The Motet

When: Fri., March 16, 8 p.m. 2018

If you’re still hanging on to your platform shoes, leisure suits and medallion necklaces, it might be in your best interest to check out this show. The Motet are a septet that has been performing since the late ’90s, formed by bandleader and drummer Dave Watts, and their brand of funk features furious horn licks, strutting disco guitars and spacey synthesizers. Just listen to the recording of their 2016 concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in their home state of Colorado and you’ll get a feel for their infectious live energy and their prowess with improvisation. They’re also known for their Halloween shows, where they’ve covered everyone from Prince to the Beatles to (no surprise) Parliament.
