After selling out four nights at the Beacon Theatre in New York City earlier this fall, Tedeschi Trucks Band will make their debut at Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater on January 26, 2016 with a special show celebrating the release of their bold, self-assured new album Let Me Get By, set for January 29 release via Fantasy/Concord. Doyle Bramhall II, who performed and co-wrote on the album, will open.
Let Me Get By is an artistic leap forward for the GRAMMY award winning, 12-piece ensemble. It’s the first album that Derek Trucks has made since his departure from the Allman Brother’s Band, and the first album that he and Susan Tedeschi wrote and recorded entirely within the band, at Swamp Raga, their backyard studio located at their home in Jacksonville, FL.
A second album track, “Don’t Know What It Means” just premiered via Garden & Gun, listen here.
A portion of net proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which donates musical instruments to under-funded school music programs across the country in an effort to give more students the many benefits of music education. To date, thousands of instruments have been donated to 1,356 school music programs nationwide, 78 in New York City.
“The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation is doing great things and anything this band can do to support and fund art in schools is right up our alley,” say Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. “Kids these days need healthy and inspiring hobbies, and putting instruments in their hands instead of electronic devices is a great start.”
TICKETS ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FRIDAY DECEMBER 18 AT 10:00AM
