You don’t stay in the business for almost twenty years by mistake — just ask the Motet.
Colorado’s beloved funksters wrapped up a thunderous Friday night at Red Rocks last week with support from Vulfpeck and Medeski, Martin, & Wood. It was The Motet’s very first time headlining Red Rocks, a slot that they’ve certainly worked hard for and truly earned over the last decade.
The Motet eagerly took their fans on a whirlwind of a funkfest, featuring lots of new music off of their recently debuted album Totem (produced by Eric Krasno of Lettuce/Soulive). Trey Anastasio Band trombonist Natalie Cressman also joined the horn section for the entire show and Big Gigantic leading man Dominic Lalli joined his former mates during a "Nemesis" that featured a jam of David Bowie's "Fame" which you can watch here >
WHY WE'RE EXCITED
The Motet is more than just a funk band. They're soulful, catchy, and irresistibly danceable. They exude an energy that electrifies and will no doubt turn Fairfield into a funk'd up dance party. This is one of those bands that you don't need to know their music going into it. They take you away with every song played. The horns raise the roof right off the ceiling and backup singers bring you right into a 70s disco.
If you've come to The Warehouse to see The New Mastersounds, Kung Fu, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Galactic, or The Soul Rebels, you'll be disappointed if you miss this show.
