Snarky Puppy is a collective of musicians in Dallas and New York City playing an infectious mixture of jazz, funk and world music. Music to move the brain and booty.

The once Texan, now New York-based, Grammy award-winning quasi-collective Snarky Puppy has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Although still "underground" in many respects, the band has earned high praise from critical stalwarts like the BBC, Village Voice, Guardian, and Boston Herald, and has performed at some of the best venues and festivals in Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America.

The band has always used live performance as its chief form of evangelism, and maintains a more intense tour schedule than almost any band in the idiom. Over the course of 2013, Snarky Puppy gave almost 200 performances and workshops on four continents, including North Sea Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz á Vienne, Blue Note Tokyo, and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

Debuting in 2004 and releasing a series of well-received albums along the way, Snarky Puppy finally gained the recognition they deserved after 10 hardworking years. Their most recent album, "Family Dinner - Volume One," earned a Grammy for Best R&B Performance with featured guest Lalah Hathaway, as well as charting #1 on the ITUNES Jazz Charts.

Bandleader, Michael League shared his band's journey during his speech at the Grammys: "I started this band ten years ago at a little college in Texas, and they spent the last ten years with me, eight of them touring very unglamorously on the road and sleeping on floors and couches, and to be here, right now, is completely unimaginable."
