Multiphonic Funk Performing Snarky Puppy Tribute Concert at Soul City Friday December 9th, 2016

  multi-p-at-soul-city

Multiphonic Funk presents a concert exclusively of music by the band Snarky Puppy.

Multiphonic Funk, who’s genre is a fusion between funk and jazz, is made up of a group of friends from the Tulsa area that formed in January of 2016 and has been thriving ever since.  “We implement elements of jazz into our funk via the form of the tunes and the melodies, but the time, feel, style, and improvisations are all very heavily funk influenced” says Drew Thomas who is the band leader, main arranger/writer and also the saxophonist in the band.mf-logo

Snarky Puppy is a collective of sorts with as many as 25 members in regular rotation. They each maintain busy schedules as sidemen (with such artists as Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and D’Angelo), producers (for Kirk Franklin, David Crosby, and Salif Keïta), and solo artists (many of whom are on the band’s indy label, GroundUP Music).

At its core, the band represents the convergence of both black and white American music culture with various accents from around the world. Japan, Argentina, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico all have representation in the group’s membership. But more than the cultural diversity of the individual players, the defining characteristic of Snarky Puppy’s music is the joy of performing together in the perpetual push to grow creatively.grammy_nostella-snarky-puppy
