PREVIEW: Bela Fleck and the Flecktones @ House of Blues, NOLA 10/11/11

WHY: The Original lineup of the Flecktones reformed recently for the first time in nearly two decades, putting out the band’s first album of new material in six years with Rocket Science. Piano/harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy (aka “The Man With Two Brains”) steps back into the band, filling the void left by sax man Jeff Coffin, who has had his hands-full on the road as a full-time touring member of the Dave Matthews Band.
