Hot 8 music is feel good music music with a message. Its life music. Hot 8 band leader, Bennie Pete
Can't Nobody Get Down, out 27th May, is the new EP from New Orleans Hot 8 Brass Band, coinciding with an extensive and largely sold-out UK and Ireland tour (their second visit in six months, in celebration of their recent 20th Anniversary). This EP sees the Grammy-nominated band unleashing two brand new tunes alongside a live favourite and two new remixes of their iconic Sexual Healing cover, including one by popular reggae/dub producer Wrongtom.
The EPs title track is an original tune that has been tearing up the streets and clubs of New Orleans; freshly recorded, this punchy Hot 8 future classic celebrates their fine tradition of getting down better than anyone else, and is sure to raise roofs on the upcoming tour.
