One of the many great acts to perform at this year's Gathering of the Vibes music festival was the Tedeschi Trucks Band, starring Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Yesterday, the band uploaded a spirited performance of their version of The Box Tops 1967 song, "The Letter." Joe Cocker and Leon Russell also had a hit with their 1970 version of the tune.

The band do a great job of delivering an uptempo energy to their version, enhanced with lively piano and horn playing. Susan's soulful vocals are filled out by background singers, and guitar and saxophone solos are flavorful ingredients in the mix.

The band will be performing at this year's Lockn' Music Festival before heading back out on the road. For the latest music, news, and tour dates from Tedeschi Trucks Band, check out their Zumic artist page.
