Funk Band to Perform at UW Sept. 21

September 15, 2016

A funk band, The Motet, will perform at the University of Wyoming Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. in the lower level of the Wyoming Union. The event is free and open to the public.

The Motet formed in 1998 in Denver, Colo., with a loyal hometown following. The group then went on the road three years ago, and its national fan base has been growing ever since.

Today, the band’s shows sell out from coast to coast at venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Chicago’s Park West, The Independent in San Francisco, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom and Variety Playhouse in Atlanta.

The Motet also has performed at many music festivals, such as Electric Forest, Summer Camp, All Good Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Bonnaroo and Peach Fest.

Band members are Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keyboards), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Gabriel Mervine (trumpet), Lyle Divinsky (vocals) and Drew Sayers (saxophone).
