Bassist Victor Wooten will lead a run of Fun & Funk Xplosion tour dates this spring with members of his family and a special guest, comedian Sinbad.
Along with Wooten and Sinbad, who is billed as handling “percussion, comedy and who know what else, the tour will feature guitarist Regi Wooten, drummer Roy “Futureman” Wooten and saxophone player Bob Franceschini, plus keyboardist Joseph Wooten on select dates.
“Rejoining with my brothers is always like a family reunion,” Victor says in a press release. “They’re my original teachers. The tour with Sinbad will be crazy fun. We all know he’s funny, but most don’t realize how musical he is. He’s also a historian. This show is gonna be funky and funny, enjoyable and educational. I wouldn’t miss is if I were you.”
The tour kicks off April 24 in Cincinnati, OH, and runs through early May, closing out with an Atlanta show on May 5 after hitting stops in Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee and Florida. A run of shows at New York’s Blue Note will follow in June. See the dates below.
