Five-time Grammy Award winner Victor Wooten has been heralded as “the Michael Jordan of the bass” and “one of the most fearless musicians on the planet.” He and his brothers — performing as The Wooten Brothers — play a show at Pearl Street Warehouse on Sunday, April 2.
Victor’s talent has led to invitations to record and perform with such luminaries as Bootsy Collins, Branford Marsalis, Keb Mo, Chic Corea, The Dave Matthews Band, and the legendary Moroccan group Nass El Ghiwane, to name just a few. He is also a founding member of the super-group Béla Fleck and the Flecktones.
Roy “Futureman” Wooten is also a founding member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones Victor (bass) is joined by Roy (percussion) and brothers Joseph (keys) and Regi (guitar) for the concert at Pearl Street Warehouse!

For over four decades, The Wooten Brothers have been recognized as some of the most innovative musicians in existence and are collectively known as one of the most talented and dynamic band of brothers the world has ever known. Since they were young, the five brothers (Rudy, a saxophonist, sadly passed away in 2010) have been a musical tour-de-force redefining the limits of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, and bluegrass. Sons of military parents, the boys early years were spent living in Hawaii, California, and Virginia — where they shared the stages with the likes of Curtis Mayfield, The Temptations, and many others. In the mid-1980s, the brothers released an album as The Wootens for Clive Davis’ Arista Records.
