Snarky Puppy
with special guest Alina Engibaryan

 

After a decade of relentless touring and recording in all-but-complete obscurity, Snarky Puppy suddenly found itself held up by the press and public as one of the major forces in the jazz world.

A Brooklyn-based collective that grew out of the celebrated jazz program at the University of North Texas, the band — which features a rotating cast of musicians playing guitars, percussion, horns, keyboards, and even strings — represents the convergence of both black and white American music culture with various accents from around the world. Its musicians have performed with Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Kirk Franklin, and Justin Timberlake, among others. Displaying a rare and delicate mixture of sophisticated composition, harmony, and improvisation, the ensemble’s influences include gospel, R&B, jazz, funk, and rock. Don’t miss the most explosively funky mega-band around.

Opening act features vocalist, pianist, and songwriter Alina Engibaryan, who will be joined on stage by select touring members from Snarky Puppy.
