Gettin’ Ready to Funk Things Up with The Motet

Looking for funk and dance in equal measures? Look no further than The Motet, the septet from Denver entering their fourth decade in the business. These guys will keep you moving and grooving non-stop.

Tonight (Thursday, January 16) is a special show featuring Joey Porter & Friends celebrating Terrapin X: Terrapin Care Station Turns 10! Porter and bandmate Garrett Sayers will be joined by Jeff Franca (Thievery Corporation) on drums and Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power) on guitar and vocals, with support from Shakedown Street.

Then the Electric Dream Tour cranks back up Friday in Salt Lake City, and they’re off to the races in the Northwest. They’ve got a pair of shows at Pink Garter Theater in Jackson and two at Crystal Bay Casino Lake Tahoe with ALO. After a short break, The Motet will hit the Southeast, including a pair at Terminal West in the ATL before heading north for a show with The Disco Biscuits and two with TAUK in the mix, closing with Brooklyn Comes Alive.

The Motet will join funkmates Lettuce for Lettuce RAGE!fest at the Orpheum Theatre during Jazz Fest and then headline a Red Rocks show with Turkuaz and Rubblebucket!
