CNY Jazz collaborates on Snarky Puppy concert

Syracuse NY – The extended “CNY Jazz Family” will enjoy special treatment and privileges surrounding the upcoming Syracuse concert by Snarky Puppy, the world’s premier jazz, funk, and world music band, five-time Grammy winner and staple of the international festival circuit. The nearly 20-strong ensemble will appear at Sharkey’s Event Center on June 25th as a stop on their 2023 world tour.

CNY Jazz donors holding “CNY Jazz Club” cards will receive $10.00 to $15.00 off advance tickets to the show for the cardholder and one companion only, and all students showing a current college or High School I.D. will gain entry to an exclusive pre-concert clinic and pre-show educational event with members of the band. All cards must be shown at the entry gate.

“We were overjoyed, stunned, actually, when the band’s promoters reached out to us to collaborate on this event,” said Larry Luttinger CNY Jazz founder and director. “To have our regional mission and our year-round programs noticed like this is a real honor, and the kids in our scholastic programs will be super excited. This is one of the highest value, unique benefits that any arts organization could hope to offer their core supporters.”

Led by bassist Michael League, Snarky Puppy has blazed a unique trail through the music world, known for their unique, totally live recording sessions with no overdubs in front of a live audience and recordings with an eclectic list of guest artists ranging from Jacob Collier to David Crosby. A musical collective, it predominantly performs with an army of musicians, from 20 to 30, including multiple brass, reeds, guitars, drummers and percussionists.

Advance tickets to the show are on sale now, and student tickets are offered at $30.00. For information on how to get a CNY Jazz Club donor card for privileges at this and other events, visit
