Article Contributed by Crown Jül PR | Published on Thursday, February 14, 2019

For a very special, one-time-only performance, Ghost-Note will take the stage at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans, LA on May 4th to play their critically-acclaimed record Swagism in its entirety.

Upon its release, Okayplayer called the record, "a sprawling kaleidoscope of sound, passion, funk, and might," and charted on the iTunes Jazz charts. Additionally, the Wall Street Journal praised Swagism, "A spectacular 94 minutes of ultra-tight, percussion-forward funk-hop, EDM, rhythm-and-blues and general shredding." Currently, Swagism's title track is currently in heavy rotation on SiriusXM's Jam On station.

Swagism (Live) also promises to welcome numerous special guests from the album – such as Nigel Hall and Eric "Benny" Bloom of Lettuce, Alvin Ford Jr., Brandon "Taz" Niederauer, and more – with a few more surprise special guests from Swagism expected to join.
