Today, Ghost-Note shares a string of headlining tour dates for their newly announced Smack Em' tour, taking place early 2019. The newly announced dates are bookended by the already shared performances alongside Lettuce throughout the east coast and Umphrey's McGee throughout the west coast.
After their debut performance at Brooklyn Steel with Lettuce in mid-January, Ghost-Note will head to Los Angeles for their first of many headlining performances, followed by an appearance at the Snarky Puppy-founded festival, GroundUP Music Festival, in Miami, FL. The band then hits Orlando, Dunedin and Gainesville in Florida, before heading towards Charleston, SC for a performance at Charleston Pourhouse, with headlining dates following in Atlanta, GA and Roanoke, VA. Their tour concludes on the west coast with Umphrey's McGee in early March, with appearances scheduled in Oakland, CA, Bend and Eugene, OR and Seattle, WA, with a very special second Los Angeles, CA date tucked in.
Multi-Grammy Award-winning artists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth launched their powerhouse ensemble of Ghost-Note back in 2015 and until recently, live performances have been scarce. Today, Searight and Werth are joined by Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas Jr. (bass), Xavier Taplin (keys), Vaughn “V-Keys” Henry (keys), Peter Knudsen (guitar) and Jonathan Mones (alto sax & flute).
