Hot 8 Brass Band
Brass Band is a New Orleans based brass band that blends
hip-hop, jazz and funk styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds.
Transcending genres and trends, Hot 8 have performed and collaborated
with a wide range of artists, from Lauryn Hill to Mos Def to the Blind
Boys of Alabama and were nominated for a Grammy in 2013 for their second album ‘The Life and Times Of…’. In the live arena, Hot 8 Brass Band
continue to win over audiences with their old school street brass
approach, fusing it with some harder, funkier currents in the process
and juxtaposing magnificent originals with fresh versions of Snoop Dogg,
Stevie Wonder, The Specials or Basement Jaxx.
“Hot 8 have become an appealing metaphor for their home city’s hope and vitality”
