VICTOR WOOTEN AND THE WOOTEN BROTHERS Expand Tour; Share Music Video for New Single, "SWEAT," Out Tomorrow

Article Contributed by Victory Lap PR | Published on Thursday, September 28, 2023

Illustrious family outfit The Wooten Brothers are poised to reassemble for an extensive musical voyage, bringing their larger-than-life funk and soul-driven production to dozens of cities across much of the continental United States. The highly anticipated reunion tour commences today in Chattanooga, where the group will debut the titular single from their forthcoming studio album, Sweat, due for release in 2024. Watch the music video for “Sweat” below and enjoy an early listen of the highly danceable number before its arrival on digital streaming platforms tomorrow.

The Wooten Brothers’ star-studded lineup features five-time GRAMMY-winning bassist, songwriter, and author Victor Wooten alongside Joseph (keyboards/vocals), Roy “Futureman” (percussion/vocals), and Regi (guitars/vocals) Wooten in their most perceptive, harmonious, and dynamic form. Widely regarded as one of the most decorated collaborative ensembles in recent history, The Wooten Brothers have fortified their own breed of high-octane sonic expression that is as distinct and inimitable as it is approachable. Making their way through the southeast this fall, the spectacular Wootens have announced a string of West Coast tour dates, with appearances in Denver, Los Angeles, Seattle, and many more confirmed in January. See below for a list of all upcoming tour dates.

Lauded by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 10 Bassists of All Time,” Victor Wooten has captivated audiences for over four decades with his dynamic stage presence and unparalleled technical chops. Wooten’s eclectic repertoire includes collaborations with the likes of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones (of which he is a founding member), Chick Corea, Dave Matthews Band, India Arie, Keb’ Mo’, and more recently, Cory Wong. Hailed as one of the greatest living bassists today, Wooten continues to share his passion for music through numerous modalities. The multidisciplinary artist has authored two books and has mentored thousands of students at his own Center for Music and Nature since the year 2000.

Remarkably accomplished in their own right, each of the Wooten brothers bring a unique flavor to the live experience. Joseph Wooten, also known as the “Hands of Soul,” has been the keyboardist/vocalist for the Steve Miller Band since 1993 and is a renowned composer, arranger, author, and motivational speaker whose collaborations include work with Whitney Houston and George Clinton. Roy “Futureman” Wooten is also a founding member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones and a five-time GRAMMY award winner who is famously known for his trademark inventions the “Drumitar” and the “RoyEI” keyboard. A philosopher, researcher, filmmaker, and educator, Roy’s impressive solo career, symphonic works, and “Black Mozart” projects span the genres of classical, jazz, soul, gospel, and spoken word. Regi Wooten’s signature guitar style of chording, slapping, tapping and virtuosic strumming has earned him worldwide notoriety and comparisons to Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Chuck Berry. In recent years, Regi has performed with many artists including the legendary Ginger Baker. Known worldwide as “The Teacha,” Regi currently teaches music in Nashville, TN and has taught many notable musicians.

Together The Wooten Brothers bring an uncanny level of experience, originality and expertise to the stage. Playing together since childhood, the formidable group has shared stages with the likes of Curtis Mayfield, The Temptations, Ramsey Lewis, Stephanie Mills, War, and others. Fans can expect an infectious, colorful, and exuberant production that showcases The Wooten Brothers’ impenetrable creative chemistry. An amalgam of original songs and choice classics, each show offers a one-of-a-kind adventure that defies the bounds of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, and bluegrass.

On the new single and forthcoming full length record, Victor shares, “In the mid-80s, we released an album for Arista Records under the name The Wootens; but that record sounded more like the producer than it did us. For the first time since then, we are releasing an album that is totally us brothers. Get ready to SWEAT!”
