The Motet plays Earth Wind & Fire @ the Fox Theatre

The Motet is extremely excited to announce that for Halloween 2010 they will be performing the music of the most successful and influential funk band from the 1970’s: Earth, Wind, & Fire. This promises to be far and away the pinnacle of The Motet’s increasingly popular Halloween tribute performances. With a 13 piece band featuring a trio of lead vocalists, 4 horns, 2 guitars and percussion, these shows will undoubtedly rise to the historic standards that Earth, Wind & Fire have brought to their live concerts.

Showcasing percussion laden funk grooves, syncopated horn lines, gospel influenced vocal harmonies, psychedelic jazz-rock improvisation, and multiple top 10 hits, The Motet’s celebration of the music of Earth, Wind & Fire is sure to go down as the most mind blowing dance party in the history of the band’s epic Halloween performances. This show is not to be missed!

BoomBox Lines Up April Tour Dates

boxWith excitement continuing to develop around their upcoming release, BoomBox has added several tour dates to their April calendar. The psychedelic trip-hop brainchildren Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux are prepping the final mixes for the new album downriverelectric and giving audiences glimpses of what is to come from the groundbreaking duo. Blending decades of musical evolution across all genres with an inherent musical inclination, BoomBox carries the torch for the live electronica scene.

BoomBox hails from the legendary Muscle Shoals, AL; the last bastion of hope for towns with profound connections to decades of musical contributions. The BoomBox vibe is built on the rich history and influence of the region imparted on Randolph and Godchaux. Incorporating live DJ’ing with guitars and vocals in real time, the duo drops body-shaking rhythms into textured guitar phrases and hypnotic rhythms. Hitting the stage with unparalleled energy and a vast musical catalog, the BoomBox live experience is thoroughly unique and refreshing.

BoomBox’s highly anticipated April tour gets underway on the 9th, as the innovative DJ / singer-songwriter / guitarist duo returns to Boulder, CO for a performance at the Fox Theatre. BoomBox has penned additional stops in St. Louis, Chicago, Boston, Albany, New York City, and Baltimore and will include the Sunsation Festival at Copper Mountain and The Early Bird Festival in Garrettsville, OH. Providing a unique concert experience, iClips.net will stream the live performance of the April 16th show at the Old Rock House in St. Louis, MO on their website. The tour concludes May 2nd in Knoxville, TN.

News you can use :

- Furtado did a 3 week tour opening for Gregg Allman & Friends this spring.

- Last year's Funzalo release, THESE CHAINS, is a finalist in the Indie Acoustic Project's "Best CDs of 2004" Awards (see www.indieacoustic.com for more info).

- #5 most added at Americana radio

"There are times on Tony Furtado's new live solo cd, BARE BONES , that you'd swear there are two guitarists."
- Traverse City Record Eagle

"'The live solo show is basically what you hear on the album.  I'll do solo stuff based around old folk tunes, and I intersperse banjo in there.  It becomes this American roots vibe.'  That vibe has made the just-released BARE BONES CD a hit with audiences and has kept Furtado on the road, where he revels in his craft."
- The Grand Rapids Press

"Blending acoustic slide guitar with woodsy tales of the everyday, Furtado's mix of technical virtuosity and warm storytelling soul was a perfect warm-up for Allman and his friends."
