A Few Questions with Michael League of Snarky Puppy

Bandleader and bass/guitar powerhouse, Michael League of Snarky Puppy dishes on after show meals, strange touring experiences & the best thing about Vancouver.

SnarkyPuppyBoarder.jpgCoastal Jazz: What is the band’s favourite after show meal?

Michael League: A tie between late-night Ramen in Tokyo and pintxos in San Sebastian, Spain.

CJ: The band has performed with artists such as Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, Justin Timeberlake, Kirk Franklin, Ari Hoenig, Roy Hargrove and Snoop Dog. Who was the most uniquely interesting to work with and why?

ML: Each artist has their own world- musically, socially, etc. I think the variety in the people we've worked with makes us more open to exploration in our own music.

CJ: What is the strangest experience you’ve ever encountered while touring?

ML: There are too many! If I had to single one out, it probably would have to be the time that Andre 3000 came to one of our gigs at a tiny bar in Athens, Georgia, 8 years ago. He was surrounded by sorority girls and bought one of every single thing we had at the merch table. Then a drunk college student jumped on stage, pulled down his pants, and got arrested. Not the weirdest experience, but definitely not a normal one.

CJ: Complete this sentence: Vancouver has the best ______ in the world!

ML: I don't think I could answer that without incriminating myself...

    I wish to seek after a music training at http://www.essayhelpdeal.co.uk/descriptive-essay/ in Korea later on when I’m more seasoned. Are there any striking colleges that offer quality music training? I wish to live and work in Korea later on and wanting to encounter the Korean lifestyle while contemplating there. When I’m considering there, do I have to lease a condo or would I be able to impart lofts to other individuals? (well it’ll be all the more intriguing and would it say it isn’t ideal to have a couple of companions you can depend on?) What are the openings for work like in the wake of getting a music degree? Other than being an entertainer. Music instructor? Music author? Lyricist?
