*A message from Gabe*
As some of you may have heard, I will be leaving The Motet this month. The last eight years of performing with these guys have taught me so much about loving music and loving life. We’ve become family, and the people I’ve met along the way are the absolute best! The opportunity to meet true music lovers all over the country has given me so much faith in this art form and has been such a source of inspiration. I will be continuing to collaborate with The Motet family all the time and couldn’t be more excited for what this new year will bring them with Chicago native Parris Fleming taking over the trumpet chair for me. All the love to anyone I’ve met, partied with, jammed with, talked philosophy with and shared the stage with along the way.
*From the Band*
As you just read, Gabe will be taking a break from the road. We’re so sad to see our brother go, but love him and support him in his transition. We could not be more grateful for what he has brought, not only to us as a band and as people, but to the whole of the music community. We can’t wait to see what his talents and heart bring to the world in the future. Gabe will be passing the trumpet torch onto the incredibly talented Parris Fleming. We are so excited about this new chapter of The Motet, as well as future collaborations with both Parris and Gabe. We hope to see you tonight to celebrate our brother Gabe in Fort Collins before Parris takes over full time!
