Ghost Light has announced a special post-Phish late-night show in New York City. The band–featuring electrifying Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and American Babies guitarist Tom Hamilton, incomparable pianist and keyboard player Holly Bowling, former Dopapod drummer Scotty Zwang, American Babies guitarist and vocalist Raina Mullen, and Nico’s Gun bassist Steve Lyons–will play at the relatively new Times Square venue Sony Hall following Phish’s performance at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, December 30th.
Following a monumental first year as a band that saw them play major festivals like The Peach Music Festival, High Sierra, and LOCKN’, in addition to a slew of sold-out club shows across the country, Ghost Light will return to New York City for their third and final performance of 2018 for this special late-night performance.
With their next-level improvisations, their stellar catalog of original material and their tasteful selection of covers ranging from artists such as Bob Dylan, Radiohead, and beyond, Ghost Light’s impressive on-stage presence has quickly made them one of the most exciting new bands on the live circuit. The musicianship and connectivity displayed on stage are palpable, and it leads to an exciting result that most young bands can only dream of realizing.
The exciting quintet will end their impressive first year with previously-announced appearances at Holidaze, Phil Lesh‘s Deadhead paradise Terrapin Crossroads, The Fillmore Philadelphia in a coveted support slot for The Disco Biscuits, and now, a high-profile Phish late-night show in New York City.
Sony Hall is a new, top-flight music venue in Times Square, located on West 46th Street, that was opened by Blue Note Entertainment Group and Sony back in April. The venue is the former home of The Diamond Horseshoe, a historic vaudeville-era venue and nightclub dating back to 1938, and the classic art deco designs of the venue have mostly been kept intact by the new owners.
Sony Hall is outfitted with Sony gear, with a multi-dimensional audio technology integrated within the venue to create a “spatial audio experience”, essentially an elevated level of surround sound audio which is created by approximately thirty speakers that line the room. Sony Hall is primed to become a major venue in the New York City market, and will certainly be a trusted location for late night shows for years to come due to its proximity to Madison Square Garden.
