Hot 8 is a band with stories to tell. Neither fairytales nor melodramas, but simple, often hard truths: the lives and the times of the band’s eight full-time members, including the violent and untimely deaths of several of their peers, and the hurricane devastation and aftermath in their city. In addition to their affinity with their instruments, Hot 8 Brass Band boast a rare depth of vocal talent to illuminate their tales, and ‘The Life And Times Of…’ finds them exploring this further; switching from commanding, funky lead vocals, to rapped verses laid down with passion and skill, to melodic hooks and harmonies - from emotive, gravelly baritones through instinctively whooped falsettos - with abandon.
