Joe Dart is becoming one of the preeminent bassists on the scene, with his punchy bass lines serving as the backbone for the funk-rock collective Vulfpeck and its offshoot project Fearless Flyers.

It also just so happens today, April 18th, is Joe Dart’s birthday, and we’re so happy to celebrate another trip around the sun for the talented musician. To celebrate, we’re throwing it back to the inaugural year of Fool’s Paradise in 2016, when Vulfpeck laid down two incredible sets during their first-ever festival performances. Throughout the weekend, the group had a bunch of special guests sit in, and Vulfpeck more or less stole the festival spotlight.
