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/

It’s been a minute so we’re writing to check in. Van Ghost is currently gearing up for summer festival season and writing songs for our 3rd record currently titled “Can I Call You Karma?”. We are evaluating life and music as we know it so we can come with a rock and roll fury for you sooner than later. That’s it for now our loves. Talk soon!

Sometimes in art music and life you out pace or under estimate your vision to have everything work out exactly how and when you want it to. Eventually it all catches up and balances out the way it was meant to be. After years of time spent growing as a band in our live performances, songwriting, and studio work, today we are very proud to finally release the full length label debut by Van Ghost, “The Domino Effect“ from our label Dustimmoff Music.
This record is about certain stories and time periods in our lives and the people that have graced those stories with their love and at times drama. No matter how you spin it though, it all truly comes from the heart. And it’s coming from a real place baby, so please just don’t take it away… We hope you dig it and love you for your patience and continued support of the Ghost. Thank you a million times cause the best is yet to come!
“The Domino Effect“ is AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD NOW, directly from our Bandcamp page, on iTunes, or any of your preferred online outlets.
