Snarky Puppy

Empire Central Tour

A collective with a regular rotation of 20 members, Snarky Puppy is a hard to defined jazz experience, recipient of Grammy awards for the Best R&B Performance (2014) and the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album (2016, 2017, 2021). 

Their latest album, Empire Central, is both bold and laid back, rooted in its native culture while reaching outward. The sound rises like a skyscraper from a 21st century orchestra comprising three guitarists, four keyboardists, two brass, two reeds, a violinist, multiple percussionists and drummers and the accomplished, yet modest Michael League keeping it all together with his bass.
