Ghost-Note Announces Spring Tour
When Ghost-Note emerged on the scene, we had an inkling that two of the Snarky Puppy boys had put together a jazz-funk juggernaut, which turned out to be accurate. We just didn’t appreciate the incredible enormity of that juggernaut! We were totally blown out when we first caught them in action back in 2019.
Now Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth (the aforementioned Pup alums) are ready to hit the road with Ghost-Note for eight nights (and eleven shows!), beginning April 2 & 3 at Fool’s Engagement Music & Arts Festival in Bradford, Florida. Dumpstaphunk is also on that bill Saturday, and the two bands will later combine for some ridiculousness referred to as Ghost-Phunk!
Two shows a night for two days at Charleston Pour House follow, and then Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio and DJ Logic join Ghost-Note for a pair of nights in Charlotte at Heist Brewery & Barrel Arts. G-N heads next to Tennessee for two nights and wraps up this spring tour with two shows in St. Louis.
Ghost-Note are: Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar) – drums; Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy) – percussion; Vaughn “V.Keys” Henry – keyboards; Dwayne “MonoNeon” Thomas (Prince) – bass; Peter Knudsen, guitar; Sylvester Onyejiaka (Prince, Quantic) – baritone sax, tenor sax, flute; Dominique Xavier Taplin (Prince, Toto) – keyboards; Jonathan Mones (Funky Knuckles, RC & The Gritz) – alto sax, flute; and Mike Jelani Brooks (Kirk Franklin, RC & The Gritz) – tenor saxophone, flute.
