Unrivaled in their blend of American soul, blues, rock and country, the 12-member Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband and wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and vocalist/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, has curated and cultivated this family-friendly experience into a highlight of the summer concert season. Each year the band selects kindred artists to join their rolling caravan, turning each night into a unique collaborative event rather than simply a three-band bill.  Attracting larger audiences each successive year and expanding to new markets, critics hail the Wheels of Soul tour as “nothing short of spectacular,” celebrating the “life-affirming power of music played with passion, skill and artistry.” tedeschitrucksband.com


Acclaimed American rock band Blackberry Smoke has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. Never a band that stands still, these guys average 250 shows a year and jam all night long for their fans. Not only that, this is the band that Rolling Stone said revived southern rock and toggles between s**t-kicking country, soul and heavy rock. They’ve toured with acts like Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and the Zac Brown Band. Now they’re coming to RiverEdge Park with Tedeschi Trucks Band for a night of some of the best damn music you’ve ever heard. blackberrysmoke.com


What genre would you put Shovels & Rope in? Is it rock? Is it folk? Whatever it is, it’s pretty and loud and tells a good story. Husband and wife team Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent write all the songs, play all the instruments and deliver a soulful, powerful and exuberant Americana experience that perfectly complements this tour. If you’ve never heard these guys before, you’re in for a fantastic night of music that will blow you away. shovelsandrope.com
