Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

The Flecktones are: Future Man, Jeff Coffin, Bela Fleck, and Victor Wooten.. Mostly instrumental, but basicaly unclassifiable.

Béla Fleck has been nominated in more categories than any other musician for Grammy awards, namely country, pop, jazz, bluegrass, classical, folk, and spoken word, as well as composition and arranging. he Has 7 of his own, and two for the flecktones themselves.

they are quite a unique group. bela is considered one of the best banjo pickers around, Victor is considered the best bass player around as well. Jeff plays winds of any flavor, and Future Man is a complete story by himself. he playes a few one of a kind instruments. His main being the synth-axe drunitar. Check his wikipedia page above.

I have lost count how many times I have seen them live, but I am so glad I saw every one. Even going to see them open for DMB. They took a year off in 2005, but I have been lucky enough to see them twice this year, once in KC and Iowa.
