The Atlantis Quartet hasn’t performed at the Dakota in a few years but we’re back Wednesday Feb. 5th. This band has never sounded better and we’d love to see you there.

Atlantis Quartet is at the forefront of the twin cities modern jazz scene. JazzTimes calls the band “startlingly original” and both the City Pages and Star Tribune have named them Best Twin Cities Jazz Artist (2011, 2012). In 2015, the group was awarded the McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians. Featuring four of Minnesota’s most exciting improvisors and composers, Atlantis Quartet is a band whose music “defies labels” (MPR).

There’s another very cool show happening on Saturday Feb. 8th at the Icehouse. Dave King, Erik Fratzke and myself will be performing Chris Morrissey’s beautiful music where he’ll be playing and singing. IMHO, this is a can’t miss show and we’ll be doing one long set starting around 10pmish.

Chris Morrissey moved to New York from Minnesota in 2009. In the ensuing decade, he released 4 of his own records, joined the bands of Jim Campilongo and Mark Guiliana and served as music director for Sara Bareilles, Sharon Van Etten and Trixie Whitley.
He is a sometimes-member of Chris Thile’s Live From Here house band, teaches at The New School and tours the globe extensively.
Since leaving, Chris maintained close ties with the Minnesota music community, and is overjoyed to present some of his newest music with some of his oldest friends.
