As the bassist of the world-acclaimed roots-fusion quartet Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Victor Wooten has stretched the boundaries of his instrument – freeing it from traditional timekeeping roles and bringing it to new levels of virtuosity while never abandoning the groove. This solo tour is a rare opportunity to witness his unique brand of hard-edged, gutbucket funk, which he mixes with jazz, R&B, and rock influences into an ecstatically danceable brew.
In concert, Wooten and his crack band (which features his brothers Reggie and Josef Wooten) are quickly becoming legendary among funk, jamband, and R&B fans for their funk-fueled improvisations and overjoyed onstage intensity. In addition to his jazzy chord progressions, hip-hop beats, funky-soul riffs, and finger-busting solos, Wooten provides an ecstatic and memorable concert experience, complete with audience interactions, sing-a-longs, and mind-blowing magic tricks (Can you say levitation?).
A Victor Wooten Band performance can produce enough heat to power a fluorescent billboard, and enough sweat to carve a small river into the dance floor... if doubts persist, pop in his latest release, Live in America – a powerful document of his smoldering live shows – and try to stop your feet moving to the groove.
