(NEWARK, NJ) -- Tedeschi Trucks Band, America’s premier rock-and-roll big band, touring in support of their new album, I Am The Moon, will perform live at New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at 8:00pm.
The Grammy-winning 12-piece powerhouse holds a well-deserved reputation as one of the best live acts touring today. Led by the husband/wife duo of guitarist Derek Trucks and singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, “two of the best roots rock musicians of their generation” (NPR), TTB is known for its world-class musicianship and contemporary blend of a wide range of American musical influences that also define their extensive catalog.
I Am The Moon, TTB's fifth studio release, finds them “at their finest and most adventurous” (NPR). Written while off the road during the pandemic and released in 2022, I Am The Moon “explodes with joyful, powerful and positive music (Guitar Player)” and captures a prolific and collaborative songwriting period for TTB that was inspired by an ancient poem of star-crossed lovers. I Am The Moon includes four albums, I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The Fall, IV. Farewell and four companion films - delivering more than two hours of music that unfold across a robust tapestry of soul, rock, blues, funk, roots and Eastern explorations that propel the treasured American ensemble into new and thrilling creative territory.
