Victor Wooten is known as a founding member of the Grammy Award-winning band Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, a three-time winner of Bass Player magazine’s reader’s poll, and one of the top ten bassists of all time, according to Rolling Stone. But this only represents a portion of who Victor Wooten really is.
Currently, Wooten is a published author, an acclaimed teacher, a nonprofit administrator, an entrepreneur, and a naturalist who enjoys teaching. Victor and his wife recently purchased nearly 150 acres of land near Nashville, TN and built a retreat center with the sole purpose of helping children and adults improve their lives. In order to be in complete control of his own music, Wooten later formed the VIX Records label. He also continues to record and perform with artists such as Béla Fleck, Chick Corea, the Dave Matthews Band, SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten), and his brothers, as well as with the Victor Wooten Band.
Dennis Chambers began drumming at age four and was gigging in Baltimore-area nightclubs by age six. Chambers has become well known among drummers for his technique and speed. He is particularly regarded for his ability to play “in the pocket,” but he can also stretch far out of the pocket, a hallmark of his technique. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He plays in a wide variety of musical genres but is perhaps most notable for his jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music performances. He is known for his fast hands and triplets on the bass drum.
Saxophonist, songwriter, and arranger Bob Franceschini has appeared on more than 200 albums for artists of many idioms, including Mike Stern, Paul Simon, Willie Colon, Céline Dion, Bebe Winans, Tito Puente, Tower of Power, Victor Wooten, and Tom Browne. In addition to composing and arranging, Bob has performed as a touring musician with Mike Stern, the Yellow Jackets, Chaka Khan, Victor Wooten, George Benson, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Tom Browne, Willie Colón, and many others.
Join us for a jazzy, funky evening! Doors open at 7:30pm. There is no opening act for this show.
