The Hot 8 Brass Band!
New Orleans’ Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band will be returning to Europe in February Protected content . Mixing an old school street brass approach with funkier currents and hip hop vocals, Hot 8’s magnificent originals are juxtaposed with fresh versions.
Wherever they are, Hot 8 channel the unique, undiluted energy of the New Orleans Second Line parades and, as they bring the iconic Mardi Gras spirit, this tour will be a bigger party than ever.
“We are privileged to tour and to tell the stories of life in our city, to keep alive the memories of our band members who have passed, as well as all the musicians who have gone before”, says band leader and tuba player Bennie Pete. “We can’t wait to share this new music and party with our fans, who help us to keep pushing ourselves on”.
Mixing an old school street brass approach with funkier currents and hip hop vocals, Hot 8’s magnificent originals are juxtaposed with fresh versions of Joy Division, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder, The Specials and Basement Jaxx (and of course their anthemic take on Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”, which recently re-launched with a new video that has had 2.5 million YouTube hits).
