A Sunday Family Picnic with The Tedeschi Trucks Band at CMCUA

A Sunday Family Picnic at CMCUA

By: Gene Lazo

The Wheels of Soul Tour 2017 Sunday night at Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre was in many respects a family show featuring Hot Tuna, The Wood Brothers and The Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady are musical brothers that go back to the early days of rock with Jefferson Airplane and American blues and roots music with their concurrent Hot Tuna project. While the airplane flew off to become a pop starship, Hot Tuna has stayed true to their roots with only the subtle changes that playing in parts of 6 decades inevitably brings.

Hot Tuna has remained consistently Kaukonen and Casady, 2 musicians (aided by Justin Guip on drums for this tour) of a single mind playing music that emanates from a common soul.

The Wood Brothers (Chris and Oliver Wood along with multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix) are biological brothers originally from Colorado who play what has been called soulful folk. This tour sees them expanding their sound a bit to include some electric instruments along with their traditional acoustic guitar and standup bass.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band (TTB) was formed by husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi in early 2010 with their first gig at the Savannah Music Festival. They’ve been on the road since with a fairly consistent lineup that has grown from 8 to 12 members.  

Both Trucks (formerly of The Allman Brothers Band) and Tedeschi are formidable musicians each in their own right. Together they bring a marriage of blues, rock, soul, and gospel music joined together into something definitely American.

TTB opened the night with “Anyhow” from their new album Let Me Get By and finished the 10-song main set with the title track from that album. In between was a mix of originals as well as covers of blues staples like “Get Out of My Life, Woman” and “How Blue Can You Get.”

The evening closed with the Ray Charles song “Let’s Go Get Stoned.” Perhaps not a family song in the traditional sense, but certainly one which conveys the rollicking good time that a musical family is all about.
