Snarky Puppy Live

12/05/2014

SNARKY PUPPY is truly a different kind of musical animal.
Their new album ‘We Like It Here” went straight to no.1 internationally on the iTunes charts in March 2014.

The once Texan, now New York-based quasi-collective has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music worldwide.
The band has always used live performance as its chief form of evangelism, and maintains a more intense tour schedule than almost any band in the idiom. Over the course of 2013, Snarky Puppy gave almost 200 performances and workshops on four continents, including North Sea Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz á Vienne, Blue Note Tokyo, and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
Snarky Puppy seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with sonic and conceptual innovation in a way that is able to reach the most critical- or most carefree- audience. The band is a convergence of musicians from white and black America who also perform regularly with artists like Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Kirk Franklin, Justin Timberlake, Roy Hargrove, and Marcus Miller among others.
The group is led by award-winning bassist/guitarist/composer/arranger Michael League, whose creative grass roots approach to a tougher-than-ever industry has created a new model for independent artists. The band has made a strong commitment to spreading their love of music and general positivity to a young generation looking for something real to be inspired by.
