Snarky Puppy to perform Sunday,
September 21 at Old Rock House

The peripatetic funk/jazz/world music ensemble Snarky Puppy (pictured) will returning to St. Louis for the first time in 2014 to perform at 8:00 p.m. Sunday, September 21 at the Old Rock House.

The group played here twice last year, first in May at The Demo, then in August at the ORH. All in all, 2013 was something of a breakthrough year for Snarky Puppy, as they got favorable notice in mainstream media outlets such as the BBC, Village Voice, Guardian, and Boston Herald while logging nearly 200 performances and workshops on four continents, including appearances at North Sea Jazz, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz á Vienne, Blue Note Tokyo, and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

They also earned their first Grammy Award this year, winning Best R&B Performance for "Something," a track from their live DVD/CD Family Dinner, Volume One featuring guest vocalist Lalah Hathaway. Their latest album, We Like It Here, was released in February and documents four nights of live-in-the-studio performances last year in The Netherlands.

Tickets for the all-ages show are $20 in advance, $22 day of show, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Wednesday, May 21.
