Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten Host Free Webinar with Snarky Puppy
The weekly webinar held by Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten is rolling on this week with a presentation featuring the entire roster of Snarky Puppy including bassist Michael League. This week’s event will be held on November 18th at 3 pm Eastern time.
“Snarky Puppy is hard to define… a Grammy Award Winning Jazz Band, Horn Band, Funk Band, Rock Band, Instrumental Band, Vocal Band…?” Bailey writes. “This collective of many GREAT musicians has permeated the global music scene with progressive and forward-thinking writing while remaining deeply rooted in tradition. Founded in 2003, Michael League’s recipe for a bus-load of virtuosi has made many of us rethink where music is headed.”
The webinar will include League along with Bill Laurance, Bob Lanzetti, Bob Reynolds, Bobby Sparks, Chris Bullock, Chris McQueen, Jamison Ross, Jason “JT” Thomas, Jay Jennings, Justin Stanton, Keita Ogawa, Larnell Lewis, Marcelo Woloski, Mark Lettieri, Mike “Maz” Maher, Nate Werth, Shaun Martin, and Zach Brock.
As always, the Zoom meeting is free and open to the public. However, the band is accepting donations that will be split among the members to help them through COVID times. Register for the event via the Berklee’s online Zoom campus, and donate to the band through their online form.
