Tedeschi Trucks Band to perform at Stephens Auditorium

Jacob Beals

The Tedeschi Trucks Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Stephens Auditorium. Tickets cost between $25 and $65 and are available to purchase through Ticketmaster at the Iowa State Center Ticket Office.

The rock and blues band consists of 12 members, including husband and wife duo Derek Trucks on guitar and Susan Tedeschi on guitar and vocals.

The group also has an instrumentation that includes drums, bass, flute, saxophone, trumpet and trombone.

The members have been together since 2010, but Trucks and Tedeschi have both released numerous solo albums in the past. 

The band has released three albums, and its first was nominated for a Grammy. Its latest album came out earlier this year and is titled “Let Me Get By.”

Some of the inspiration behind the album came from changes within the band in recent years, including a new record label and more work for the group as it gains success, according to a quote from Trucks on the band’s website. 

Tedeschi and Trucks have been featured on the “Late Show” with Stephen Colbert as musical guests.

The band is currently on its “Wheels of Soul” tour, which will stretch cross country and last until late summer.
