VIDEO: Ghost-Note funks up The Livery

Led by the Grammy-winning rhythm duo Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note delivered a powerful punch of funk to The Livery in Benton Harbor on Saturday night.

With seven band members crammed onto the small stage at The Livery, the crew of world-class musicians promptly induced a dancing storm of mostly unreleased, original music that didn’t stop until almost midnight. Acting as bandleader, Searight often directed solos within a song, engaged with the crowd and provided entertaining general commentary throughout the night.

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter duo Dauzat St. Marie entranced the crowd with some soulful acoustic stylings to open the show. Highlights included a new cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and their own “Common Ground.”
