“This album grooves like no other I’ve heard in a long time!” – LP Schooled
“Every track pays big homage to the great dance movements of decades past… Hell, if you just wanna get in your car, put on your loudest pair of sunglasses and just feel cool for no damn reason, Hot Plate is your answer.” – Divide and Conquer
“The 8-piece ensemble has matured their sound and is out to fill dance floors across the globe” – Skeme Richards, Nostalgia King
The Wednesday Night Jam took off when a group of strangers picked up their instruments and went parading through downtown Calgary. Sharing a love of improvised music, funk, soul, disco, afrobeat, and reggae, the Jam sparked a movement which has evolved into an 8-piece dance party called FREAK MOTIF.
Their live show is inspired by the spontaneity of their weekly jam sessions. Someone yells out a key, the percussion lights up, the band settles into a groove, The Weapons of Brass Destruction pierce the air with a melody, then vocalists and rappers step to the stage with the verse and a hook.
An upbeat and high-energy show that balances rock n roll showmanship, strong musicianship, and relatable songwriting. Their music is positive and dancey. Come be part of it
