Bluesfest Sideshows 2024: Snarky Puppy, Meshell Ndegeocello, The Blind Boys Of Alabama

Snarky Puppy, Meshell Ndegeocello, and The Blind Boys Of Alabama have announced Bluesfest sideshows in 2024. All three acts will play sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne in late March and early April. Snark Puppy will appear at Forum Melbourne and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre; Ndegeocello will be at the Factory in Sydney and Melbourne Recital Centre; and the Blind Boys will perform at Sydney’s City Recital Hall and Melbourne Recital Centre.

“The Blind Boys of Alabama first played Bluesfest in 1992, and they’ll be returning in 2024 for the eighth time,” Bluesfest director Peter Noble said in a statement. “They are the most celebrated and well-known gospel artists in the world. Please join us for what is a very special experience and one you’ll never know if you’ll ever get to see them again.”

Snarky Puppy, Meshell Ndegeocello, and the Blind Boys of Alabama are all Grammy-winning performers

Noble spoke enthusiastically about the career success of Snarky Puppy. “Snarky Puppy has only been around for ten years, and in this short time, they have won five Grammys and pretty much every poll held by JazzTimes or DownBeat. They really are the preeminent jazz band of our time. But it’s more than just jazz; it’s funky as.”

Noble also directed some praise at Ndegeocello. “Meshell Ndegeocello is a phenomenon. With a staggering eleven Grammy nominations, her style transcends genres, and her shows always leave a lasting impression on audiences.”
