Exactly 20 years ago, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones first appeared at the then-Luther Burbank Center as the hottest new thing in mainstream jazz. If the music didn’t blow people’s minds, the group at least had an ace-in-the-hole with slap-happy bassist Victor Wooten, who midway through the show performed a backflip while playing. Of course, the group has returned to the same venue countless times since, won multiple Grammy awards, found success with multiple solo albums and recorded a holiday record, Jingle All the Way, which it’ll pull generously from on Wednesday, Dec. 15, at the Wells Fargo Center, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $40–$55. 8pm. 707.546.3600.
