Snarky Puppy was formed by bassist and primary composer Michael League in 2003, starting humbly as a group of college friends at the University of North Texas’ Jazz Studies program. Three years after a serendipitous intersection with the Dallas gospel and R&B community in Dallas, the band transformed its sound into something funkier, more direct, and more visceral. It was at this time that the group absorbed musicians like Robert “Sput” Searight (drums), Shaun Martin (keyboards), and Bobby Sparks (keyboards).
At its core, Snarky Puppy represents the convergence of both black and white American music culture, with various accents from Japan, Argentina, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico. But beyond its musical diversity, Snarky Puppy’s richly improvised music is infused with the joy of performing together and pushing creative boundaries.
