Melbourne International Jazz Festival presents

Spearheaded by Snarky Puppy's multi-GRAMMY-winning percussion duo of Robert "Sput" Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound that catapults funk into the future.

Building on the pioneering foundations laid down by the likes of James Brown, Herbie Hancock, and Sly and the Family Stone, Ghost-Note's music is a kinetic fusion of Afrobeat, hip-hop, jazz, psychedelia and deep-pocket groove.

The group's two studio albums - 2018's Swagism and 2015's Fortified - have earned critical acclaim and popular success around the globe, with both albums hitting #1 on the iTunes jazz charts.

Central to the group's airtight rhythm and vast musicality is the connection between Searlight, Werth and bass wizard and Youtube sensation Dywane "MonoNeon" Thomas Jr.

Live, they perform in the same way the band developed: start with the bass and leave the destination wide open. Prepare yourself for a night of energetic, unforgettable musical madness.

* Tickets also available via Melbourne International Jazz Festival Box Office until 6pm (subject to availability)
