The Derek Trucks Band


                     




Grammy Award winner Derek Trucks is referred to as "the slide guitar prodigy," and in 1994, he founded the Derek Trucks Band. As the Derek Trucks Band blends blues, southern rock, jazz, classical music, afro-beat and world music, their music is quite hard to categorize. Derek plays guitar/slide guitar along with World-instruments such as a Sarod and a dobro, along with a keyboard/flute player, a bassist, a vocalist and two drummers. The band performs lots of improvisation during their live shows. They have received many awards, most noteably a "Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album" and also have received the Band of the Year for Blues Music Award of 2011. Already huge in popularity, the band is continuously growing and evolving.
