These remembrances will be shared as part of our day-long celebration on the 100th Birthday of the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald, Tuesday, April 25, 2017, as we kick off our Spring 2017 Membership Campaign.|

|Mark your calendars because The Bad Plus will hit the Music Box stage, Monday, May 1st at 8PM! The Bad Plus is a collective made up of bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King. All three are from the Midwest and they have known each other since their teens. Nonetheless, with the exception of one unimpressive meeting in 1990, it is only after spending their formative 20s apart -- King as a session player in Los Angeles, Iverson as the musical director for the Mark Morris Dance Group, Anderson as a prominent up-and-coming player on the New York jazz scene -- that they reunited in late 2000 to play a weekend club date in Minneapolis. The chemistry was immediate and obvious. They planned a second gig and a one-day recording session for the indie jazz label Fresh Sound and The Bad Plus was born! To purchase tickets, click here! |
