Bela Fleck and Chick Corea Elektric Band Announces Dual Tour for 2017

There isn't a more elite pairing in music than BÉLA FLECK and CHICK COREA, and the two will join forces for a North American tour with their respective groups, The Flecktones & Elektric Band August 5 - 21, 2017.

These shows will feature the original lineups of both bands on a co-headline billing that will be a can't-miss for fans all across the country. And rumor has it the show encore will be a jam for the ages.

BÉLA FLECK & THE FLECKTONES have been a household name for over a three decades. Béla has reunited the original lineup of his band: Wooten brothers Victor (Bass) and Roy, aka Furture Man (Drumitar), as well as Howard Levy (harmonica and keyboard).

The genre-defying CHICK COREA ELEKTRIC BAND has no bounds regarding musical forms or experimentation. Led by one of the premier jazz keyboardists of all time, the Elektric Band delivers an awe-inspiring stage performance that is simply mind-blowing, reaching transcendent height. The entire classic quintet will be on stage: John Patitucci (Bass), Frank Gambale (Guitar), Eric Marienthal (Saxophone), and Dave Weckl (Drums).

The Kurland Agency (thekurlandagency.com) is booking this short three week period in August 2017 enabling fans to see these two titans of American music together for the first time ever!

Tour dates To Be Announced.
