Band Review: The Big Motif

The Big Motif is a funky trio out of Denver, Co comprising of

Tony Pacello – Guitar, Vocals

Hunter Roberts – Bass

Jeff Jani – Drums, Percussion

Though I was not able to catch The Big Motif play live at this year’s THC Music Fest, I was able to get a hold of their new 5-track, self-titled E.P. and I was VERY impressed.

They have an awesome feel to their music. It ranges from funky breaks to soulful blues riffs, to psychedelic rock solos. That combination makes for an awesome ride.

Tony Pacello’s vocals and lyrics are the perfect accent and backdrop to groove to over this self-proclaimed Experimental/Psychedelic/Funk band’s music.

One of the reasons I like these guys so much is because this band does soul the right way…they get down! It’s easy to get lost in The Big Motif’s vibe.

All in all this band has an incredible presence to their music that makes me very sad I missed them live. If you ever happen to get the opportunity, don’t make the same mistake I did.

Check out The Big Motif at their website or myspace.

Springdale Quartet Band Review @SpringdaleQ4


I had the pleasure of seeing Springdale Quartet at this year’s THC Music Fest in Alma, Colorado and they absolutely killed it! The Quartet consists of:

Chase Terzian- Keys/Organ/Vocals

Ben Waligoske- Guitar/Vocals

Greg russell- Drums/Vocals

Jordan Roos- Bass/Vocals


Their sound is ridiculously funky, soulful and a pleasure to listen to, especially live! Their Myspace describes them as Funk, Blues and Jazz. I’d say that’s pretty accurate, but you’ve really got to see for yourself.


As far as Jam bands go, these guys stick out. They have a great feel, and if you listen closely you can catch these crazy time signature changes that they seem to love playing around with, especially on their current eight-track, self titled, mostly live recorded album…it’s awesome.

All of the members are extremely talented musicians and their attention to detail is literally felt in their music. Like they say, if you don’t know what to call it, it’s Jazz, and these guys would definitely fit into that category..then throw in an incredibly soulful blues lick.. These guys are like a lovely kick to the face that’ll make you ask for more. All in all a great grab for anybody looking for something new and something funky.
