Acclaimed jazz/hip-hop/funk/world-fusion outfit Ghost-Note will gather some talented friends for a very special tribute to Prince at New York’s Sony Hall on Monday, December 30th. The show will take place late-night after Phish at MSG.
Between bassist MonoNeon, saxophonist Sylvester Onyejiaka, and keyboardist Dominique Xavier Taplin—all former Prince collaborators—the Purple One’s pedigree is always well-represented with Ghost-Note. For this guest-filled, late-night Ghost-Note & Friends Play Prince blowout, the insanely gifted outfit led by percussionists Nate Werth and Robert Sput Searight (Snarky Puppy) will dive headfirst into the beloved Prince catalog to help NYC party like it’s (almost) 2020.
Joining Ghost-Note as the “Friends” portion of the bill will be Trey Anastasio Band trumpeter/vocalist Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), D’Angelo and The Vanguard singers Rojo “REDD” Lavoe and Ahrel Lumzy, and Cory Henry/Childish Gambino vocal collaborator STOUT. Hartswick will be pulling double-duty during the Phish run, as the TAB trumpeter and vocalist will also be playing with The Disco Biscuits bassist Marc Brownstein’s Star Kitchen the night before, Sunday, December 29th, also at Sony Hall.
The Ghost-Note crew has been on a serious tour grind in 2019. The funky collective has been electrifying audiences around the globe all year long, and is currently making their way around Europe on a 2-week run. When they return to the States, Ghost-Note will join Lettuce on their Elevate Tour in November and link up with Dopapod for a two-night run in late December.
