The 2004 Ottawa Jazz Festival main stage performance of Bela Fleck and The Flecktones drew what may have been the largest audience of the jazz festival that year.

On Saturday July 2, Bela Fleck and The Flecktones returns to the Ottawa Jazz Festival's main stage - 7 years later, almost to the hour. Three of the four members who appeared in 2004 will again play this year, in the group's "original line-up":

  • Bela Fleck – leader, banjo
  • Victor Wooten – bass
  • Roy Futureman Wooten – percussion, drums

Howard Levy (piano, harmonica), who will play on Saturday, was replaced by Jeff Coffin on tenor sax in 2004.
