Downtown Block Party: Ghost-Note with Fuzz Band

Saturday, July 20, 2019

Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi Grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound. With an expansive roster of next-level musicians — representing members of Prince, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Marcus Miller, Toto, Justin Timberlake, and more — the band is pushing funk music into the future, building on the uplifting, pioneering foundations laid out by the likes of James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone and infusing their fresh take with tastes of afrobeat, hip-hop, psychedelia, world folklore, and more. The opening band is Hampton's own The Fuzz Band, whose sound is a fusion of urban & rock music. The band met and formed while attending Hampton University. Locally, the band has won multiple awards as Best R&B, Best Live Performer, and Best Song & Album recipients. Nationally, The Fuzz has gotten national attention in multiple magazines.
