Motus: A Musical Mix of Horns, Harmonies, & Grooves
Thursday, August 8, 2019 | Pre-concert activities at 6 pm, live music at 7 pm | Mercerdale Park | FREE
Mōtus is a crew of jazztronauts sent from the stars with a mission to spread the funk. This 7-piece is known for their exciting live performances, infused with grooves that get your head noddin’ and body rockin’. Three vocalists, bass, drums, keys, guitar, and two horns make Mōtus’ sound.
The band performs styles ranging from thought-provoking ballads to backbeat funk and fusion, and their music pulls from contemporary jazz, R&B, neo-soul, and hip-hop groups, including Hiatus Kaiyote, The Internet, Erykah Badu, and Roy Hargrove.
Don’t miss the soulful, sophisticated, and vibrant melodies of Mōtus at Mostly Music in the Park this week.
