Grammy award-winning blues rockers the Tedeschi Trucks Band will take the Chevy Court stage at 8 p.m. Thursday, August 23 at the 2018 Great New York State Fair. It’s the first appearance at the Fair for the group. Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
After seven years, three studio albums and hundreds of shows together, Tedeschi Trucks Band are still an evolving experience – in membership, song bag, creative reach and the exuberant, always-rolling laboratory of concert work. The TTB journey began on April 1, 2010 with their first gig at the Savannah Music Festival, and led to the recording and release of their Grammy-winning debut album “Revelator” in 2011 and “Made Up Mind” two years later. During their five-year rise, the group toured incessantly, raising their profile and being handpicked to play with the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Santana; to appear on television shows hosted by Jay Leno, Conan, and on the premiere of Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” as well as hosting special all-star musical salutes themselves, including Bonnaroo’s Superjam in 2014 (with Chaka Khan, Anthony Hamilton, Taj Mahal, and others), and Lock’n Festival’s Tribute to Joe Cocker’s “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” in 2015 (with Leon Russell, Rita Coolidge, and many other original members.) Their 2016 studio album “Let Me Get By” (Fantasy) earned praise from Rolling Stone, the Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press, who called it "one of the great records of the year," and opened at #15 on the Billboard 200, the group's third album in a row to debut in the Top 20.
