I would love to see Snarky Puppy on the boat next year therefore I am calling all lovers of this awesome group to request them on the JC survey that should be hitting our email inboxes soon. Please please add them and with that if anyone has other suggestions I would be happy to give a listen and maybe form a consensus of three bands. I would prefer to vote for bands that have not been on the boat and bands that don't play stadiums. Snarky Puppy and Brooklyn Funk Essentials are my top two picks
I second the Snarky Puppy recommendation! Saw them in Seattle last year & thought they were great! Not familiar w/Brooklyn Funk Essentials but will check 'em out... although I will probably vote for some local Seattle bands that would also be a great fit for JC: McTuff, Industrial Revelation, Polyrthythmics, etc. Soooooo much talent in this town right now!!
