Tedeschi Trucks Band Brings Their Magic To The Arizona Desert [Videos]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band brought their magic to the desert on Tuesday night with a spellbinding performance to open their two-night run at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. Following the opening act, Austin, Texas’ The Greyhounds, who perfectly set the tone for the evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered a near-two-hour set mixed with old favorites and newer instant classics among the group’s legion of fan.Tedeschi Trucks Band Welcomes Blake Mills & Carey Frank For Night One In LA [Setlist/Photos]During the show, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered some well-loved tunes from their earlier catalog, such as “It’s So Heavy”, “Part of Me”, and a bold “Bound for Glory” encore. The show also saw the group lay out a fiery rendition of Derek & The Dominoes’ “Anyday”, which offered some dynamic vocal work between Susan Tedeschi and Mike Mattison, as well as Tedeschi Trucks Band’s own take on Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.” Also on the docket for the evening was the band’s relatively new number, “Shame”, which made its debut over the summer and was performed last during the group’s highly anticipated run at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre this past weekend.Relive Tedeschi Trucks Band & Trey Anastasio’s Collab At The Beacon [Pro-Shot Video/Audio]However, one of the stand-out MVPs of the evening was Kofi Burbridge, who it’s safe to say is fully back in the saddle following his medical emergency earlier in the year that prevented him from touring with the group while he recovered. Last night’s show in Phoenix saw a stand-out performance by Burbridge, with his awe-inspiring flute solo leaving the crowd’s jaws dropped. Derek Trucks made his way across the stage to initiate the solo, and then followed it with a particularly effortless slide guitar rebuttal, underlying the undeniable chemistry between the two prolific musicians.Tedeschi Trucks Band Side Project, Whose Hat Is This?, Announces Winter Tour Tedeschi Trucks Band will return to the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday. Thanks to Glen Petitt for capturing some of the magic from Tedeschi Trucks Band’s show in Phoenix last night.

Boeheim talks new lineup, Obokoh’s role with McCullough injured; no update on freshman forward’s status

first_img Published on January 12, 2015 at 1:12 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Chris McCullough’s injury means that Tyler Roberson will start for Syracuse.Jim Boeheim, speaking on the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference on Monday afternoon, talked about his adjusted rotation and the role of previously third-string center Chinonso Obokoh moving forward. McCullough’s injury — which the SU (12-4, 3-0 ACC) head coach had no update on — has caused Boeheim to open up an eight-man rotation that will include the offensively limited sophomore Obokoh and sophomore forward B.J. Johnson.Roberson has consistently come of the bench for Syracuse lately, often splitting time with McCullough at power forward or manning the spot while McCullough filled in for Rakeem Christmas at center. Roberson is averaging 6.9 points and 6.3 rebounds in 23.2 minutes per game.Boeheim made it clear that unlike McCullough, Roberson would not be sliding into the center position.“Chino has to play there and Tyler’s going to start at forward and we’ll bring B.J. Johnson in at either forward spot,” Boeheim said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJohnson has played 190 minutes for the Orange in 11 appearances, but hasn’t played since ACC play began. His last appearance was a nine-minute, 0-for-1 shooting showing in a 61-44 SU win against Cornell on Dec. 31. He had two assists, a turnover and missed his only free throw in the game. Against Florida State, he sat to the left of assistant coach Adrian Autry.Obokoh recorded four fouls in five minutes against the Seminoles, shooting o-for-1 from the field and snagging a rebound. He has played 43 total minutes this season in seven games.The 6-foot-9 Nigerian-born center said Boeheim told him to keep his hands up and not foul opponents driving through the lane.“I almost brought them back into the game, so that kind of game is not good and I hope it’s not going to happen again,” Obokoh said after SU’s 70-57 win over Florida State.On Monday, Boeheim said that Obokoh needs to help the team on defense and rebound the basketball with any increased minutes he gets.When asked what kind of role he saw for Obokoh offensively, Boeheim said, “He’s got to play defense and rebound.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
