Formed over two decades ago, the funk six-piece The Motet have learned to work as an interlocking unit, with each member bolstering one another towards the best creative output. This symbiosis has led to a unique style and cohesive musical chemistry, as seen in the band's immaculate live performances and seamless blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock. With a fervent fanbase in tow, The Motet have sold out shows across the nation, performed six headlining slots at Red Rocks and sets at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Bottlerock, Electric Forest, Bumbershoot, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.

But even after their 20+ years of accolades and recognition, the legendary outfit -composed of Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keys), Garrett Sayers (bass), Drew Sayers (keys and saxophone), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), and new singer Sarah Clarke-are still exploring new sonic ideas and finding new ways to showcase each other’s skill sets. 

The band released their 10th studio album, All Day, in January 2023-an eclectic instrumental voyage threaded by the infectious grooves and immaculate, layered arrangements that The Motet have become known for.

Now with vocal powerhouse Sarah Clarkein tow, the band continues their journey with their new song “Natural Light” and the promise of more to come.

SuperBubble is an ever-expanding funk collective out of Salt Lake City, Utah. With their lyrical and experimental style, fat driving beats and solid grooves, they turn a room into an unapologetically funky dance party. Formed in 2016, they became a quick favorite within the festival circuit and a staple of the local music scene. In May of 2017 SuperBubble released their first self-titled EP, which received positive and enthusiastic reviews. S.L.U.G Magazine wrote, “SuperBubble are one of the biggest surprises I have encountered this year, with one of the most solid debuts I’ve heard out of the Salt Lake scene. This album is a fleshed funk fest of jam, jive and jazz, with a couple of the strongest instrumental tracks I’ve heard for years.” In 2018, they embarked on their first tour of Europe, playing shows all over the Netherlands and France while on their way to the ÉCU Film Festival in Paris. They kicked off 2019 by performing a New Years Eve Bash with Orgōne, and later releasing their debut full-length album “Space Bound” in March. With building momentum and a loyal growing fan base, look out for SuperBubble popping off at a party near you.
