World-renowned funk collective Ghost-Note has announced a 26-date 2021 fall outing billed as the What Da Funk Tour.
Ghost-Note features the rhythmic tandem of Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth alongside bassist MonoNeon, keyboardist Dominique Xavier Taplin, saxophonists Jonathan Mones and Sylvester Onyejiaka, and guitarist Peter Knudsen.
The tour will kick off in Denver (9/3) for a special Friday Phish Late Night show at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom: Ghost-Note’s James Brown Soul Revue with special guests Dana Monique (The Voice) and MacKenzie.
From there, the 7-piece outfit will embark on an 11-night run. Joining as support will be future-jazz outfit Sungazer, who will link up with Ghost-Note on the heels of their completely sold-out June tour. This leg is set to hit notable rooms including Cambridge, MA’s The Sinclair (9/7), reopening weekend at Brooklyn Bowl (9/9), and the newly renovated Ardmore Music Hall (9/10) before continuing out to the Midwest to close out the September run.
The Ghost-Note 2021 fall What Da Funk Tour continues Thanksgiving weekend with three highly anticipated Ghost-sta-Phunk dates in Austin (11/26), Dallas (11/27), and Memphis (11/28) as Ghost-Note teams up with NOLA funk staples Dumpstaphunk. The two bands linked up earlier this year at A Fool’s Engagement in Florida and lit the crowd up as both bands combined onstage to close down the festival.
The home stretch will kick off in Nashville (11/30) and take the Southeast by storm with dates in Asheville (12/1), Raleigh (12/2), Charlotte (12/3), Charleston (12/4), and Atlanta (12/5), followed by stops in Florida.
The tour will wrap up with a performance at North Beach Music Festival on December 11th in Miami Beach, FL where Ghost-Note will share the beachside bandshell with an all-star lineup including Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Motet, TAUK, Eric Krasno & The Assembly, Marco Benevento, Jennifer Hartswick & Brendan Bayliss and more.
Please note that the band will be requiring attendees for all shows to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for all shows.
