Detroit JazzFest - Derek Trucks Band


Recommended Posts

Just looking over the 2008 Detroit JazzFest lineup, and I see DTB on the list. On the past, there would be at least 3-4 performers I would want to see, and it a definitely a good time, just don't think there is enough of a draw to go this year.

FYI, it is 100% FREE.
