about

Ghost-Note’s sound has evolved to a state that can best be described as ‘conscious funk’ – an elaborate and sonically powerful surge of the tremendous talents that each of the players provides, with the bandleaders leaning back and letting the band go. The core lineup is a rotating cast of serious cats - all stretching to meet the expanding nature of the band.

Robert Sput Searight - drums, rhodes, organ, & auxiliary keys
Nate Werth - all percussion
Anthony “AJ” Brown - bass guitar & key bass
Sylvester Uzoma Onyejiaka II - bari sax, tenor sax, & flute
Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas Jr.- bass guitar, guitar, and baritone guitar
Jonathan Mones - alto sax & flute
Michael Jelani Brooks - tenor sax & flute (A2 & A6)
Xavier Taplin - auxiliary keys & vocals (A4, B2, B3, & B9)
