If you need hip-hop/Jazz and funk in your life, this one’s for you. Hot 8 brass band have been blessing the world with their uplifting tunes and infectious energy for over two decades now, and this year is no different, they are showing the UK how to really get down to brass.
Formed in 1995 in New Orleans, the band was originally a merge of two brass groups who decided to come together to form Hot 8 brass band. Since then, the line-up of players has switched around, but the authenticity of their music has remained steadfast.
The band are known for embracing the traditional New Orleans brass sound, but mixing it up with some jazz, funk and hip-hop to form their own unique style. Constantly producing original material helps to shape their sound, yet they cannot resist covering some outright classics such as Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ and The Specials ‘Ghost Town’.
Consisting of 8 members and 8 instruments at any live performance, it is guaranteed that the atmosphere will be electric, the venues will be packed and everyone will have the same motive- to party.
