OAKLAND —The Tedeschi Trucks Band played to a near-sell-out-crowd Friday at the Fox Theater, the first of two Bay Area shows. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, home of bands like the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet and .38 Special, Tedeschi Trucks follow firmly in the tradition of blues and Southern rock.

Tedeschi Trucks Band, Hard Working Americans
8 p.m., Saturday
The Fox, Oakland
Tickets: Sold out.

Led by husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the band had 12 musicians on stage, including a brass section. Saxophonist Kebby Williams’ soloing provided a lively accent to Trucks’ and Tedeschi’s soulful vocals.

Their two-hour set featured a cover of the Allman Brothers’ “Anyday,” as well as original compositions “Let Me Get By” and “Midnight in Harlem.”

The finale featured Tedeschi Trucks Band and openers, the Hard Working Americans, on stage at the same time to perform a cover of Bob Dylan and The Band’s 1967 song, “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.”

Both bands will be back at the Fox tonight, and that show is sold out.
