Together now for more than a decade, bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King -- otherwise known as the Bad Plus -- are famed for their fearless mix of improvisational jazz with an indie-rock ethos. They're also known for their adventurous reworkings of pop, classical and even country tunes ranging from Ornette Coleman to Black Sabbath to Nirvana. Their most recent album, Never Stop, consists of entirely new originals and covers a range of musical styles from swing to '80s techno. Learn More
There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue. I don't recall the cost sadly (average for the area I think), but I will say it was very well guarded and if you do us it, remember to take your ticket with you as it is your key for elevator use! Also Parking technically begins on the 3rd level.Dirty Bourbon River Show travel • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred

12 piece band! Each of them a great musician and performer. I really enjoyed hearing them play Steely Dan, and afterwards spoke a bit with one of the dingers, very friendly, no attitude. A nice venue, too, not stadium seating but individual tables on a gently sloping floor so all had a good view.

The concert was just so-so. A few of the songs were performed very well and I enjoyed those. The rest were mediocre as was the concert in general. The lead singer needs to get his hands out of his pockets and be more approachable to the audience.
Quotes & Highlights
Based in Seattle Washington, Nearly Dan is made up of 14 local and national musicians who share a passion for the distinctive music of Steely Dan — revered for inventive music-making, jazz-infected lush harmonies and their own lyrical color.
The individual Nearly Dan members come from across genres — from rock, R&B and country to fusion, swing and jazz — and have received training at institutions from Berklee College of Music in Boston, to University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
Endorsed by the company they keep, this group’s musicians have performed with greats such as Ray Charles, George Benson, Diane Schuur, Lou Rawls, Basia, Huey Lewis, Tower Of Power, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Tito Puente, Natalie Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Gladys Knight, Julio Iglesias, and Roberta Flack.
Perhaps the best part of this band is that it doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Anyone who knows the music of Steely Dan, also knows that only fabulous musicians can pull it off! A challenge this group is energized by, and rises to!
