Blues on the Fox, celebrated 20 years on June 17 and 18, 2016 at RiverEdge Park in downtown Aurora, IL.  Saturday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band headlined the red hot blues line-up along with Los Lobos, Larry McCray and Leland.  The combination of Tedeschi Trucks Band and Los Lobos at the Blues on the Fox, was a sneak peek for the Wheels of Soul Tour 2016. David Hidalgo of Los Lobos even came out on stage to join Tedeschi Trucks Band to cover “Keep On Growing” by Derek and the Dominos, as well as The Sky Is Crying by Elmore James cover. What a treat for fans of both Tedeschi Trucks Band and Los Lobos.

Tedeschi Trucks Band, an 11-piece tour-de-force, was formed in 2010 by Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Trucks, was placed as #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone, while Tedeschi delivers passionate, blues soaked vocals for a range of R&B to ballads. The group enlists dual drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass, and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective.

Let Me Get By is the third and latest studio album which was released in January 2016 via  TTB’s third studio album (behind Revelator-2011 and Made Up Mind-2013) is slated for release in January, 2016. As well, the album features the first lead vocals on a TTB album by Mike Mattison (on “Crying Over You” and “Right On Time”), whose mastery as a lyricist and songwriter has always been a central part of the TTB sound.
