From 2009 – 2013, Trucks spent 4 years under the instruction of southern music legend Col. Bruce Hampton. Col. Hampton, known for his ability to transform young musicians, emphasized a selfless, minimalist approach to group improvisation. This training transformed Trucks’ drumming. In 2014, Duane joined jam band juggernaut Widespread Panic. Formed in 1986 in Athens, Ga, Widespread Panic and their dedicated fan base have consistently sold out venues across the country and are one of Billboards highest grossing bands of all time. Widely renowned for their live performances, they have held the record for number of sold out performances at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Ga and the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, Co.. Trucks has appeared on one studio album, Street Dogs (2015), and one live album, Sunday Show (2020). Known for his powerful, dynamic and propulsive drumming, Trucks has become a highly sought after drummer. Over the last ten years, Duane has shared the stage or studio with Alex Maas of The Black Angels, Billy Strings, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, & Phil Lesh of The Grateful Dead, Branford Marsalis, Carlos Santana, Chuck Leavell, Don Was, Gov’t Mule, John Mayer, Jimmy Cliff, Kamasi Washington, Margo Price, Mike Mills & Peter Buck of R.E.M., Ryan Knight of The Black Dahlia Murder, Sturgill Simpson, Steve Kimock, & Umphrey’s McGee.
