Derek Trucks, blues/blues-rock guitarist , born Jun 8, 1979 in Jacksonville, FL, is the nephew of longtime Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks. He displays a command of slide guitar styles running the gamut from blues to classic R&B and early rock & roll to classic jazz. Although blues players like Buddy Guy, Elmore James, and Duane Allman have been a strong influence on Trucks' slide guitar playing, so have pre-'70s jazz players like John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Sun Ra. Trucks began playing guitar when he was nine, and shared stages and sat in with the likes of Buddy Guy and the Allman Brothers Band by the time he was 12.
In 1997 he formed The Derek Trucks Band, with whom he won a GRAMMY Award in 2010. Today, in addition to touring with The Allman Brothers Band, Trucks co-leads Tedeschi Trucks Band with his wife, Susan Tedeschi. Ranked as #16 in Rolling Stone's recent poll of the 100 Greatest Guitarists.

Susan Tedeschi, born on November 9, 1970, in Boston, Massachusetts. Tedeschi has opening for John Mellencamp, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, The Allman Brothers Band, Taj Mahal and Bob Dylan. In 2000, Just Won't Burn reached Gold record status for sales of 500,000 in the United States, rare for a blues production. She recorded two tracks with Double Trouble band members Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon for their album. She opened for The Rolling Stones in 2003.
Susan Tedeschi's voice has been described as a blend of Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin, not surprising given that both have been her influences. Her guitar playing is influenced by Buddy Guy, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Freddie King and Doyle Bramhall II.
2000 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist
2003 Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance
2004 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Wait For Me

Warren Haynes, born in Asheville, North Carolina on April 9, 1960,
A powerhouse singer and guitarist, North Carolina-native and GRAMMY Award-winner Haynes earned his reputation as a member of three of the greatest live groups in rock history: The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead and his own Gov't Mule. ~Blues greats Freddie King and B.B. King were both early influences on Haynes, who has a dynamic gravel-and-honey voice and a guitar universe that encompasses rock, soul, R&B and jazz. ~Haynes is also a major supporter of Habitat for Humanity, for which he organizes his annual "Christmas Jam" benefit, now in its 23rd year.
He is ranked number #23 on Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time.
