The Motet announces Album Release Party at The Fillmore Auditorium


Live Nation is pleased to present THE MOTET at The Fillmore Auditorium on Saturday, January 25.  Special Guests Snarky Puppy, Orgone and DJ Mikey Thunder will open the show.

Show time is 8:00 PM. Doors open at 7:30 PM


The Motet will be hosting their official CD Release Party to celebrate their first album in four years and they have planned an exciting night of funk and psychedelic improvisation. To embellish their line-up they are bringing in some incredible musicians to perform with the band, including Jason Hann (SCI & EOTO) on percussion. They will also be featuring two of their favorite national acts: Snarky Puppy and Orgone, as well as electro-funk genius DJ Mikey Thunder.


Snarky Puppy is one of the fastest rising groups on the International circuit and Orgone’s brand of classic funk has become a recent favorite on the Colorado scene. With so many fantastic musicians in one venue, you can expect some amazing collaborations between all of these groups throughout the night. In addition, they plan to add to the Fillmore’s already expansive lighting setup to create an unforgettable evening of music AND visuals. This is going to be a historic night for The Motet at one of Colorado’s premier venues not to be missed!!


The Motet is also thrilled to re-release the official video for the song ‘123’, filmed to a capacity crowd at the Fillmore Denver last April. As part of their forthcoming album, ‘123’ is an ode to Coloradans and exalts their devotion to spreading their fun and funky sound across the nation. This will be the first album by The Motet to be completely composed by the entire band. Each member has contributed equally to the writing process making this the band’s most focused and inclusive CD yet.


The Motet is: Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keys), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Jans Ingber (vocals), Gabe Mervine (trumpet), Matt Pitts (tenor sax).


Founded and led by drummer Dave Watts, the group began over ten years ago and hasn’t let up since. Featuring complex compositions written and arranged by Watts himself, the music tells a story through syncopated rhythms and melodies.



As music and technology evolve at an astounding rate, so too has The Motet pioneered their unique sound while continuing to defy categorization. With roots in Jazz, Afrobeat, Funk, Salsa and Samba, The Motet keeps their audiences in a dancing frenzy by layering House and Techno rhythms into a style that is uniquely their own.
