"Sly is such an incredible songwriter, really fantastic tunes that stand the test of time," says Motet vocalist Jans Ingber, who will be joined on stage by singer/guitarist Gail Muldrow, a member of the Family Stone for a brief stint in the 70s. "His recordings were so loose and free, with all the warts still on them, which was groundbreaking. We can only hope to do a little justice to the man, his music and his message."
The Motet will get a riot goin' on tonight at the Fox Theatre, 1135 13th Street in Boulder, before bringing their Sly show to Denver for a two-night stand at Cervantes' on Friday and Saturday. The Fox party is 21+ and starts at 8:30 p.m.; admission is $28. For tickets and info, call 303-443-3399 or visit www.foxtheatre.com.
