Tedeschi Trucks Band with Sharon Jones at SB Bowl

Derek Trucks Derek Trucks

Featuring Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, TTB rocked down the house with very special guests, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. The two performances were genuinely great and included an opening set by Doyal Bramhall III. During an encore, all three bands took the stage. I was allowed to shoot the first three songs from all three acts, plus the encore, all in the photo pit. The lighting was generally excellent, except that Ms. Jones could have been better lit while they were all on stage together. I did get some great shots, and you can see them on sbbowl.com/photos.

I had an opportunity to shoot TTB late last year at the Arlignton Theatre, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. Both were great shows with good photo opportunities. I've also shot Mr. Bramhall before, when he performed at the Experience Hendrix tribute tour; that show was also at the Arlington, back in 2010.
