Hot 8 Brass Band

The New Orleans' brass band returns to Brighton Dome with their rambunctious mix of hip hop, funk and inimitable Big Easy jazz.

Hot 8 transcend genres and trends, combining the traditional jazz heritage of their hometown with more modern styles, including elements of funk, hip hop, rap, and its local variation, 'bounce'. Since their 20th anniversary in 2015, the group has sold-out shows at Brighton Dome and London's Roundhouse, won at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, and headlined a string of festivals including Glastonbury's West Holts stage and Secret Garden Party.

Their upcoming tour will honour the recent passing of Bennie Pete, beloved co-founder and sousaphone player, and celebrate his greatest wish 'that New Orleans culture lives on for future generations'
