16th Dec sees the release of the lead single from Hot 8 Brass Bands newly announced 5th album On The Spot, which will follow in Spring 2017

In true Hot 8 style, this single pairs hard-hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party-fuelling beats, hooks and grooves. Working Together was brought into the repertoire by bass drummer Harry Swamp Thang Cook, who felt the Frankie Beverly and Maze song tapped into the essence of the band. The lyrics say, We got to start learning how to do our thing and give each other some respect. We got to learn to give, Im telling you like it is. Lets work together and make this happen, says bandleader Bennie Pete. ... We felt we had to cover it. We all feel deeply about the meaning and the message.

Original tune Keepin It Funky brings a buoyant tuba bassline and winning trombone licks. People like that funky groove, says Pete, of the new track which blossomed into life on recent tours and also hit big with home crowds on their return. With these new recordings, Hot 8 capture what they can of this spirit.
