The Motet

The Motet

Headlining on Friday, July 31st
Hailing from Colorado, The Motet is a world-class improvisational funk band that has dedicated more than a decade to the heal-ing powers of funky dance music. Although the early years of the band saw a constantly revolving cast of musicians, the most recent incarnation has been touring the country for the last several years develop-ing a new and unique style of music with roots in funk, afro-beat, disco, electronic music, and soul. This new Motet has quickly gained a reputation for throwing infectious dance par-ties everywhere they go, cre-ating a deep rapport between band and audience.

With the recent release of their 7th album, The Motet has once again showcased their commitment to push-ing the sonic envelope while remaining dedi-cated to the musical traditions that have defined their sound. The band’s decision to call the album The Motet is a reflection that the group has finally fully manifested. The album is a truly collaborative effort, with each member contributing equally to the writing process. In addition, the band spent hundreds of hours in the studio meticulously crafting vintage tones that hearken back to the glory days of funk music. The result is an organic collection of strong interlocking parts and melodies that could only be The Motet.
