Live Review + Gallery: Tedeschi Trucks Band and Blackberry Smoke at Riveredge Park, Aurora, IL (07.21.19)

Tedeschi Trucks Band are out on the road on their Wheels of Soul tour in support of their 2019 album, Signs. Blackberry Smoke, and Shovels & Rope are in support.

The jam-packed July 21stshow at Aurora, Illinois’ Riveredge Park had the band picking up where it left off after January’s multi-night run at Chicago Theatre: super tight full ensemble band bringing musical heat to warm the souls of the faithful.

The TTB faithful sang and swayed to the band’s multi-faceted style and setlist (see below, along with full gallery) that covered the band’s four albums, encompassing blues, R&B, gospel, soul, rock, etc… Dual drummers, a full horn section, multiple back-up singers, and keys complemented the linchpins of the group’s musical presentation – Derek Trucks’ impeccable guitar work, and Susan Tedeschi’s strong, yet soulful voice. When she wasn’t serenading the crowd, she was chatting them up, even sharing that the show fell on the 20thanniversary of her introduction to Derek Trucks, now her husband as well as musical partner.

The 2+ hour concert TTB set also featured appearances by the members of the opening groups, Blackberry Smoke, and Shovels & Rope. In their own set, Blackberry Smoke were well received and did a nice job warming up the crowd with their version of rock with a southern vibe.
