Im November haben wir mit Ghost-Note, eine Band zu Gast im Bunker, die schon etliche Grammys gewonnen hat. Das Duo Robert Sput Searight und Nate Werth, welche durch „Snarky Puppy“ bekannt sind (und die den Bunker so dermaßen in der Vergangenheit aufgemischt haben, dass noch heute allein beim erwähnen des Namens der Band die Augen feucht werden), bilden dabei den Kern. Ghost-Note heben Percussion zweifelsfrei auf ein neues Level. Ghost Note vereint Musik aus aller Richtung, Einflüsse von Afro- Kubanischen und brasilianischen Samba Grooves geben sich die Hand. Inspiriert ist die Band von Musikern wie James Brown, J Dilla und den Beastie Boys und West-Afrikanischer Volksmusik und dem Einfluss Afro-Kubanischem und Brasilianischem Samba.. Mit ihrem neuem Album „ Swagism“ touren sie im Herbst 2018 das erste Mal durch Europa. Wir sind völlig aus dem Häuschen diese mega Band im Bunker begrüßen zu dürfen! Das wird ein Ohrenschmaus!

Multi-Grammy Award winning artists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth take percussion out of the shadows and into the spotlight with their new project, 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, J Dilla, and the Beastie Boys, all the way to folkloric West African, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian samba grooves.

Ghost-Note’s impressive rotating roster of heavy hitters combine their decades of experience to create a night of unforgettable musical madness. Band members include Sylvester Onyejiaka (Prince, Quantic) on flute, tenor, and baritone sax, Jonathan Mones (Funky Knuckles, RC and the Gritz) on flute, alto, and tenor saxophone, A.J. Brown (Fred Hammond) on bass, internet star Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas (Prince) on bass and guitar, Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy) on keyboards, Daniel Jones (Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake) on keyboards, Nick Werth (Galaxe, Yak Attack) on xylosynth, Mike Jelani Brooks (Kirk Franklin, RC & the Gritz) on tenor saxophone, and Alvin Ford Jr. (Pretty Lights, Dumpstaphunk) on drums.

Ghost-Note’s first record, Fortified, which debuted at #1 on the ITunes Jazz charts in 2015, not only showcases Searight and Werth’s unique duo approach to rhythm, but it also highlights a phenomenal community of Dallas musicians. Fortified includes features by Shaun Martin, N’Dambi, Mark Lettieri, Caleb McCampbell, Jason “JT” Thomas, RSVP, and Nick Werth, and guest appearances by Cleon Edwards, Taron Lockett, Marcelo Woloski, Wes Stephenson, Bob Lanzetti, A.J.
