Tickets are still available for a concert by New Orleans’ HOT 8 BRASS BAND at the Georgia Southern University Performing Arts Center on Saturday, February 13, 2010 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for patrons and $10 for students.
Fresh from the Superbowl celebrations in Miami and gearing up for Mardi Gras, the HOT 8 BRASS BAND epitomizes New Orleans street music. The band plays the traditional Second Line parades in New Orleans each Sunday afternoon, infusing their performances with the funk and energy that makes New Orleans’ music loved around the world.
The members of the HOT 8 BRASS BAND were born and raised in New Orleans and many began playing together in high school. The HOT 8 has toured Japan, Italy, France, Spain, Finland, England, and Sardinia. The band performs annually at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and at world and jazz festivals across the U.S. and Europe. Spike Lee featured them in his documentary film ‘When the Levee Broke”.
