PASADENA, Texas – Five-time Grammy award winner, Victor Wooten, will return to San Jacinto College to present Bass Extremes, a collaboration with Steve Bailey, on Oct. 21 in Slocomb Auditorium.

This exclusive performance will also feature Derico Watson on drums. The concert begins at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

Wooten and Bailey formed Bass Extremes in 1993. Bailey is a pioneer of the six-string bass, having shared the stage with Jethro Tull, Willie Nelson, Ray Price, Billy Joe Shaver, and more. Wooten has performed with  such artists as The Dave Matthews Band, Prince, India Arie, Bruce Hornsby, and Chick Corea. He is also a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and recently formed his own record label, Vix Records.

Voted Bassist of the Year three times by Bass Player Magazine, Wooten also lends his talent toward music education through giving lectures, workshops, and hosting camps.

This event is sponsored by the San Jacinto College Foundation and the Audio Engineering Organization. All proceeds will go to the Brittany Williams Scholarship Fund, which pays tuition for audio engineering students. Last year's Wooten concert raised $16,000 for the College's scholarship fund. This year's goal is to endow the fund.

Tickets for the Bass Extremes performance are $25 for advanced purchase and $30 at the door on the day of the show. Students may purchase their tickets for $10 through bassextremes.brownpapertickets.com. San Jacinto College Central Campus is located at 8060 Spencer Highway in Pasadena, Texas.
