Snarky Puppy is truly a different kind of musical animal. The New York-based quasi-collective have leapt from being an underground secret to international fame in a very short time. 2014 got off to a winning start for the group; they took their first Grammy Award for ‘Best RnB Performance’ ft. Lalah Hathaway, released a brand new album We Like It Here and played two sold-out shows at London’s Scala in May.

With a deep knowledge and respect for the tradition, their music ranges from raw funk and soul through to lyrical melodies and lush harmonies, and their live shows are unparalleled in energy, virtuosity, and sheer musicianship.

‘Nobody outran the sheer flat-out verve of American jazz-fusion collective Snarky Puppy, who funked everybody’s suncream off as if recreating the movie Speed, playing as if the tent would explode if they slowed funk-delivery below 50mph.’
