Béla Fleck & The Flecktones started out in 1988 when Béla put the band together for a TV show called The Lonesome Pine Specials. 30 years later, the original lineup is heading out on the road for 13 shows this Summer.
"The Flecktones is my dream come true. I imagined something unique, and then it came to life before my eyes - materialized by these incredible musicians, who appeared pretty much out of nowhere. There are so many things I love about this band, but one of the biggest things for me is that each of us regard each other member as a teacher. Each person has information that the other three does not possess and that constant learning from each other and the circle of inspiration has gone on for 30 years now, and could go on forever..." - Béla Fleck
They'll be starting the tour with a special "secret show" in Cleveland, OH where fans will be able to catch a little of The Flecktones' last rehearsal.
