For the First time in Europe! The only concert in the Baltics!
Recognized as one of the greatest living bassist today, 5-time Grammy winner, 12-time Grammy nominee Victor Wooten brings his brothers together to the concert halls all over Europe. Their busy independent schedules mean that it’s a tricky matter to catch them together on the same stage, so don't miss! For over four decades the Wooten clan's brothers have been recognized as some of the most innovative musicians in existence and are collectively known as one of the most talented and dynamic band of brothers the world has ever known. Since they were young, then five brothers have been a musical tour-de-force redefining the limits of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, and bluegrass. This will be the brother’s second tour together as a band since the untimely death of their saxophone-playing brother Rudy. Together The Wooten Brothers bring an uncanny level of experience, originality, and musical expertise to the stage. Their shows will be a high-energy, super-funky, artistic blend of styles including original songs and classics.
