Snarky Puppy at the Crooked i
March 20, 8 p.m.
Snarky Puppy describes itself as a collective. The group began as an "underground" band, emerging from the University of Texas jazz program, but its visibility rapidly incrreased with an aggressive international tour schedule, including performances in Asia, Europe, Australia and North America. They have appeared at the North Sea, Monterey and Melbourne jazz festivals, in addition to clubs and concert halls worldwide.
Led by bass guitarist/composer Michael League, the band exhibits a shifting variety of instrumentation and increasingly complex arrangements combined with raw funk. Snarky Puppy is committed to music education and community outreeach, notably with the projects Roots of American Music in Cleveland, and the Music Lab at Jefferson Center in Roanoke.
