Usually when you think of Colorado, images of mountains, bluegrass and banjos comes to mind. With the funk band The Motet, however, take that stereotype and toss it right out the window. Colorado is about more than a high, lonesome sound.
The band is known for throwing energetic, off-the-hook live shows which include an annual Halloween concert where the band plays (and dresses like) a chosen band all night. Fronted by bandleader and drummer Dave Watts and backed by an all-star list of talented players, The Motet has established itself since 1998 as a powerhouse, merging funk and Afrobeat into a unique, catchy style that can only be truly appreciated live.
Catch them at The Hive Saturday, March 16, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15 if bought in advance, or $18 at the door. Find out more at www.liveatthehive.com.
