Expect unshakable horn riffs and bubbling bass as the record transports you right into the centre of an electrifying Hot 8 party crowd.

“ [Hot 8] has helped galvanise its community since 2005, captures both the edginess and transcendent beauty of life in its city” – The Wall Street Journal

New Orleans’ Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band release their fifth LP, ‘On The Spot’. In true Hot 8 style, this album pairs hard-hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party-fuelling beats, hooks and grooves, raw funk and charismatic hip hop vocals mix with Big Easy jazz elegance. Expect unshakable horn riffs and bubbling bass as the record transports you right into the centre of an electrifying Hot 8 party crowd.

The title of the new album refers to the glorious, rare moment in a New Orleans parade when the band stops to take a break but keeps noodling with their instruments for the crowd. Vibing, keeping the energy up, when they’re completely in the moment they sync up and the magic happens – a new tune is created: On The Spot. Their fifth LP sees Hot 8 committing this live sound and spirit to record like never before – note the exclamation captured on tape at end of the title track: “Did we just make that up?!”

These 11 tracks have helped the band get through their up and down moments, ‘On The Spot’ honours fallen friends and the city of New Orleans, and showcases new heights achieved after coming back from the deepest lows. “We still break down a lot,” says bandleader and tuba player Bennie Pete, “but now it’s tears of joy. We keep everything in our hearts, but we keep on.”
