The New York Times recently caught up with Snarky Puppy, a band the article described as “a barnstorming, groove-centric instrumental act,” and “revved-up jazz fusion.” The band had gathered with notable, recent collaborators including folk rocker David Crosby for dinner before watching the film that will accompany their latest release, Family Dinner Volume Two, due out on Friday, February 12th. Bethesda Blues and Jazz is set to present two shows by Snarky Puppy on Monday, May 2nd at 7pm and 10pm. Members of Snarky Puppy will also be performing at BBJ as part of Red Eyed Sinatra on Wednesday, February 24th, the Bill Laurance Group featuring Michael League and Robert “Sput” Searight on Tuesday, March 22nd, and Ghost Note on Thursday, April 14th.
Snarky Puppy both connects listeners back to the heyday of groups like Weather Report, while being at the front of the next wave of performers blending funk, rock, electronic sounds, and hip-hop. Read the February 5th New York Times article, “Snarky Puppy: A House Built on Solid Funk,” for some thoughts by bandleader Michael League and others on the group’s evolution, influence, and eclectic style.
