CARLSBAD, Calif. (October 17, 2018) – Mountain Dew® and TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today that the popular Denver-based, seven-piece funk band The Motet will headline the Dew Tour concert on Saturday, December 15 at the Riverwalk Center in downtown Breckenridge, Colorado. The all-ages show will start at 7 p.m. as part of the festivities around the annual winter ski and snowboard competition and festival taking place at Breckenridge Resort December 13-16. General admission tickets for The Motet concert are now on sale at DewTour.com and are $40.
A concert or an album can unlock another world, if you let it. The Motet respect and revere this time-honored phenomenon. Fusing fiery funk, simmering soul and improvisational inventiveness, the highly entertaining band—Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keyboards], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Parris Fleming [trumpet] and Drew Sayers [saxophone]—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.
"We love every chance we get to play in the mountains of our home state, and we really love Breckenridge and The Riverwalk Center. The ability to bring our party to our mountain neighbors gives a chance to feel rooted and inspired by the place we call home, and we are stoked to be making our Dew Tour debut!" said Lyle Divinsky, lead singer of The Motet.
