The Bad Plus has played a holiday series at the Dakota for over two decades. Despite the pandemic, we didn’t want you to miss this popular tradition so we’ve put together an exclusive (two set!) show originally made for the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN in October. This was the first time the trio had played together since mid-January and one of just two times the band has played together since the outbreak. Giving the viewer an on-stage perspective, this beautifully-filmed session at Knoxville’s historic Bijou Theatre will put you at the center of the music by Reid, Orrin and Dave.

Orrin Evans, piano
Reid Anderson, bass
Dave King, drums
