Brass Bands. The heart of a second line. Maybe the heart of most events in New Orleans. Although they may look a little loose and chaotic, these guys work a lot and can play in minutes. No on street rehearsals. No sound checks. No second chances.They just pick up their instruments and play. Music. Big brass music.
This is Hot 8. They are high in the ranks of brass groups. They get around. They tour. They record. They bring New Orleans music to the rest of the country.
