The Motet brings Mixtape 1977 to the Midwest

For the first time ever, The Motet took to the road for Halloween. They brought their brand new Mixtape 1977 to the midwest for a four night run through, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, ending on Halloween night at the Park West in Chicago for a sold out show.

Next up, The Motet is heads east for a show at The Paradise Rock Club in Boston and a two night run at The Brooklyn Bowl in NYC, before returning to Denver for their Hometown Hustle.

We just had an EPIC weekend at Mishawaka Amphitheatre with The California Honeydrops. With both nights sold out we couldn’t be more grateful for our amazing Colorado fans! We look forward to seeing all you beautiful people in Denver this November!

Tix to our Hometown Hustle at The Ogden Theatre 11/13 & 11/14 here.

Red Rocks 2015 Recap

September 23rd, 2015|


We’re excited to announce we’ll be ringing in 2016 with a very special New Year’s Eve show in Atlanta at The Variety Playhouse on December 31.  Tickets, including a limited number of VIP tickets, go on sale to The Motet Fan Club on Friday, August 14 at 2pm EDT, and to the general public on Friday, August 21 at 2pm EDT, at www.themotet.net.

The New Years shows have become a sort of “spectacle.”  Last year, the band sold out the historic Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon.  Watch a video from last year’s New Year’s show HERE.

For the first time ever, we’re taking our Halloween tradition on the road, featuring a brand new “Mixtape 1977” set. 1977 was a big year in American Culture. The first Apple computer was introduced, Jimmy Carter became president, Atari released its 2600 gaming system, and Star Wars thundered onto the big screen changing the course of Hollywood history. Not to mention, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Marvin Gaye all released groundbreaking Top 10 albums….

Catch #Mixtape1977 in Des Moines, IA on October 28th, Minneapolis, MN on October 29th, Milwaukee, WI on October 30th, and Chicago, IL at the Park West on Halloween night. These special performances have become a beloved Halloween tradition in our home state of Colorado and we’re psyched to bring them to the Midwest. Come prepared to get down!

The Motet hits the Studio!

We kicked off May with a bang  –  two raging shows at The Maison and The Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans during the second week of Jazz Fest. We stuck around NOLA the following week to get rolling on our next album.  We recorded at The Parlor, and brought in Eric Krasno to help produce.  We’re excited how it’s coming along and will keep you posted as we near its early 2016 release!
