CES presents Ghost-Note
Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi-Grammy–winning
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 and more—the band pushes 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 7:30 p.m. club-style performance includes bar service and a menu of appetizers and desserts. Immediately following the performance, CES and WFWM-FM present the Offstage Series With WFWM, when Chuck Dicken joins the artists onstage for a lively discussion with the audience.
Tickets are $17 for adults and $15.30 for youth under 18. Member, military and group discount rates are also available. For more information or to order tickets please visit CES’s webpage at ces.frostburg.edu or contact the CES box office at 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137.
