Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - FRONT PAGE - By Ben Cran­dell SOUTHFLORIDA.COM

Rock icon David Crosby, Grammy-win­ning soul singer Lalah Hath­away and joy­ful New Or­leans up­starts Tank and the Ban­gas high­light the lineup for Snarky Puppy’s 2019 GroundUp Mu­sic Fes­ti­val Feb. 8-10 at the North Beach Band­shell on Mi­ami Beach.

Tick­ets for the fes­ti­val cost $85 per day or $225 for a three-day pass, while pre­mium passes are $170 per day, $450 for three days. For an ad­di­tional charge, you can join preshow meet-and-greet cock­tail re­cep­tions with the artists each night for $125, and tick­ets to the pop­u­lar post-con­cert jam par­ties start at $20. All tick­ets are avail­able at GroundUpMu­sicFes­ti­val.com.

Pro­duced with help from the Rhythm Foun­da­tion, this is the third edi­tion of this am­bi­tious fes­ti­val, cu­rated by Michael League and Snarky Puppy, the cut­ting-edge Brook­lyn­based jazz out­fit that has three Grammy Awards to its name.

Snarky Puppy will play all three nights of the fes­ti­val, of­fer­ing world-pre­miere per­for­mances of mu­sic from the band’s up­com­ing al­bum.

Other per­form­ers sched­uled for the 2019 GroundUp Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in­clude Su­sana Baca, Bill Lau­rence (Snarky Puppy), Bokanté (which in­cludes Mi­ami’s Roo­sevelt Col­lier), the Funky Knuck­les, GhostNote, PRD Mais, Michelle Wil­lis, In­nov Gnawa, Lucy Wood­ward, House of Wa­ters, Maz, La Perla, the O’Pears and the New York Gypsy All-Stars.

League also will per­form as part of David Crosby’s Light­house Band, join­ing Michelle Wil­lis and Becca Stevens, which de­liv­ered a sub­lime per­for­mance of mu­sic from Crosby’s “Light­house” al­bum at the in­au­gu­ral GroundUp Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in 2017. The three also joined Crosby on his lat­est al­bum, “Here If You Lis­ten.”

Lalah Hath­away, daugh­ter of in­com­pa­ra­ble soul singer Donny Hath­away, shared a best R&B per­for­mance Grammy Award with Snarky Puppy in 2014 for “Some­thing,” a song that ap­peared on the Snarky Puppy al­bum “Fam­ily Din­ner — Vol­ume One.” Hath­away will serve as artist-at-large at GroundUp 2019, likely to pop up in sev­eral per­for­mances.

Other sup­port­ers of the fes­ti­val in­clude Mi­amiDade County and the Mi­ami Beach Vis­i­tor and Con­ven­tion Au­thor­ity. The North Beach Band­shell is at 7275 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit NorthBeachBand­shell.com. bcran­[email protected]­tinel.com
