The Bad Plus: Live Stream
Friday, October 9, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$15
The Bad Plus — the innovative and virtuosic jazz trio comprised of bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Orrin Evans, and drummer Dave King — will perform a live concert streamed from the historic Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN, on Friday, October 9 at 8pm eastern. This show marks their first performance together since the pandemic stymied live events.
The Bad Plus came together at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy categorization ever since, winning critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with their creativity, unique sound and flair for live performance. The intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect sync.
The band consists of Reid Anderson (bass), Orrin Evans (piano) and Dave King (drums) — a group of passionate collaborators with no single “leader.”
The Bad Plus made a memorable appearance in 2015 at the Big Ears Festival in the Bijou Theatre with their audacious and acclaimed project: ‘On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring’
