Saturdays at the Stations Brings The Motet with guest Euforquestra

The Colorado funk band, The Motet, will be playing at Keystone’s Warren Station this weekend on Saturday, March 15th for another edition of Saturdays at the Station which bring live music to Keystone Saturdays throughout the month of March.  The Motet recently released their 7th album on January 25th and are ready to celebrate by bringing the funk to Keystone.  A bright horn section, layered rhythms, and spunky front man all contribute to the outstanding live performances put on by this must-see band.  Their shows consistently sell out; especially their Halloween Shows in which they play ‘musical costumes’ and perform catalogs from The Talking Heads, Earth Wind and Fire, Parliament, and Prince.  Their unique sound style really encourages people to get funky and move on the dance floor.

The opening band, Euforquestra is sure to start the night off right with their fun and upbeat global dance beat sounds.  Tickets for the show are $18 in advance or just $20 at the door.  Music starts at 8pm and the doors open at 7pm. Stay at a Keystone ski condo in River Run Village to be in the heart of the action and walk to Warren Station, the Keystone Gondola, shops, restaurants, ice rink and more.
