The Motet
The Motet
Bridging the gap between retro funk & soul, while keeping a focused eye on the future of funk, The Motet blasts off with their latest single, Supernova. The recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, who joined the band in 2016, fans the flames of this already hot band. His sinfully soulful voice and rich lyrics are powerfully prevalent throughout Supernova and light up the performances of the 7-piece funk powerhouse.

The Motet began in 1998 in Denver, Colorado, where the band’s then-rotating cast of musicians amassed an enthusiastic and loyal throng of hometown fans. The Motet took their infectious dance parties on the road about four years ago, and their national fan base has been growing exponentially ever since. Today their shows sell out from coast to coast at iconic venues Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Fillmore in San Francisco, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, Brooklyn Bowl, Chicago’s Park West, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, and Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. A favorite along the festival circuit, The Motet has performed at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, All Good Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Peach Fest and many others.

The Motet are Lyle Divinsky (vocals), Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keyboards), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Gabriel Mervine (trumpet), and Drew Sayers (saxophone).
Dirty Revival
Portland-born DR has evolved from the confines of a basement, to some of Portland’s most sought after stages, and more. DR’s soulful sounds and energetic beats deliver an atmosphere that enraptures the audience in the dirtiest of musical revivals.

Led by the soulful vocals of Ms. Sarah Clarke and enhanced by verses from MC evv'n'flo, DR has emerged on the Pacific Northwest music scene with passion and flare. The unique ensemble intermingles classic and original tracks with a resounding presence, no matter how big or small the venue.

The dynamic, five-piece soul-meets-hip-hop outfit shines on stage, and defines influences from funk- and soul-infused icons of the past. DR has shared the stages with hip hop legends such as Slick Rick, Nappy Roots and Gift of Gab, and have recently started touring the Pacific Northwest and entered the recording studio in early 2015 to produce their first full-length album.
