Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15 we’re giving away tickets to another fantastic show at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook; The 2016 Wheels of Soul Summer Tour featuring The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Los Lobos and North Mississippi Allstars!

Listen for the cue to call and dial (603)356-9930, and you could be heading to the show, Saturday , July 16!

Tedeschi Trucks Band – Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, an 11-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi’s impassioned, blues-soaked vocals, the Jacksonville-based group earned a Grammy for its debut, Revelator, followed with a dynamic live double disc, Everybody’s Talkin’ and album Made Up Mind. With Derek Trucks having wrapped up his 15-year tenure with The Allman Brothers Band, TTB has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances with an increasing repertoire of soulful neo-classics. TTB just released their latest full album in January of 2016, Let Me Get By, which has so far been one of their favorites.

Los Lobos – Los Lobos have been around since 1973, the band consists of Louis Perez, Steve Berlin, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, David Hidalgo, and Enrique “Bugs” Gonzales. By their debut album How Will the Wolf Survive? (1984) they had won the Grammy award for Best Mexican-American/Trejano Music Performance. In 1987 their hit single “La Bamba” hit No. 1 on the US and UK singles chart. One year later the video had also won MTV Music video award. Four decades, two Grammy awards and almost twenty albums later Los Lobos are still rocking the albums and tours.

North Mississippi Allstars – Made up of brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, North Mississippi Allstars started in 1996. The Dickinson brothers followed their father Memphis Legend Jim Dickinson. They released their debut album Shake Hands with Shorty in 2000, which earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues album. In 2013 the North Mississippi Allstars released their new career-defining record World Boogie Is Coming. The album marked a return to the band’s blues-infused rock & roll roots and pays homage to hill country legends and songwriters like RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. World Boogie Is Coming is the record that perfectly ties it all together, fusing all the elements that have made the Allstars special while pushing the band’s sound further into the future than ever before.
