December 2022

For a little over two decades, The Motet have cultivated a fervent fanbase through immaculate live performances and a seamless blend of funk, jazz, soul, and rock. This unique style and cohesive musical chemistry have led to sold-out shows across the nation - including six headlining slots at Red Rocks and sets at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Bottlerock, Electric Forest, Bumbershoot, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.

Grateful Web is streaming the upcoming Garcia Birthday Band New Year's Run at the Mission Theater in Portland Oregon. Both shows are sold out but will be live streamed from the Mission Theater. The live stream from each night will be hosted on the Grateful Web's YouTube channel and the URL can be found here: ( We have also placed the streaming links right here.  Happy New Year to you all!

The week between Christmas and New Year's Eve is always a quiet one in New York City, when tourists stay home and residents venture elsewhere to visit friends and family. But the typical seasonal slow-down was nonexistent inside the walls of Williamsburg's Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday night, where the crowd buzzed with anticipation for The Felice Brothers' first show at the venue since January 2020.

All-star collaborations for NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE: NASHVILLE’S BIG BASH, a star-studded entertainment special hosted by country music stars and GRAMMY®-nominated artists Jimmie Allen and Elle King and ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT’s Rachel Smith were announced today. The celebration to ring in the new year will air LIVE from Music City, Saturday, Dec. 31 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT; 10:30 PM-1:30 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.
