When multi-Grammy Award winning US band Snarky Puppy took to the stage of London’s Royal Albert Hall in November last year, it marked the culmination of a 17-year journey for the group. Going from unknowns to the biggest instrumental group on the planet was a combination of good timing and pure hard graft, but their breakthrough happened when the band played their first show outside the US at Cargo, London in 2012.
The word soon spread about their exciting groove-heavy music via a series of innovative live recording sessions that were shared on YouTube and watched by millions of music fans. And, on each return visit to the UK the venues kept getting bigger and bigger, going from clubs to halls like KOKO, then The Roundhouse, Brixton Academy and most recently the Royal Albert Hall. The latter was an explosive show – and yet for all the volume, colossal grooves and epic solos – the sound was crystal clear and retained a sense of dynamics that belied the fact the group were playing to 5,500 people.
