[tour] Hot 8 Brass Band visit Europe

June 22nd, 2009 . by zephirnl

Hot 8 Brass Band Tour picJust received a press notice, Tru Thoughts signees Hot 8 Brass Band (myspace) are going to set fire to european stages this summer. For you dutchies, there’s a few appearances at North Sea Jazz, but more important, also a FREE performance on July 9th at Rotown, for North Sea Around Town (last.fm event). The latter (NSAT) is a cool side event to NSJ, especially if like me you couldn’t afford that expensive NSJ ticket but still want to see some hot music. Below is the aforementioned press release and a full list of tour dates:

New Orleans’ phenomenal Hot 8 Brass Band return to Europe for a summer of club and festival gigs (including The Scala in London, Glastonbury, Roskilde, Croatia, Holland and France) and we are really pleased to announce that we will be bringing them back to Brighton. Bridging the gap between the authentic blues, funk sound of their hometown, their unforgettable ‘second liner brass band’ style, and contemporary soul,  jazz and hip hop, this 8 piece have a truly unique sound that never fails to rock a club. With tuba as the bass, a massive stage presence and their party classic cover versions of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” and Snoop Dogg’s “What’s My Name?” this is one hell of a live experience.
“One of New Orleans’ finest” – The Guardian
