Kick off the second weekend of New Orleans' 2013 Jazz Fest at The Maison on Frenchmen St starting Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 at 10PM! Snarky Puppy turned a very definitive corner in 2012. The band released the critically-acclaimed live, in-studio DVD groundUP, which immediately soared to #3 on the ITUNES jazz charts and #14 on Billboard. Shortly after, YouTube views skyrocketed to over 1.5 million combined. Heading to Europe for the first time, Snarky Puppy was met with sell-out crowds (including encore performances in London and Paris) and accosted by representatives of the continent's largest jazz festivals. The spring trip was so successful that a fall follow-up tour was quickly booked, including sold-out performances at the London Jazz Festival and the prestigious New Morning in Paris among many others. Home audiences were no exception, as over half of Snarky Puppy's 140 North American shows sold out. The band has gained a reputation for not only putting on one of the most unique live experiences in the instrumental world, but also attracting to its shows the biggest names in the music community. 2013 will see Snarky Puppy's debut in India, Australia (Melbourne International Jazz Festival), and Russia, as well as more extended touring in Europe and North America. The band also plans to record 3 albums over the course of the year, the first being a collaboration with 12 different singers, from Grammy-winners to unknown talents. The second is a project in conjunction with Chamber Music of America and Roanoke's Jefferson Center for the Arts in which the band will record and produce original material written by 17-year-old Burundian multi-instrumentalist Bukuru Celestin. And finally, another live DVD featuring the whole Snarky Puppy family will be recorded and released by the end of 2013.
