Singer22 is having a HUGE SALE
Some of my favorite steals
Derek Trucks is one of the most talented guitarist in the world just look at him rocking out as a 13-year-old with the Allman Brothers in the video
YEAH he is that good. I have always been an Allman Brothers fan but was introduced to the Derek Trucks Band’s Album Songlines last fall. Since then I can’t get enough of Derek or his equally talented wife, Susan Tedeschi. Together they make up the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Below you will find two Spotify Playlist, one for Derek Trucks Band and one The Tedeski Trucks Bands live album Everybody’s Talkin’.
Top Picks- I really do like the songs with singing but I actually prefer the instrumentals on this album, Sahib Teri Bandi- Maki Madni and Mahjoun
Top Picks- its a great live show listen to it the entire way through- no shuffle
Catch them on tour
Last weekend I finally got to see two of my favorite bands perform.
Band of Horses +My Morning Jacket+ Red Rocks= Heaven
Trumbone Shorty opened the night, getting the crowd grooving. Band of Horses played next. Their music and the strong winds that night set the perfect mood for the evening…kinda dark but with alot of sole. The song “Funeral” holds a special place in my heart and brought me to tears. But My Morning Jacket really blew me away. I have always heard they were a great band live and they are… but they’re more, they are true entertainers. A band who knows how to work a crowd- getting you hyped up for a song or calming you for another. Their choice of covers were on point, Elton John’s “Rocket Man” SO GOOD (check out he video below) and The Clash “Rocking the Casbah”!! My favorite song of the night was “Victory Dance” I just love the base, the lyrics and changing vibe, tempo, beat, something that happens throughout the song. If I hadn’t been catching a 6 am flight to Chicago for Lollapalooza (more on that tomorrow), I would have gone to the Saturday show as well. I heard it was one of their best shows to date, with more great cover choices: George Harrison, Velvet Underground, Curtis Mayfield and THE BAND. They also played “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Part.2” which is my favorite MMJ song, ugh… until next time.
