Exclusive Video: Backstage with THE BAD PLUS

By Jim Leija

When the jazz trio The Bad Plus arrived in Ann Arbor last week for their two-set show at the Mendelssohn Theatre, we gave them a Flip Cam and asked them to shoot some backstage video for their fans.  The results are amazing — drummer David King took the lead and hilarious antics ensued.  So, if you didn’t get enough of these amazing, funny, and smart musicians when they were here, check out this video!  (Be sure not to miss the “honey bear” moment around 5:08!) Please beware: adult language ahead.
