The Motet Get Down At Brooklyn Bowl For Two-Night Tour Closing Run [Recap/Videos]

first_imgThis weekend, The Motet lit up Brooklyn Bowl with two top-notch shows at the well-loved Williamsburg venue. Coming in hot off their Mixtape 1979 Halloween run last week, the band delivered a pair of electrifying performances that had the packed Bowl dancing from start to finish, featuring support from JAW GEMS on night one and Sophistafunk on night 2. The band documented their first day in the Big Apple via Snapchat. You can check out the video recap below:The whole band brought their A-game for the first half of their Brooklyn run, but an honorable mention for the night’s MVP goes to Garrett Sayers (bass) and Drew Sayers‘ (sax) mom, who live-streamed the first hour of the show for all to enjoy. Relive the performance below:The Motet finished up their tour proper–and their 12th show in 11 days–on night two in Brooklyn, holding nothing back for the ecstatic, near-sellout crowd. The final show of the band’s run featured multiple top-notch solos from each member of the band, including a sit-in from Snarky Puppy‘s Jay Jennings for an all-out trumpet battle with the Motet’s Gabe Mervine on Freddie Hubbard’s “Skagly”. You can see clips from the show via the band’s Snapchat below:After a week off, the band returns home to Denver for their traditional 2-night run at The Ogden Theatre in Denver next weekend.
