Thanks for the prompt.

Just checked their scedule. Apart from a break in August looks like they play every night until December - sure don't need any practice time.

I get to see them at Love Supreme Festival in July (Brighton UK) wish they had Lalla Hathaway in the band. I can dream...
Do they always have a vocalist or are they sometimes just instrumental.?

I have seen them 5 times. They never had a vocalist on any of those occasions.

If this lot went on tour together it would be an expensive project!

I've seen them 2 times. Second time was fully instrumental, but the first time was set with a vocalist (Lucy Woodward) and a second set instrumental...

Both times were amazing.

These guys were going to come here on the 24th of this month but it looks like they've now cancelled.

I'm really disappointed I was very keen to go along.

Saw the 'pups for the 6th time last night at a brand new venue near Pittsburgh. I'm not one to have my phone out at a concert, but as soon as Bobby Sparks started a Hammond solo on Grown Folks I new I had to record it.



Looks like his B3 is modified with some sort of reverb unit? You can see him reaching for it at the 1:20 mark.

Bobby is awesome. Very psyched to see him with SP in LA in a few weeks.

I have yet to see Bobby live with SP, video's I have watched are excellent. DC Jazz Fest next month will be my chance. thu
Check this out. The clavinet groove he provides in the beginning of "Grown Folks" is new to the SP sound. cool

I'm late to this thread, but I just saw Snarky with a couple of my bandmates in Milwaukee (5/23). What a stunner show - killed it the whole way through, and as a keyboardist, getting to see a Bobby Clavinet and Organ solo, a Shaun Martin Moog solo, and a Justin Staton Rhodes/Prophet 6 solo was mind-blowing. Alina Engibaryan (GroudUp Artist, opening act) was amazing as well. After the show, we headed to where the band was supposedly gonna stop by the merch table. Not only did we get to meet most of them, get pictures, and such (they really are as nice as everyone says they are - some of the humblest musicians I've seen), but before signing a copy of our CD, Michael League asked if we could sign one for them(!!!)...

Of course, I didn't want to immediately assume I'm supposed to sign my album for THE Snarky Puppy (my band and I are only high school students, after all), so I said something like "We'll get there someday!" and I will never forget - Michael just goes "Yeah... Today." and puts our CD down with a pen in front of us. Such awesome people, such awesome musicians, and I really look forward to seeing them again as soon as I can.


Founder and manager of the Progressive Rock band Fightin' Bob. Debut album out soon!

-Guitars of all types
-Drums
-A little Banjo, Mandolin, Bagpipes, Vocals, and more!

Really nice report! They are indeed Very humble people.

Nice that Alina was the opening act. She graduated at the conservatory of my city in the Netherlands. She has an amazing voice!

loving this 8 year old thread. Just saw my second show this year, my fav of the 2. Were it at 930 Club I would need to be in the owners box to get this vantage point. cool

Let's add this to the mix. I love how he caught the "Spain" quote. Talk about a quick study!

It might be one of the most amazing feats of musicianship I've ever witnessed. What a masterclass on active listening and how to pay attention to form and structure -- but also, I don't think even the most careful breakdown or transcription would put me in a place where I would nail those intro rhythms so accurately and consistently the first time I actually play them.

Indeed!

Though I'm disappointed that they didn't show his notes! (Did I miss it?) I love seeing what kind of notes other people take.
