Wanee Music Festival: Derek Trucks Band

A Photo Journal by George Weiss

First Appeared in The Music Box, April 2007, Volume 14, #4


The 2007 Wanee Music Festival was held on April 13-14 at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. This year's stellar line-up included performances by The Allman Brothers Band, Nickel Creek, Gov't Mule, The Radiators, Keller Williams, and many others. The Derek Trucks Band supported its latest effort Songlines with a special midnight set with Susan Tedeschi. The group opened the show with a cover of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's Volunteered Slavery, and it also performed renditions of Key to the Highway, You Got the Silver, Walkin' Blues, and The Band's classic The Weight. Fortunately, longtime Music Box supporter George Weiss was on hand to provide visual documentation of the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
