Full Show Friday: Snarky Puppy 9/25/14 Raleigh, NC

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week..Snarky Puppy!

It's Jazzy January again here at RtBE, so get ready to kick off 2015 with some different styled shows every Friday, we are skewing into new (or more recent) jazz land this month but it's all cool daddy'O! Keeping it recent to prove there is amazing live jazz still being performed no matter what Ken Burns says.

The jazz collective with upwards of 30 members known as Snarky Puppy are our Full Show Friday this week. Their style is a mix of jazz genres, thoughts, and eras. They can be funky, turn on a dime, solo for multiple measures or jam out as a unit. These guys are really talented and good people holding music teaching clinics on the road when they tour. An interesting group especially because the dynamic of the band is so varied their sound can be all over the place but it is pretty much always grounded in Awesomeville.   

Just a quick note, as you can see from the info below, the fact that this was recorded on an iPhone is pretty unreal. Technology has come a shockingly long way in recent years.
