Polyrhythmics and Snarky Puppy
On the twentieth night of April, 2012, prepare for a HUGE booty shakin' night at the Olympia Ballroom! These two bands plus a glorious Olympia crowd are gonna make for one grand and memorable party.

Formed in 2004 by bassist Michael League, Snarky Puppy has grown tremendously from a bunch of kids at the University of North Texas into the powerhouses they are today. Members of Snarky Puppy have played with many big names in jazz and popular music, including Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Chaka Khan, Morcheeba, Kirk Franklin, Beyonce, Wayne Krantz, Ari Hoenig, Adam Rogers, Patti Austin, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Jason Marsalis, John Ellis, Noisettes, Dave Brubeck, and countless more. Two of the band's members have even won Grammys for their work. While making names for themselves with these giants of the scene, Snarky Puppy still manages to play fucking great music together, and this record is no different.

Polyrhythmics is an all original 8-piece afro-funk and world beat orchestra comprised of some of Seattle's finest rhythmic and melodic musicians. The music is a fusion of styles from all over the world, featuring unique, forward thinking arrangements, stellar improvisation, heavy grooves, and dynamic interplay.

Polyrhythmics are :

Ben Bloom - Guitar
Grant Schroff- Drums
Jason Gray - Bass
Nathan Spicer - Keyboards
Lalo Bello- Percussion
Scott Morning - Trumpet
Elijah Clark -Trombone
Art Brown - Tenor Sax and Flute

Polyrhythmics have quickly gained notoriety playing to packed clubs and festival crowds all over the Northwest. Their self-titled, and now sold-out EP released in 2010, has been charting on radio playlists up and down the west coast.

After a year of further developing their distinct sound, the band recorded their first full-length album. The resulting "Labrador" is a 9-song powerhouse full of brooding dance grooves, and catchy layered horn melodies. "Labrador" was recorded at Sleng Teng Studios ,specifically for it's vintage sound, and the recording process was very similar to their approach on the EP: "live" in one room, just like the greats of yester-year. "Labrador" debuted internationally on June 1st 2011 to critical acclaim and established a place at the ever crowded "funk" table for this fast-moving , powerhouse of a band.
