After hosting half a dozen of their shows here at Band on the Wall, we are delighted to present a long-awaited Snarky Puppy tour in larger venues across the UK. Featuring music from their last album We Like It Here along with new material from their forthcoming album Empire Central, expect raw funk, lyrical melodies and lush harmonies with the trademark energy, virtuosity and sheer musicianship of a live Snarky Puppy show.
‘brilliant musicianship, spirited improv, blazing energy and the kind of impressively vast textures that only a band this size can achieve.’ (theartsdesk.com)
Snarky Puppy have leapt from underground secret to international fame in a very short time. Winners of the 2013 GRAMMY ® award for Best R&B Performance with Something with Lalah Hathaway, they have reached critically-acclaimed heights with funky groundUP hits such as Thing of Gold, Young Stuff and Binky.
‘Snarky Puppy’s is a mighty sound and in full flow they can punch holes through the big band, r’n’b and jazz fusion genres.’ (LondonJazz)
