Victor Wooten Trio featuring Dennis Chambers & Bob Franceschini

Bassist Victor Wooten began his musical story early in life, performing in nightclubs and theaters with the family band at age five, and going on tour with his brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield a year later. Before graduating high school, he and his brothers had shared the stage with artists such as Stephanie Mills, War, Ramsey Lewis, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Dexter Wansel, and The Temptations. But this only begins to tell the tale of this Tennessee titan.


Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours, and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine's readers poll three times (the only person to win it more than once.) In 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassists of ALL TIME. Wooten has been called the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius; a master innovator of the bass guitar, gifted composer, arranger, producer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, Wooten is now joined on the road by the legendary drummer Dennis Chambers (Parliament/Funkadelic) and saxophonist Bob Franceschini for an unforgettable performance.
