Ghost-Note is “dizzying, decidedly 21st-century jazz…fully funked and respectful of no boundary.” – Good Times
Multi-Grammy award-winning artists Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth take percussion out of the shadows and into the spotlight with Ghost-Note. World renown for their ongoing catalog with international sensation Snarky Puppy, this dynamic duo expands their rhythmical voice into a celebration of music in all its forms. This is music that takes listeners on a mind-blowing journey, inspired by the influences of James Brown, Prince, and J Dilla to name a few. Since forming, Ghost-Note’s sound has evolved to a state that can best be described as ‘conscious funk’ – an elaborate and sonically powerful surge of the tremendous talents that each of the players provides, with the bandleaders leaning back and letting the band go. The core lineup is a rotating cast of heavy hitters, (including former Prince bassist, Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas) – all stretching to meet the expanding nature of the band. Ghost-Note’s bold and in-your-face performances create seductive danceable grooves and a contagious, feel-good energy, as each show offers a chance to let loose and connect for both fans and the musicians alike. Sylvester Onyejiaka saxophone, Jelani Brooks saxophone, Xavier Taplin keyboards, Jonathon Mones saxophone, Peter Knudsen guitar
