Snarky Puppy at the Montreal Jazz Festival

It's hard to believe June 30th, 2015 was Snarky Puppy's first time performing at the Montreal Jazz Festival; they filled the 2300-capacity M├ętropolis Theatre like a veteran act. That's not to say that Snarky Puppy hasn't been around for a while (they formed in 2004) or that they haven't performed in Montreal before (they have, several times), but after winning a Grammy in 2014, the collective seems to be just hitting their stride. Their Montreal show was their 20th concert in 21 days, and the final stop of their North American tour.
