Jon Pareles described the band as "a thunderbolt dressed in bluejeans," with music that's "aching when it's slow and growling and whooping when it's fast." NPR named them one of the best bands of 2011, while MTV called them one of the top bands to look for in 2012.
Papa Grows Funk - Needle in the Groove CD - With the release of Needle in the Groove, the fifth CD by New Orleans' booty-shaking funk band, Papa Grows Funk, the band has elevated its inimitable groove to new funk heights. Co-produced by New Orleans' musical legends, Allen Toussaint and Tom Drummond, the CD keeps PGF's hot jazz lineage alive while funkifying towards the future. The song, "Do You Want It," captures the essence of classic '70s funk and is destined to be a hit.
Snarky Puppy - GroudUP CD - Snarky Puppy's 5th album was recorded and filmed live in-studio in HD in front of a 40-person audience. "It was, by far, the craziest thing we've ever done. We literally built a studio in a Brooklyn warehouse- in 3 days. Then we brought in 20 musician sand played 6 sets over 3 nights for 40 audience members each set... and it turned out better than I ever could have hoped." (Michael League) We saw this band perform last year at Bear Creek and have been enfatuated ever since. - HGMN
