Hot 8 Brass Band

Legendary New Orleans brass band hit Cambridge Junction for a party

One of the many great acts to emerge from the rich musical landscape of New Orleans, the Hot 8 Brass Band return to Cambridge this month for a gig at the Junction – and if last year’s blistering performance is anything to go by, it’s going to be unmissable.

Mixing up marching brass band elements with a dollop of hip hop, funk and jazz, the group are known for their irresistible covers of well-loved tracks by artists from Snoop Dogg to The Specials. Most famous of all is their joyous take on Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing – the track responsible for getting them a record deal and tipping them over into mainstream success.

Catch them on 13 October, tickets are £20.50.
