The heavy-hitting, funk-fusion super-group is making their debut at the inaugural High Flyer Festival in Augusta. You can’t fake the funk, and The Motet bring it on hard with a signature style that slaps you in the face with sounds that are fresh and unique. The future of funk is clear on The Motet’s brand new studio album, Totem. The recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, who joined the band in early 2016, fans the flames of this already hot band. The Motet are Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keyboards), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Gabriel Mervine (trumpet), Lyle Divinsky (vocals), Drew Sayers (saxophone).



It starts with a lighter in the dark, held high by a true believer whose favorite band is telling his story onstage. Multiply that by thousands of other fans in that venue and thousands more that same night in venues across America. Each one of those lights testifies to the power of music to touch a listener’s soul. Sister Hazel has been there. For more than 20 years, these five friends have built the kind of musical communication that comes only with time, talent and commitment. From bars and clubs back home in Gainesville, Florida, to theaters, arenas, college campuses and open-air festivals, they’ve seen audiences light up the night like seas of stars. Now you can see them live at the High Flyer Festival as they join Motet to bring you another amazing show!
