LIVE: The Derek Trucks Band @ The Egg, 12/13/09

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

The Derek Trucks Band was headed off on an indefinite hiatus, so their last scheduled concert – at The Egg on Sunday evening – was sure to be a big send-off.

The fans were primed. And the band was taking no prisoners with a generous three-hour, two-set performance. But there was no big farewell. No goodbyes at all, in fact.

Just a great night of progressive blues music that scrambled The Egg.

The first hour-long set opened with the slinky groove of King Curtis’ classic “Soul Serenade” and came to a rousing conclusion with a roar through Bob Dylan’s “Down in the Flood.” In was hard to believe that the band could top it with their second set.

But they did.
