Good luck!

With an amazing year of touring behind them, The Derek Trucks Band is hard at work putting together a new live album to be released in Spring of 2010! As the band pours over tapes and tracks, they’re asking fans to join the effort and be a part of this special album.
For the last 16 years of touring, Derek and the band have played everywhere from backwater juke-joints to massive summer festivals, and at each stop dTb fans were there (often with camera in hand) to show their support. Now, we’re asking fans to dig through your archives for your best pictures of The Derek Trucks Band over the years. Whether on-stage, off-stage, or backstage, we want to see it. Also, feel free to post shots of any/all band members in group or solo shots. The best photo or photos will have a chance to be included within the album packaging for the new dTb live album!
Here's how to participate: we created a new fan photo gallery on DerekTrucks.com, called “dTb Historical Photo Project” – upload your photos there and the band will review them. If your photo is selected, we’ll be contacting you, so make sure your email address is up-to-date in your DerekTrucks.com profile. Start digging through those old photos now – we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
