Béla Fleck & The Flecktones at UBby jmaloni
Béla Fleck & The Flecktones return to the University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts, this time with the original line-up. They are touring in support of their new album, "Rocket Science." The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3.
For the first time since 1991, pianist/ harmonica player Howard Levy has returned to the fold alongside bassist Victor Wooten, percussionist/Drumitarist Roy "Futureman" Wooten and banjoist bandleader Fleck to create some of the most forward-thinking music of their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play - from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances - the result is an impossible-to-pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable.
Tickets are $42/$37 general admission and $32 for students (any school), and go on sale Monday, June 6, at 10 a.m. at the Center Box Office, Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.com. Charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
