      The Wooten Brothers  

    Victor Wooten

    Victor Wooten and his brothers Regi, Rudy, Roy, and Joseph, had a band known as The Wooten Brothers since Victor was 5.  The brothers attended Denbigh High School in Newport News, VA.  They were a phenomenal band which toured locally and nationally, working with artists such as Curtis Mayfield and acts like War.

    Victor is often cited as one of, if not the, best bass player in the world.  Bass Player magazine awarded him the title, 3 years in a row.  Wooten won two Nashville Music Awards for Bassist Of The Year.  He has recorded and performed with a wide variety of artists like Branford Marsalis, Mike Stern, Bruce Hornsby, Chick Corea, Dave Matthews, Prince, Gov’t Mule, Susan Tedeschi, Vital Tech Tones (with Scott Henderson and Steve Smith), the Jaco Pastorius Word Of Mouth Big Band, and the soundtrack of the Disney film Country Bears.

    He is also known for his role as a founding member of Bela Fleck & The Flecktones.

    “Wooten utilizes one of the most unique and complex approaches ever devised in the electric bass guitar's short history. He visualizes his thumb as a pick and through a series of rapid-fire up-and-down strokes, uses it to punch out some of the most intricate and eloquent sounds ever heard from the instrument. By comparison, most bassists only hit strings on the downstroke. Wooten's technique enables him to perform solo on his bass exactly the same way a guitarist would—with all of the same flexibility, subtlety, warmth and lyricism.”

     --Anil Prasad--

    In 2008, Wooten joined other bass legends, Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller, to form SMV.
