Vicennial - 20 Years Of Hot 8 Brass Band
The Hot 8 Brass Band toast their 20th Anniversary in typical roof-raising style, with a best of compilation, Vicennial and a series of live dates to celebrate this significant and incredibly hard-won milestone which comes in the wake of the recent 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
They honour their fallen friends and help to work towards the future of their community by putting their energy into positive projects at home as well as touring. They march together and they play their music - a rambunctious yet elegant and super-tight mix of jazz, funk and hip hop.
Transcending genres and trends, Hot 8’s party rocking sound and indomitable energy have become renowned across the world.
Hot 8 Brass Band
An extraordinary, raw and funky brass band from the streets of New Orleans. The Hot 8 are famous for playing all day in the sun, then hopping to a club gig and playing through the night. But even more than their boundless energy, what makes them special are the sounds they coax from their well-loved, well-worn horns. Just listen to their recordings for a sampling of the rich harmonies and the magical, sweet tone that make it impossible to mistake this band for any other. "Marching music for modern times... incendiary" - The Guardian.
