Bass Extremes—Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten at Festival Miami at UM Gusman Concert Hall
Dive into a high-energy concert by Bass Extremes that pushes the limits of the bass in an incredible fusion of funk, jazz, rock and reggae. Bassist Steve Bailey, who will be honored at the concert as the 2014 Frost Distinguished Alumnus, is known for his three-fingered bass technique and his awe-inspiring command of harmonics and chords. He has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, Jethro Tull, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, to name a few. Bassist Victor Wooten has been called “the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius.” He is a founding member of Béla Fleck & The Flecktones and is a five-time Grammy Award winner. Wooten is known for his incredible funk grooves, unimaginably fast thumb and two-handed tapping techniques. Drummer Derico Watson, one of the hottest musicians on the scene today, adds his fire to the mix.
