Playing New Orleans clubs and traditional jazz funerals and street marches, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the Hot 8 Brass Band was propelled into the international spotlight by an appearance in Spike Lee’s film When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts. Since then the band has toured the world with their authentic and totally unique New Orleans street sound. Famous for their blistering, high energy performances – expect them to tear the roof off of the venue on this much-anticipated tour.
