Hot 8 Brass Band, O2 Academy2 Sheffield, Sheffield - 26th February 2020

The Hot 8 gave a great performance and we enjoyed it but felt that the venue was too small. It was packed and I could hardly move my arms never mind dance which is one of the joys of attending a Hot 8 concert. Last time we saw them was at Tramlines on the main stage and it was wonderful to have all that space to dance to the wonderful music. The lack of space was the only reason for the score of 4.

Everyone knows what this band has been through,” says bandleader and sousaphone player Bennie Pete. “Our story is the story of the New Orleans streets. This album just tells those stories to the world.

New Orleans’s own Hot 8 Brass Band has epitomized New Orleans street music for two decades. The band plays traditional Second Line parades, hosted each Sunday afternoon by Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs, infusing their performance with the funk and energy that makes New Orleans music loved around the world. The members of the Hot 8 were born and raised in New Orleans and many began playing together in high school. Today, the Hot 8 combines local performances with national and international appearances. With their third LP, ‘Tombstone’ closely following sister album ‘The Life & Times Of…’ (Nov 2012), Hot 8 have gained widespread coverage and support.
