The Victor Wooten Trio, featuring GRAMMY award-winning bass player and composer Victor Wooten with legendary drummer Dennis Chambers and renowned saxophonist Bob Franceschini, will be in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
The youngest of five boys, Wooten began learning to play music at the tender age of two. He started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age five and at age six was on tour with The Wooten Brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. Taught how to play the bass guitar by his oldest brother Regi, Victor still credits all of his brothers as his greatest musical influences.
Wooten is a five-time GRAMMY winner, founding member of the GRAMMY award-winning band Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, the only multiple winner of Bass Player Magazine’s reader’s poll (three times), voted one of the top ten bassists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, and has won just about every award awarded to a bassist.
Dennis Chambers, an American drummer who began drumming a the age of four, was gigging in Baltimore-area nightclubs by the age of six. In 1978 (at age 18), he joined Parliament/Funkadelic, and stayed with them until 1985. In 1986, he joined the John Scofield band. Since then, he has played with most of the major figures in jazz fusion music. Despite a lack of formal training, Chambers has become well known among drummers for his technique and speed.
Saxophonist, songwriter, and arranger Bob Franceschini has appeared on more than 200 albums for artists of many idioms including Mike Stern, Paul Simon, Willie Colon, Celine Dion, Bebe Winans, Tito Puente, Tower of Power, Victor Wooten, and Tom Browne. In addition to composing and arranging, Bob has performed as a touring musician with Mike Stern, The Yellow Jackets, Chaka Khan, Victor Wooten, George Benson, Paul Simon, Eddie Palmieri, Tom Browne, Willie Colón, and many others.
