Rock with The Hot 8 combines the traditional with the contemporary – Brass band covers of classics such as ‘Sexual Healing’ and Snoop Dogg’s ‘What’s My Name?’ along with original material by Hot 8. This album is a prime example of how traditional styles can be brought to new audiences; The Hot 8 bring an instant ‘cool’ to Brass Band music whilst maintaining its’ credibility as one of New Orleans greatest treasures.
This album is set to put post-Katrina New Orleans back in the public eye for the right reasons, showing that in contrary to recent media speculation, Hurricane Katrina did not wash the heart out of New Orleans music, and that it is as prevalent as ever.
