Snarky Puppy to Host First Annual GroundUP Music Festival
If the name Snarky Puppy means anything to you, then you might be interested in the latest announcement from GroundUP Music.
Founded by Snarky Puppy bassist Mike League, the record label is home to not only Snarky Puppy, but other equally ground-breaking artists including Charlie Hunter, The Funky Knuckles, Banda Magda and more. Its mission — as stated on the GroundUP Music website — is “to harness the power of music to help influence listener’s emotions, behaviors and occasionally morals,” and come February 2017, they will be unleashing that power on Miami Beach for the first annual GroundUP Music Festival.
Snarky Puppy has released three incredibly diverse albums in less than two years, including a full orchestral collaboration with the Metropole Orkest, which earned them a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, Family Dinner Vol. 2, which features collaborations with everyone from Jeff Coffin to David Crosby, and their most recent studio album, Culcha Vulcha, which was released in April of this year.
While the details for the inaugural GroundUP Music Festival are still coming in, the depths of talent that the Snarky Puppy crew has available to pull from automatically guarantees that this event will be a game changer. According to the initial announcement, only 1,500 tickets will be sold… and you can bet that those will go quickly!
No dates have been set for when tickets will be available to purchase, but you can visit the Official GroundUP Music website and sign up to receive e-mail updates to ensure that you will not miss Snarky Puppy’s first festival.
