Victor Wooten (click for more info)
WYCE and Calvin College present Victor Wooten and JD Blair in concert. "The Funktopus" is the self-appointed nickname of maniacal bassist Victor Wooten. Using his thumb the way a guitarist uses a pick, Wooten's mile-a-minute string-popping and dance-floor throbbing often sounds like the product of eight slithering arms. Wooten will be accompanied by longtime collaborator JD Blair, a funky drummer in his own right. Victor Wooten and JD Blair perform on Saturday, March 14th at 8pm at Calvin's Fine Arts Center.
