ABOUT MOTET ON THE MESA
2-DAY FESTIVAL AT TAOS MESA BREWING MOTHERSHIP • TAOS, NEW MEXICO
The Motet is thrilled to announce the inaugural Motet on the Mesa Festival at Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership. The line-up includes The Motet (2 nights), Break Science, Sunsquabi, The Suffers, Tauk, Organ Freeman and Mama Magnolia. Motet on the Mesa is an intimate festival that includes 2 days of music and starlight camping at vintage trailer hotel, Hotel Luna Mystica, just steps away.
Bridging the gap between retro funk & soul, while keeping a focused eye on the future of funk, The Motet has been touring in support of their latest set of singles, Supernova and Get It Right. The recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, who joined the band in 2016, fans the flames of this already hot band. His sinfully soulful voice and rich lyrics are powerfully prevalent throughout the newest batch of singles and light up the performances of the 7-piece funk Powerhouse. The Colorado-based band just sold out Red Rocks for the second time this past June.
Fusing fiery funk, simmering soul, and improvisational inventiveness, the Denver, CO seven-piece have continually provided an escape for listeners over the course of seven full-length albums since 1998, including their latest release Totem and with an upcoming 2018 release.
