They still exist, those grass-roots stories of bands that live on the other side of the music industry and become famous on their own, through the quality of their live performances and the mouth propaganda of their fans. Okay, okay, YouTube may have helped! But still, the musician collective Snarky Puppy, that originally came from Texas and is now at home in Brooklyn, have visitor numbers that popstars dream of, so they don’t need a manager. Do it yourself! Snarky Puppy has been around since 2004, but their big breakthrough came about in the last one, two years, when the band played around 180 concerts per year. Because touring is costly and cumbersome, the ensemble is based on a pool of 35 to 40 musicians, which makes it possible to stay enthusiastic about being Snarky Puppy on the one hand, and to earn good money performing with Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller and Snoop Dogg on the other. For those who want to know how tight Snarky Puppy’s groove is and how much the Puppies love their music, check out “Something” feat. Lalah Hathaway online. It was awarded a Grammy in 2014, for the best “R&B performance”. Snarky Puppy used the revived label “Impulse!” for their current album “Sylva“, recorded with Metropol Orkest. The band’s serious retro-fusion-groove suits them well: The only way is up!
