Music for your brain and booty. Brooklyn’s Snarky Puppy bring their dazzling, genre-bending, jazz/funk/dance fused sounds to Band on the Wall band for a night of exhilarating music. 

With the release of their last two live CD/DVDs, Snarky Puppy has gone from an underground secret to one of the most internationally respected names in instrumental music. 

The 3-time Dallas Observer Music Award winning group (“Best Jazz Act” 2008, 2009, 2010) 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 core of the group, which remains consistent, features Grammy Award-winners Robert “Sput” Searight on drums (God’s Property, Snoop Dogg) and Shaun Martin on keys (Kirk Franklin, Erykah Badu). Led by award-winning bassist/composer Michael League, Snarky Puppy delivers raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition and improvisation. Support tonight featuring the wonderful voice of Maz (backed by Snarky Puppy) who has just released his debut album on Ground Up Records.
