Mike League is one of those musicians you hear worlds about before you meet them. And then you meet them and are surprised at the fact that they’re just as much of a goofball as you are. I met Mike a few years back at a show for Franky Rousseau’s amazing big band. Since then I have experienced his virtuosic bass playing and stage persona with starry eyed admiration every time. He is the mastermind behind “Snarky Puppy,” an electrically exciting Grammy winning band that involves every musician on Volume 5 except for me. It was an honor to finally have had him in the living room.
