After last years epic Whelan's showcase, we are very proud to announce the return of The Hot 8 Brass Band all the way from New Orleans, Louisiana.

People have been swapping CDRs and MP3s to get hold of the track (Sexual Healing) ever since and it has received a remarkable response from DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Rob Da Bank and Coldcut.

The ten members of the Hot 8 Brass Band are all from New Orleans and formed in 1995, they have an unmistakable jazz spirit and a significant story to their work. They recently appeared in Spike Lee’s poignant documentary ‘When the Levees Broke’. The film captures the anger and despair surrounding one of the most horrific natural disasters in US history.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 broke a lot of boundaries between generations and class divides. This is apparent in the sound of The Hot 8 who bring elements of modern, traditional and urban music together and create a unique, new class of brass music.

The Hot 8 are also part of anti violence campaigns and use their vibrant, energetic music to project this message. Tragically four members of The Hot 8 have died, two because of violent acts on the streets of New Orleans. The Hot 8 Brass Band’s struggle has fuelled their passion and they have formed a deeply relevant musical style. This is credible music for so many reasons.

Any radio/press looking for cd's or tracks for their show, pls do not hesitate to get in touch. All other media enquiries pls email and we will get back to you asap.
