THE SOUL MOTIVATORS  +THE FRANCO PROIETTI MORPH-TET

Finding the right groove means digging deep. With a love of vintage soul and funk, The Soul Motivators have mined their musicality to bring you a fresh revival of a retro sound.

Featuring numerous veterans of Toronto’s thriving underground funk scene, this 9-piece rare groove explosion has a rough, tough, soulful flair that motivates you straight to the dance floor.

Out of the ashes of his former band, Kobayashi, Franco Proietti forged a new group, still intent on exploring the nebulous terrain between jazz and hip-hop. What began as a one-man show featuring Proietti on live sax playing over loops, beats, and soundscapes on his laptop has evolved into a band with a full time rhythm section and a rotating cast of musicians lending their sound to the effort. The name of the group, The Franco Proietti Morph-tet, is an indicator not only of the elasticity of the line up, but also of the band’s sound.
