Back in September, we told you about legendary rocker David Crosby singing the praises of JamBase favorites Snarky Puppy in numerous tweets. On Thanksgiving, Snarky Puppy revealed Crosby will be one of the artists joining them at Esplanade Studios in New Orleans between February 12 -14 to record Family Dinner (Volume 2).

Snarky Puppy have recruited vocalists and instrumentalists from around the world including Jeff Coffin of DMB fame, Brazilian Carlos Malta and guitarist Charlie Hunter to perform with the band over the course of three nights with two shows presented per night. While the band has offered tickets to attend the recording sessions, they immediately sold out. Proceeds from Family Dinner (Volume 2) will benefit a music charity called The Roots of Music, which empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of New Orleans.
