His first one was after he graduated from high school, called Tasty Licks. With them, he recorded two albums. Subsequently, he busked with bassist Mark Schatz. In 1981, he became a part of Spectrum, with guitarist Glen Lawson and mandolinist Jimmy Gaudreau. That same year, he started performing with New Grass Revival and continued for nine years. In 1988, he formed Béla Fleck and the Flecktones with Victor Wooten. In the following years, he collaborated more with many artists. Because of this, he is the only person nominated for the Grammys in multiple categories, namely country, pop, jazz, bluegrass, classical, folk, spoken word, composition, and arranging. All in all, he brought home 15 Grammy gramophone trophies. Sharing many with the artists he worked with, such as Asleep at the Wheel, Alison Brown, Abigail Washburn (his wife), and Edgar Meyer.

Among the band members are Chris Thile on mandolin, Gabe Witcher on fiddle/violin, Noam Pikelny on banjo, Chris Eldridge on guitar, and Paul Kowert on bass.
