Everyone please welcome Snarky Puppy!
Snarky Puppy is a collective of musicians formed in Texas but currently based in NYC. From their website:
The last four years have brought dramatic changes for Snarky Puppy.
After a decade of relentless touring and recording in all but complete obscurity, the Texas-bred/New York-based quasi-collective suddenly found itself held up by the press and public as one of the major figures in the jazz world. But as the category names for all three of the band’s Grammy® awards would indicate (Best R&B Performance in 2014, Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2016 and 2017), Snarky Puppy isn’t exactly a jazz band. It’s not a fusion band, and it’s definitely not a jam band. It’s probably best to take Nate Chinen of the New York Times’ advice, as stated in an online discussion about the group, to “take them for what they are, rather than judge them for what they’re not.”
The thing that I personally love the most about this band is how full their sound is, especially with everyone on the same page, you can see how much fun they are having- just look at that drummer!
You all know the drill, these will stay up here for your enjoyment and you can also find these homies on soundcloud, itunes, and most other music mediums!
Have a tanfastic week everyone!!
