J. D. Blair and Victor Wooten

Victor Wooten is best known as the monster electric-bass player whose fantastic fret board pyrotechnics helped catapult killer banjo-maverick Bela Fleck and his Flecktones into the national spotlight and Grammy winning popularity.

J.D. Blair, aka “The Groove Regulator,” is a world-class musical chameleon whose drumming and percussion transcends all musical categories. He’s played and/or recorded with contemporary Christian-gospel greats (Yolanda Adams, Take 6), smooth jazz practitioners (Kirk Whalum), funk-masters (Bootsy Collins), soulful indie-rockers (India.Arie), electric-jazz blasters (Mike Stern) and some of country music’s biggest names (Wynonna Judd, Lyle Lovett). However, it was his stint with country-pop superstar Shania Twain that earned him the 2000 Drum! Magazine’s Country Drummer of The Year award.
