Bela Fleck & The Flecktones were in town on Saturday night with Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers. Bela and Bruce are no strangers to one another, and every once in a while the two bring their bands together for a hand-full of performances. The Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio was one of the lucky cities this summer that got to experience these two world-class musicians collaborate throughout the night. Bela Fleck & The Flecktones opened up the evening for Bruce’s band, but in actuality members from both bands played together throughout the duration of the night. The Flecktones took the stage around 8pm and played for a solid hour. Bruce Hornsby came out during the Flecktone’s set and sat in on Prickly Pear, Falani.
