Rising bass star Michael League graced the cover of BP’s August 2014 issue, and we’ll have copies on hand at this unique chance to catch him leading a special ensemble of fabulous players—his jazz/funk/R&B band Snarky Puppy plus drum master Eric Harland. It goes down in the heart of San Francisco at the SFJAZZ Center’s impeccable Miner Auditorium.
Snarky Puppy’s rotating lineup features musicians that also perform with stars Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, Justin Timberlake, Roy Hargrove, Snoop Dogg, and John Mayer. The Grammy-winning band is supporting its ninth CD, We Like It Here, recorded live in the Dutch city of Utrecht.
Advance tickets to the Saturday night Snarky show are sold out, but it’s a good idea to check for turn-back tickets on performance day. The good news is that you can still win tickets through BP Presents by entering the contest below. One lucky winner will win a pair of show tickets plus an opportunity to meet and greet with Michael League who will autograph his BP cover story.
More good news is that members of Snarky Puppy including Michael League will also perform live on Sunday, February 1st with Eric Harland’s Voyager band in a big video game spectacular as two of Major League Gaming’s best players go head-to-head in a Madden NFL 15 matchup accompanied by live commentators. Tickets are available, plus BP Presents has a few freebies to give away (see details below).
Come see why BP Editor Chris Jisi calls Michael League “A true bass hero for the new Millennium.”
Watch League take a musical bass journey.
