Get Up with the Hot 8 Brass Band

The Hot 8 Brass Band has been a staple of New Orleans’ music scene for over twenty years. If you don’t already know, the Hot 8’s funk style is a blend of influences from Dirty Dozen and Rebirth (older brass bands), with more elements of contemporary R&B, rap, and its local variation, “bounce.”

To commemorate the 300th anniversary of New Orleans, the Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band released a new video for “Get Up” to honor the rich music culture of their hometown. Featuring scenes from New Orleans, “Get Up” was released on their incendiary ‘Vicennial – 20 Years of the Hot 8 Brass Band’. Join us as we celebrate the 300th birthday of New Orleans, and the storied journey of the Hot 8 Brass Band’s “Get Up”.
