Something a little different for Sync. but none the less extraordinary… Grammy Award-winning, power-couple Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, along with their band delivered an outstanding collection of their favourites to a sold out Wembley Arena earlier this month.
Soul, Americana and Blues fans took a pilgrimage from country wide to have all expectations blown clear out of the water by Jacksonville, Florida 12-piece, steamrollering their way round the world on their latest tour.
Extra special highlights include, a flawless vocal from Susan and interplay between backing vocalists throughout, a colourful slide guitar (Derek Trucks) and saxophone (Kebbi Williams) intro to hit Midnight in Harlem and delivery of the The Letter reminiscent of the late Joe Cocker, live at the Filmore in the summer of 1970.
Support was from Atlanta, Georgia-based Blackberry Smoke who also travelled across the pond to open the evenings proceedings. A real musical education.
