Come out and join the Hot 8 Brass Band as they perform a traditional New Orleans second-line parade starting at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, to the Civil Rights Heritage Center at the Natatorium, ending at the Center for History. After the parade there will be an "Artist Talk" so that you all can ask members of the band questions. Hope to see you there!
The Hot 8 Brass Band is a New Orleans based brass band that blends hip-hop, jazz and funk styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds. The band has personified New Orleans street music for more than a decade. Experts at the traditional Second Line parades, the ensemble—tested by the streets and the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina—infuse their performances with the funk and spirit that makes the Big Easy's street music loved around the world.
