The Motet will be paying tribute to the music of one of the most influential rock bands of the last 40 years: THE GRATEFUL DEAD!
Yes, we know what some of you are thinking: How does the Grateful Dead's sound fit into the energy and vibe of a Motet show? Well, with that in mind they are taking the challenge of reworking those epic and timeless songs with the energetic afro-frunk grooves that you all come to expect from The Motet... hence the theme "Funk is Dead!".
In addition to the slamming rhythm section of Dave Watts (drums), Garrett Sayers (bass), Joey Porter (keys), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), and Dan Schwindt (guiatr), they will be brining in three amazing vocalists: Jans Ingber, Paul Creighton, and Kim Dawson. Also, they will be showcasing their fantastic horn players (who's ever played the Grateful Dead with a horn section?!): Gabe mervine (trumpet), Matt Pitts (tenor).
Having sold out every Funk is Dead show they've done so far, we are certain that this going to go down as one of the most exciting and creative Motet performances they've ever put together. Don't miss it!
