BlueSky Jazz Hartland presents:

Dave King Trio & Rodney Dangerfield Stand-Up

The Dave King Trio & Rodney Dangerfield Stand-Up



Join us on Monday December 17th for a evening with the Dave King Trio at the BlueSky Jazz Center. Perhaps you know Dave King as the drummer in The Bad Plus, or any number of avant-improv/indie-rock/Americana/electronic experimental bands rooted in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. But somewhere in that mix is a deep fondness for the jazz tradition. The Dave King Trio, featuring a rhythm section of pianist Matt Mitchell and bassist Billy Peterson, investigates jazz standards with a modern interpretation.

Also on this night will be a special Rodney Dangerfield stand-up routine.

This is a Fundraiser for BlueSky Jazz. This is an invitation only event. If you would like to be considered for the event, please fill out the easy form. Donations are welcomed on arrival of event!
