Flecktones anyone?

Béla Fleck & the Flecktones were musical guests on last night’s (11/14) episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing in support of their new album, Rocket Science. additionally, Béla sat in with the show’s band thoughout.

During the program, they played Life In 11 from the record, with the “official” line up of Fleck on banjo, Howard Levy on piano/harmonica and the irrepressible Wooten Brothers – Victor on bass and Roy (Future Man) on digital hand percussion.

NBC also shot a web exclusive of the ‘Tones jamming on Where The River Meets The Sea, with de facto 5th Flecktone Casey Driessen on fiddle.
