Hot 8 Brass Band are playing tonight and tomorrow at The Sugar Club. 

A few years back, Hot 8 Brass Band released a cover of Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing. Everybody loved it. They had to love it. How could anyone not love something that sounded like the best Mardi Gras you always wanted to go to but never could?


The New Orleans eight piece have capitalised on that success by following it up with raucous albums (of covers and originals), joyous live shows, and a stage presence that will make you feel like you’re dancing in the sweltering heat of a Louisiana street party.

They’re playing at Dublin’s Sugar Club tonight and tomorrow so if you’re about and you want to have the best time watching one of the best live acts you’ll ever see, then scoop up your tickets now. And be quick. The secret’s out and Ireland already loves the Hot 8.

To get to The Sugar Club from Generator Dublin, take the 145 bus from Arran Quay eight stops to Dublin City South. Ask at reception if you'd like help.
