Rearranging the Strand's rafters with the Tedeschi Trucks Band on Wed, Ap 1 , 8 pm
Singers galore, horn section, 2 drummers, etc: an 11-piece band is an outlier today. It would seem that the Tedeschi Trucks Band is an exceptional outlier.
In their Strand Theater, Shreveport, show, the audience will expect very musical, soulful r & b-flavored tunes and slide guitar that tastes like Silver Moon BBQ. Do not expect to sit down very much. The mojo will be wall-to-wall.
Shout to Shreveport from Susan Tedeschi to interviewer Tiana Kennell: "One of my biggest influences when I went to college — I graduated from Berklee College of Music — was my choir director, Dennis Montgomery III. He was also a choir director in his hometown of Shreveport when he was young." Montgomery, a graduate of Caddo Magnet HS and from a prominent family of Shreveport musicians, has taught music at Berklee for decades.
