Tedeschi Trucks Band has been on a roll this summer, capitalizing on their Wheels of Soul tour to collaborate with some very special guests on a nightly basis. With North Mississippi Allstars and Los Lobos performing at each show as support, members of both bands – including Luther Dickinson, David Hidalgo and more – continue to find a home within the magic of Tedeschi Trucks Band. Last night’s stop at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, GA took that to a new level, as even more special guests joined in the fray.The first was the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton, who came out for a cover of the blues standard “Spoonful” with Luther Dickinson. Dickinson stayed on stage, and lent his hand to “Leaving Trunk” and “Midnight In Harlem.” Perhaps the biggest surprise was the appearance of Jimmy Herring, as the Widespread Panic guitarist linked up with Tedeschi Trucks for a version of Doyle Bramhall’s song, “I Want More.” The crowd was in utter appreciation of the musical fusion, and the guest appearances weren’t over! David Hidalgo, Cody Dickinson, and Steve Berlin all added their talents to “The Storm” to close the set. Luther Dickinson also rejoined one last time, adding some guitar to the fitting choice cover of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.”With all of that love from the music community, this was surely a great musical experience. Fortunately we can relive it from home, as taper Dillon Fries has provided a full audio recording of the set.

“The greatest thing about her was her elegance and her supportive and encouraging way,” Hastert, 53, said. “People loved her. She was just so nice.” Gregory Mesias lived in Baldwin Park for more than 40 years and worked to develop better parks and recreation services throughout the city. Hastert said Gregory Mesias’ passion for public service began when she was a young girl. “There was a street she’d walk down where she used to live, and she thought it would be safer with a traffic light so she wrote a letter to the city about it and a light was installed,” Hastert said. “That’s when she was only in high school. I think that’s what started her in public service.” Covina resident Laura Brady was friends with Gregory Mesias during her first campaign. BALDWIN PARK – Adelina Gregory Mesias, who was the first female mayor of Baldwin Park, died Wednesday at her home in Temecula. She was 92. Family members said she underwent surgery for breast cancer in February and had been at her home ever since. In 1964, Gregory Mesias was elected to the City Council and in 1971 made local history when she became mayor. She held the position for one year. Donna Hastert, Gregory Mesias’ step-daughter, said she will always remember her mother’s kind heart. “She had the most wonderful personality of anyone you’ve ever met,” said Brady, 82. “We would still send clippings to each other from our newspapers, and she was always very proud to be Baldwin Park’s first female mayor.” Funeral services for Gregory Mesias will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary in Whittier.
