Luther gave them the vibrancy and talent they needed just at the right time. He soon became known as Ariel Bender and played on probably their best known album - "The Hoople"
The Ariel Bender Band - formed in 2005 - brings to you that vibrancy and talent, performing all the hits from Mottís repertoire including:
