Led by former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Derek Trucks and blues guitarist and singer Susan Tedeschi (who is also Trucks' spouse), the Tedeschi Trucks Band have become one of the hottest bands on the contemporary blues scene. Playing a muscular fusion of blues, soul, rock, and funk that's emotionally powerful and technically dazzling, the 11-piece Tedeschi Trucks Band won a Grammy Award for their first studio album, 2011's Revelator, but the group is truly at its best in front of a live audience. Live from the Fox Oakland documents the band on the second night of a two-day stand in Northern California in September 2016. Released on video was well as audio, the show captures the group in strong form, with Trucks saying of the Oakland shows, "The last three or four months with this band have been the most growth I've ever been a part of within a group. I haven't found the ceiling yet."
