Tim Lefebvre Leaves the Tedeschi Trucks Band
Tim Lefebvre has stepped down from the bass position in the Tedeschi Trucks Band, the group has announced. The bassist, who has also worked with artists from David Bowie to Elvis Costello, is moving on so he can work on more projects.
“After 5 great years with the band, Tim Lefebvre will be moving on,” the band wrote on Facebook. “The intense TTB tour schedule leaves little time for other gigs and Tim feels like it’s time to free up his schedule so he can spend more time producing and playing on a variety of different projects. We enjoyed a terrific musical camaraderie with Tim, and as the band continues to evolve we wish him the best.”
Lefebvre confirmed the news on Christmas via Facebook, as well. “Folks, the rumors are true. Eternally grateful to the [Tedeschi Trucks] family for a great 5 years. Onward! Happy holidays to you all and best wishes for 2019.”
The band welcomed bassist Brandon Boone to fill in for their upcoming tour in January and February. Boone has previously worked with musicians closely linked to the Tedeschi Trucks Band including Jimmy Herring, Yonrico Scott, and current TTB saxophonist Kebbi Williams.
