Concert Review by Rich Denis on 7/16/2015   

The Wheels of Soul Tour kicked off their second leg of the Tour in Texas this past weekend with a 3 day run across the state.  Featuring the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and special guest Doyle Bramhall II, this tour is a must see.  No stranger to the Texas July sun , Doyle Bramhall and his band kicked off the night.  It was hot but that didn’t keep the loyal fans from getting down.  It was a short set but we would see him again later that night.

Following Doyle was Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.  After a warm-up by the Dap-Kings and then a fabulous two song set by the Dapettes, Saundra Williams & Starr Duncan (Saun & Starrs), Sharon Jones came out to give the crowd a set full of soulful energy.  With songs like She Ain’t a child no more and covers from Glady’s Night like Heard it Through the Grapevine, Sharon Jones had the crowd out of their seats to dance with her and after schooling the crowd in some simple 1965 dance moves like The Boogaloo, The Pony, The Mashed Potato, and The Funky Chicken, Sharon got down like it was 1965 and put them all together to show us how it’s done.  She wrapped up her set with a story of how the meaning of Get Up and Get Out has changed for her now that she is on the other side of beating cancer and finally a rendition of This Land Is Your Land.

After Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings wrapped up their scorcher and a quick set change later, Tedeschi Trucks Band opened with Susan’s soul soothing voice singing Made Up Mind while Derek let it rip on guitar getting everyone off their feet by the end of the jam. They then moved into All That I Need before finishing out the first three with their cover of George Harrison’s Wah Wah.  The horns section and vocal harmonies provided by Mike Mattison were on point.  A couple songs later they slowed it down with Midnight in Harlem before bringing back out Doyle Bramhall and Austin native and special guest Jimmie Vaughan to sit in with the band.  Doyle led the band on vocals through St. James Infirmary before leaving the stage to let Jimmy shred with Derek and Susan on Key To The Highway; finally wrapping the set with The Storm after a little Idle Wind.

For the encore Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings joined the band for a great cover of The Letter and then finished up the night with a medley of Sly & The Family Stone Songs that included Sing a Simple Song and I Want To Take You Higher.  It was a 20 piece super-band super-jam and the crowd loved it!

Check out their website for final tour dates.  This is one that should not be missed!
