Snarky Puppy / Funky Knuckles
With the release of its last two live CD/DVDs, 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 (Best Jazz Act 2008, 2009, 2010) fuses 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 carefree audience.
Made up of Dallas's finest improvisers and pocket players, the Funky Knuckles bring greasy funk and rich jazz harmony together in their own unique way. They are the newest addition to freshly formed GroundUP Music's artist roster, and are releasing their debut album, As Of Lately, in early 2012.
