Please enjoy this free download of Van Ghost‘s Viva La Ghost Unit EP – Live in Mexico on 2/22/14.
(or click the image)
During this show (where the stage breathtakingly backed up to the Atlantic Ocean) I found myself in what I was calling the Bermuda Triangle of awesome duos. To my right was The Angel Pipe Choir: Jennifer Hartswick & Natalie Cressman Music. To my left was the guitar duo: Grant Tye (Shreddy Krueger) and (from the The Nth Power) Nicky Cakes Cassarino. Behind me was The Motet‘s rhythm section: Garrett Sayers & Dave Watts playing with The Ghost Unit for their first time ever. We were having fun.
I think these 3 songs best musically describe what it is like with The Ghost Unit these days and exemplifies the set from that night, showcasing everyone doing what they do best at different points. We hope you dig it and if you do, thank you. Listen, share or download for free and never miss a Sunday show.
The Ghost Unit Loves You and so do I – MHB

The struggle is real but the dream is alive and well w/ the Ghost Unit… we’re going international this February!
Two shows just added to the schedule:
– On Feb 9th – In gorgeous pacific coast town of Costa Ballena, Costa Rica we make our triumphant return to BEST FEST. This show will be an afternoon acoustic trio set w/ long time Ghost Unit collaborators Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power) and Nashville’s songwriting super star Chris Gelbuda! On the beach, in the jungle and completely stripped down and raw!
– On Feb 22nd – At the Hard Rock Hotel – Mayan Riviera (Cancun) the FULL band heads down to Mexico to support our friends String Cheese Incident for the: INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT! This very well may the nastiest Ghost Unit line up ever assembled featuring permanent band mates Jennifer Hartswick/Natalie Cressman (TAB) and Grant Tye… w/ a little help from our friends Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power) and Dave Watts/Garret Sayers (The Motet). This set promises to be a full blown funky rock and roll show and is the last set on the main stage before SCI closes out the entire festival.
To say we are excited is a major understatement. See you south of the border y’all!! Viva La Ghost Unit!

That’s right y’all. The Ghost Unit will make it’s triumphant return to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park over Halloween weekend 2013 to join the bill at String Cheese Incident’s Suwanee Hulaween! We toured as an acoustic trio with JHA and Gelbuda years ago w/ Bill Nershi and are really looking forward to joining the shennanies all weekend. Other acts confirmed so far include: STS9, Big Gigantic, Emancipator, Conspirator, Steve Kimock & Friends, Brock Butler, Future Rock, “Suwannee Bluegrass Surprise” set (who do you think it’ll be?) and a slew of others coming soon.
Most importantly there will be a burning man meets electric forest art installation called SPIRIT LAKE PROMENADE that is SURE to blow your mind. Check out more details about that at: http://suwanneehulaween.com/
