Never miss another 'Snarky Puppy' show
This event takes place at KOKO, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Snarky Puppy was formed in 2004 by bassist and primary composer Michael League. Snarky Puppy was signed by SiTMoM Records in fall of 2005, and subsequently recorded and released their first studio record, “The Only Constant”, in winter of 2006. The CD has met critical acclaim from the industry’s top musicians and representatives, and has created a serious buzz among musicians and non-musicians alike.
The group draws upon a variety of musical traditions compositionally, but showcases more modern styles, especially jazz, funk, fusion, and drum n’ bass.
The 3-time Dallas Observer Music Award winning group ("Best Jazz Act" 2008, 2009, 2010) 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.
Snarky Puppy tour dates
GoGo Penguin have managed to create a sound that is wholly their own - anthemic melodies from pianist Chris Illingworth hypnotise over rolling, skittering beats from drummer Rob Turner, all propelled forward by pulsing acoustic bass lines from Nick Blacka.
Their instrumentation might be the archetypal piano trio but while the melodic, harmonic and structural ideas are influenced by both classical and jazz, the rhythms are drawn from across the rich history of the UK rave scene. It’s this meeting of opposites that makes their unique acoustic-electronica sound so exciting, drawing on a heady brew of influences from Brian Eno, Debussy and John Cage to Squarepusher, Aphex Twin and Massive Attack, with a dose of the grey, rain-streaked urbanity of Manchester thrown into the mix.
