Tedeschi Trucks Band performed to a sold-out crowd at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Aug. 9 in Paso Robles. The band was founded in 2010 in Jacksonville, Fla., and the following year was awarded the best blues album at the 54th annual Grammy Awards.

The husband-and-wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi realized that by putting their solo careers and bands on hiatus, it would benefit the marriage to focus on making music, and allow them to spend more time together with their 10-year-old daughter while touring with their new band.

During the Saturday night concert, Trucks was showing his innovative slide playing, and setting a standard that all other blues players can only hope to achieve. Tedeschi — for years an incredible blues guitarist with a unforgettable voice that draws you into her world of music — did not let her audience down and, alongside her husband, they have created a legendary partnership in the blues and rock world.

Among the songs the band performed were “Part of Me,” “Everybody’s Talkin’,” “Midnight in Harlem,” “Learn How to Love” and “Do I Look Worried.”

This summer’s concert tour of Tedeschi Trucks Band could be history in the making in the music world.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
