Tedeschi Trucks Band Welcomes Oteil Burbridge For “Space Captain” At Sunshine Fest [Watch]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band brought their Sunshine Music Festival to a close last night, playing a guest-filled set for the second night of the event in Boca Raton, FL. The band welcomed out a number of familiar guests for the show, including artists like Luther Dickinson and Dave Mason, but the real surprise was an appearance from Dead & Company bassist, Oteil Burbridge.Burbridge and Trucks worked together for many years as members of The Allman Brothers Band, as Burbridge joined the band in 1997 and Trucks in 1999. Trucks has remained vocal about not wanting to rejoin the Allmans should a reunion occur, a fact that was only reinforced by the decision for the two Allman Brothers musicians to not perform an Allman Brothers song together. Instead, they jammed out on “Space Captain,” the famed Joe Cocker tune that implores us all to learn to live together!Of course, Burbridge’s brother Kofi Burbridge is also a member of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, also adding to the family feeling of Oteil’s presence on stage. Oteil himself was even a member of the TTB in its earliest iteration, but ultimately left in 2012 to focus on raising a family of his own.Thanks to our own Kendall Deflin, we can share a video of this one-off collaboration.
