with special guest The Bad Plus

Cofrin Family Hall, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts

Since its outset, iconic trio The Bad Plus has dared to be different, challenging all preconceived notions of jazz. Through a provocative style of arrangements and compositions they call “avant-garde populism”, their unique blend of influences, ranging from experimental jazz, indie rock, pop, and classical music has earned this “audacious, rule-breaking jazz trio” (Billboard) a reputation as one of the most universally well-respected bands in jazz today. The Bad Plus is the featured guest artist for UW-Green Bay’s historic Jazz Fest 49.

UW-Green Bay Jazz Fest, now in its 49th year, is a celebration of all things jazz, one of America’s great art forms. One of the oldest of its kind in Wisconsin, Jazz Fest encompasses a full day of student performances, clinics and master classes.
