Nice to see you're setting the bar high. You've never heard of them so of course they can't be worthy of the Hall of Fame even though despite the name, the criteria is "influence and innovation" and not fame. I'm not saying they are worthy but were you serious when you posted that?

Anyways, I'll help you out (From wikipedia):
"Béla Fleck and the Flecktones is a primarily instrumental group from the United States, that draws equally on bluegrass, fusion and jazz, sometimes dubbed "blu-bop". The band formed in 1988, initially to perform once on the PBS series Lonesome Pine Specials. The Flecktones have toured extensively since then, often playing over 200 concerts per year. Each of the current members of the quartet has released at least one solo album. The band's name is a play on the name of the 1960s rock band Dick Dale and the Del-Tones."

Now you know
