Founders Brewing Company is pleased to present The Motet (Jam, Dance & Progressive Funk from Denver, CO)appearing with special guests The Heard (Horn-driven Funk from Chicago, IL)
Started ten years ago by seasoned drummer Dave Watts as a rotating cast of musical friends, today progressive funk band The Motet has refined their sound and vision into a dynamic and expressive force. The Motet features an astonishingly talented cast of musicians who enjoy a palpable rapport when put together – Dave Watts (drums, musical director), Garrett Sayers (bass), Joey Porter (keyboards), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Jans Ingber (vocals) and horn players Gabe Mervine (trumpet) and Matt Pitts (sax).
Today, The Motet is touring nationwide. Recent months have found the band’s audiences growing exponentially – with sellout shows from coast to coast including Red Rock’s Amphitheatre, Brooklyn Bowl, and many more, and huge festival plays such as Electric Forest, Summer Camp, All Good Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and Arise Music Festival, among others
