Funk favorites The Motet continued a Texas run with fellow Coloradans Eminence Ensemble on Saturday night at Deep Ellum Art Co in Dallas.
After jumping in with Eminence Ensemble for a song, The Motet drummer/founder Dave Watts led his airtight unit—filled out by Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Garrett Sayers (bass), Joey Porter (keys), and Drew Sayers (saxophone)—through an energetic headlining set featuring special guest singer/guitarist Colin Miller.
