Husband-and-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi recently put aside their own projects and joined together for the Tedeschi Trucks Band, and they’ll be bringing the band to Chastain Park Amphitheatre this weekend. The sprawling 11-piece band includes many musicians who have worked with the pair through the years, including Allman Brothers bassist Oteil Burbridge. The group’s debut album, “Revelator,” was released in June to glowing reviews. Rolling Stone calls it a “meaty masterpiece.”
To celebrate the band’s return trip to town, following an April appearance at Center Stage as part of the Jim Beam Live Music Series, we’re giving away a Jim Beam Silvertone Electric Guitar signed by The Tedeschi Trucks Band. For a chance to win, like our AJC Atlanta Music Scene Facebook page and comment on the post there, telling us about your love of the Tedeschi Trucks Band or why you should get the guitar. Don’t leave your comments here, but on the Facebook page. We’ll randomly select the lucky new guitar owner from those comments after 4 p.m. Friday, July 29.
Here are a few details about the guitar:
