Bela Fleck & The Flecktones Original Lineup Coming to San Diego
Bela Fleck & The Flecktones are playing four-yes, four!!- shows this Tuesday and Wednesday at Anthology. They are performing with the original lineup which includes Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten, Roy "Future Man" Wooten and Howard Levy. Individually they are some of the best musicians for their respective instruments. Bela Fleck is one of the best banjo players ever (if you google best banjo player his wiki page is the first result), Victor Wooten in my mind and many others is the best bass player in the world, and Future Man created his own instrument which incorporates both guitar and drums. For the past decade Jeff Coffin has been the fourth member on saxophone, however this is the original line up with Howard Levy mixing things up by playing piano and harmonica. Together they push each other to create an unbelievable fusion of bluegrass and jazz. Tickets are going fast and some of the seating is sold out so make sure to get your tickets asap.
