The San Jacinto College Audio Engineering Organization and the San Jacinto College Foundation are proud to present the Victor Wooten Band in concert, featuring five-time Grammy®-winning musician Victor Wooten, best known for his work with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Stanley Clarke, Dave Matthews and more.
The concert will be held in the Slocomb Auditorium on the San Jacinto College Central campus, October 2 at 8:00 pm, and will be hosted by Professor Shelly Berg, the Dean of the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Brittany Williams Scholarship Fund, which pays tuition for audio engineering students. All tickets purchased in advance through BrownPaperTickets.com are reserved seating, $30 each (with the option of making an additional donation to the Brittany Williams Scholarship Fund). Tickets purchased at the door will be $35 each.
On this tour, Krystal Peterson, a young singing sensation from Cincinnati, is making her first appearance with the Victor Wooten band. Also joining Wooten are long time cohorts J. D. Blair, Derico Watson, Anthony Wellington, Steve Bailey, and Dave Welsch.
Each musician will multitask (actually switching instruments mid-song) resulting in a part choreographed and part improvised display of musicianship and showmanship at its best. Instruments include: bass, acoustic bass, drums, keyboards, trumpet, trombone, cello, percussion, vocals, and more.
Wooten comments, “Like the new records, I’ll make a slight departure from previous bands. This time around, I’ll be featuring a unique mixture of multi-instrumentalists. Fans can expect high energy, world-class musicianship, and as always, things they’ve never seen or heard before. The show will consist of mostly new music from my upcoming 2 new CD’S, but will also feature songs from my earlier releases, as well as original music from members of the band, including selections from 2012?, J.D.Blair’s new CD, which was just released on VIX Records.”
