We went to see Victor Wooten and Bela Fleck last night at IAA.  We only stayed for half the concert as we didn’t get any sleep due to the storm, but the first half was very enjoyable.  I was impressed with Jeff Coffin and Future Man (Roy Wooten, Vic’s brother).  Jeff played the tenor and alto AT THE SAME TIME and Future Man rocked out the night on his hand-held midi drum kit while sporting a pirate hat.  Picture Captain Jack Sparrow dancing around stage with a carpet-covered electric guitar.

Vic did some incredible solo work which left people gasping in amazement and with joy (including us).  And then Vic and Bela did a call and response that was funny and fantastic.

Next week: Leo Kottke!
