Bela Fleck and the Flecktones on Direct TV.

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Bassin', Jan 20, 2002.

  1. Any of you who have Direct TV, I just thought I'd let you know there playing Bela Fleck and the Flecktones as the free weekend concert. You may have seen the Willie Nelson advertisements, well Bela Feck is the other concert they didn't advertise.

    I just checked it out yesterday and it's something to behold. Victor Wooten does his Amazing Grace bass solo and a few other things that are nothing short of incredible. It's a must see for any serious bass player.:) ;)

    Yeah I saw it. It is a great concert. I like how they had many different players on it. Like a basson and oboe, and the guy playing the little drums (sorry I don't know what they are called).

    Same here. Watched it. Taped it. Watched it. Watched it. Watched it with my girl. Watched it.
  7. I think my wife got us tickets to see the "Greatest show on Earth", as a Valentines gift. They are at the Scranton Cultural Center the end of February.

    I Hope!!!!:confused:

    Same here. Just received my tickets in the mail the other day. Vic's coming to The Vogue in Indianapolis around the beginning of February and I plan on being there. Cant frickin wait.

  10. Yeah, that's why I posted the thread. It seems they did absolutely zero advertising for it on Direct TV. I just happened to be checking that channel out to see if they were playing anything other than the Willie Nelson concert and saw it there.
