There's no doubt about it -- when it comes to bass guitar, Victor Wooten is king of his world.
The virtuoso and his band performed Tuesday night for a sold-out crowd at the Cat's Cradle, and they were impressive beyond all expectations.
Wooten, the incredible bassist most well-known for his involvement with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, was surrounded by friends and family on stage. His oldest brother, Regi Wooten, played the electric guitar. Nicknamed the Teacher, Regi taught the younger boy bass when Victor was just 2 years old.
Joseph Wooten, the keyboardist, has a fitting nickname as well -- Hands of Soul. However, he was introduced as Explosive Joseph for this show. JD Blair is the sole member of the band outside of the Wooten bloodline. As the drummer for the group, he is known as the Groove Regulator.
