Don Williams
Tivoli Theatre
Saturday, Jan. 18, at 8 p.m.
There are few American classics these days, but Don Williams is certainly one of them. Without a doubt Williams-with hits like "Good Ole Boys Like Me," "I Believe In You," "Love Is On A Roll," "Amanda" and "Tulsa Time,"-has always had a knack for finding songs that speak directly to people's hearts. Enlisting the help of his accomplished road band, Williams creates the kind of music that speaks to everyone. There's a broken-in familiarity among his players that can't be created merely by charts and musicians - and those lived-in grooves fit Williams like his trademark Stetson hat. All seats are reserved from $29.50 - $49.50 + convenience fees. Tickets are on sale now at the Auditorium box office, by phone 642-TIXS or 757-5050, and online at www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com

Tedeschi Trucks Band
Tivoli Theatre
Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
In just three years, Tedeschi Trucks Band - the 11-member collective led by husband-wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi - has taken its hearty roots-rich musical mix to audiences across the globe and become a proven music powerhouse. Driven by Trucks' signature slide-guitar sound and Tedeschi's honey-to-husk voice, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers an electrifying blend of blues, soul, jazz, and rock drawing from an ever-evolving song list. Debuting big with Revelator landing a Best Blues Album Grammy as well as a Blues Music Award for Album of the Year, Tedeschi Trucks Band continued that momentum with 2012s dynamic live follow-up, Everybody's Talkin', showing why it is regarded by critics and fans as one of the most superb concert acts around. The group is now touring North America behind the release of its second studio effort, Made Up Mind -which entered Billboard's top 200 at #11 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as "equal parts Stax and Muscle Shoals without dilution of either." All seats are reserved from $35 - $75 + convenience fees. Tickets are on sale now at the Auditorium box office, by phone 642-TIXS or 757-5050, and online at www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com
