Live On Stage at Levitt Pavillion is Snarky Puppy.
With the release of their live, two-disc album/DVD, Tell Your Friends, Snarky Puppy has gone from an underground secret to one of the most internationally respected names in instrumental music. The three-time Dallas Observer Music Award-winning group for Best Jazz Act has gained a reputation for putting on a live show unparalleled in energy, virtuosity and musicianship. They seamlessly fuse 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.
After spending its formative years at the University of North Texas, Snarky Puppy is somewhere between a garage band and a collective, with more than 25 players in regular rotation who include Grammy Award winners and mainstays with artists, such as Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, P Diddy, Dirty Money, The Polyphonic Spree, Snoop Dogg, Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Morcheeba, Tower of Power, Ari Hoenig and Adam Rogers, Justin Timberlake, Kenny Garrett, Yo-Yo Ma, Lucy Woodward, and Bilal.
