On Friday, December 12 WYCE will present its last of four concerts hosted by the Wealthy Theatre as part of the Live at Wealthy Theatre Concert Series. The Bad Plus will take the stage at 8:00 p.m. that night, with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on the Wealthy Theatre website.

WYCE Station Manager AJ Paschka says the concert will be a great fit for dates or holiday celebrations with friends and family.

"The Bad Plus is a group that performs at a high level of technical skill and can successfully execute the toughest of jazz compositions," says Paschka. "What makes them different is their taste in music and their ability to be accessible to audiences. They have been known to rework populist composers from Aphex Twin to Nirvana into incredible works of jazz beauty. I think this concert will be accessible to everyone and leave no one left behind with their natural virtuosity and deft musicianship."

The band is composed of bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King, with a reputation or pushing limits.

The past 15 years have seen the genre-smashing band create a distinctive and original repertoire of inventive and exciting original music, according to Sony Music Masterworks.

In conjunction with listener supported radio, Orion Construction and the Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse both present the jazz trio with support from Peaches B&B and Brewery Vivant

Proceeds from the event will go to support Pets for Vets West Michigan. Tickets can be purchased online or at the box office.
