Snarky Puppy offshoot Ghost-Note – led by percussionists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth – will recreate their entire Swagism LP on May 4 at New Orleans’ One Eyed Jacks.
The special Jazz Fest performance will feature the Ghost-Note touring band (Sput, Werth, bassist MonoNeon, keyboardist Dominique Xavier Taplin, keyboardist Vaughn “V.Keys” Henry, guitarist Peter Knudsen and multi-instrumentalists Sylvester Onyejiaka, Jonathan Mones and Mike Jelani Brooks) as well as a laundry list of special guests.
Additional performers include Nigel Hall and Eric “Benny” Bloom of Lettuce, Weedie Braimah, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Bobby Sparks II, Alvin Ford Jr., Prudence Theauset Sneed and Elise Testone.
“We’re looking forward to revisiting Swagism in its entirety with all the band members but even more excited about recording it live with most of our friends and family featured on the record,” Sput said in a press release.
Tickets for Ghost-Note’s Swagism recreation are on sale now.
