup that featured Hot Tuna, The Wood Brothers, and Tedeschi Trucks Band.
An evening of some hard hitting blues rock ensued beginning with Hot Tuna, led by Jefferson Airplane alum Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. The band’s roots go back nearly fifty years and had transcended time, continuing to perform flawlessly for their loyal following.
The Wood Brothers followed the legendary band, showing why they have established themselves as a solid up and coming musical talent over the last decade. Brothers Oliver and Chris Wood, along with multi-talented Jano Rix, were the perfect fit for this fest of good ole American blues and soul.
The evening capped off with the highlighted Tedeschi Trucks Band featuring Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, leading a super tight band of some serious percussion and brass.
They performed band staples such as “Anyhow”, and “Laugh About It”, as well as some solid covers with the likes of Derek and the Dominos’ “Keep On Growing”, The Beatles’ “Within You Without You”, John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery”, Jerry Garcia’s “Sugaree”, and Santana’s “Soul Sacrifice”. They finished the evening with their rendition of Joe Cocker’s “Space Captain”.
The Wheels of Soul Tour was truly an experience that electrified one’s senses with a broad array of some great blues rock and soul.
GoLocalProv was there to capture the energy; see the slideshow of pictures below.
