New Orleans’ Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band accompanied the release of their fifth album, ‘On The Spot’ (due late March, via Tru Thoughts), with an extensive tour including their biggest London headline yet at The Roundhouse as well as key spots across Europe, Australasia and North America.
Transcending genres and trends, Hot 8 have performed and collaborated with 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…’. 2015’s acclaimed ‘Vicennial…’ exemplified their ability to honour their city’s musical traditions while forging their own powerful legacy – a story that continues apace via the ‘On The Spot’ album and tour.
