Welcome back to the United States. Unfortunately, here ends the Jazz Around the World 2 tour. Thank you for joining us on this unique journey. I hope you enjoyed the music as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you.


If your flight does not leave right away, we have one more performance for you.


We are fortunate to have Snarky Puppy welcome you back to the U.S. The three-time GRAMMY® award-winning collective, known to insiders as ‘the Fam’, was started by bassist Michael League in Denton, Texas in 2003. Most of the group’s members were students at the University of North Texas. ‘The Fam’ is now Brooklyn-based and is comprised of about 40 members who rotate in and out as schedules permit. A few of the members are also producers for major artists. Others have their own bands. Some have even won GRAMMYs for their work outside the Snarky Puppy collective.


Snarky Puppy paid dues for around 10 years, touring and recording, but the recognition they deserved continued to elude them. Then, almost overnight, the public and press ‘found’ them. They have since performed with artists as varied as Kirk Franklin, Roy Hargrove, Marcus Miller, Justin Timberlake, Erykah Badu, and David Crosby. The group is now known and respected worldwide, selling out shows far in advance. You will soon see why.


Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Snarky Puppy:














Featuring Lalah Hathaway – Live DVD/CD Family Dinner – Volume One – “Something”











Live at Festival Django Reinhardt 2018 – “Grown Folks”
