The Motet

The Motet

The Motet, a funk/jam outfit founded more than fifteen years ago in Boulder as the Dave Watts Motet, is well known around the country for its celebrated Halloween shows, when the band puts on a "musical costume" and plays songs from a classic artist, ranging from Prince to Michael Jackson. This year the theme is "Mixtape 1975," with the group playing songs from 1975 all Halloween weekend, headlining Thursday and Friday night at the Boulder Theater and Saturday at the Ogden before embarking on an extended fall/winter tour that will focus more on original material. Outside of the somewhat insular jam-band scene, the Motet is still a relative unknown, but that's changing as the band refines its vision. In recent years, the Motet has honed its initial sound -- a somewhat spacey, jammy take on Afrobeat -- into a tight, slick version of what drummer and bandleader Watts calls "classic funk."
