Royce Hall

Grammy-winning contemporary collective Snarky Puppy quintessentially embodies what it means to be a modern jazz fusion band - touring relentlessly, fearlessly pushing the boundaries of the form and constantly collaborating with a host of talented musicians. Lead by Grammy-winning composer and producer Michael League, a 40-member-strong cadre of rotating musicians regularly joins forces with some of the biggest names in R&B, hip-hop and beyond. This is music designed to move the brain as well as the booty.

Frequent collaborator of Snarky Puppy, Kneebody – who will open the show - is an eclectic Los Angeles quintet thoroughly acquainted with 1960s free-bop, 1970s jazz-rock, 1990s hip-hop and postmillennial indie rock—along with classical post-minimalism. Kneebody will also perform a free noon concert at Bruin Plaza on campus to kick off the first day of classes.

Supported in part by the Henry Mancini Tribute Fund.
