Anyone else going? I'll be heading to L town right after work to play a round at Centennial before the show...

- If you're wondering who Victor Wooten is...

Seen him twice solo, and once with Bela Fleck.  Easily worth the price of admission.

Victor Wooten is amazing.  Does things on the bass that are not possible by most others.  Only other bassist I have seen in his league is Oteil Burbridge.  I will have to look around and catch him if Vic hits Phoenix.
Put down your shiny new speedy driver and learn to throw the Roc!

My nephew-by-marriage went to HS with Victor.  Said he was pegged in 9th grade as one who would do many wonderful musical things!  They knew some things then!

Nice. Victor is/was awesome. He was doing his two minds one groove tour with JD Blair. I drove to STL to see this tour back in May (I think) when they were first getting back on the road.

Victor is great. Bass player from my band went to his Woo-camps and has idolized him for a long time.

Backstage at Waka 06:



I've seen him perform in a bunch of different settings, but the best I've ever seen was his Soul Circus tour a few years ago. WOW.
