Having made their name playing on the streets and in the clubs of their home town, The Hot 8 Brass Band has been lauded by the likes of BBC 6 Music and The Guardian. Earlier this year they played a sold out gig at the Roundhouse in London following the release of their latest album On The Spot which came out in April.

The band formed in 1996 when two former Fortier High School student groups, the High Steppers and the Looney Tunes Brass Bands, combined.

Tickets cost £15 in advance before fees and are available online and from the venue. Doors open at 9pm.www.hot8brassband.com
