Tickets on sale now Hot 8 Brass Band Announce ‘Take Cover’ European Tour + video for new single “Love Will Tear Us Apart” – Tru-ThoughtsFor over 20 years one of the most popular and visible funk-style brass bands in community parades and funerals has been the Hot 8 Brass Band. In 1996 sousaphone player Bennie Pete was instrumental in merging two former Fortier High School student groups, the High Steppers and the Looney Tunes Brass Bands, to form the Hot 8. The players grew up together and maintain strong, family-like bonds and regular membership. Most of them were born between 1975 and ’87 in a generation that grew up hearing mainly modern-style brass bands in community functions. The band can be larger than many younger groups often featuring ten members, including three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, bass drum, and snare drum. As is common among some more modern groups, the Hot 8 uses only one reed player and like most of the younger bands, the Hot 8’s funk style is a blend of influences from the Dirty Dozen and Rebirth, with more elements of contemporary r&b, rap, and its local variation, “bounce.” The uniqueness of their sound is mainly due […]
Jenny Lewis had her first taste of stardom when she was a child, appearing in a series of television shows and films and later forming the indie rock band Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett in 1998. Her work with Rilo Kiley drew upon the seediness of her native San Fernando Valley and nearby Hollywood, but she began to expand her horizons when she released a country-tinged solo debut called Rabbit Fur Coat in 2006. Rabbit Fur Coat established Lewis as a formidable singer/songwriter in her own right, and her reputation only grew after the group split, thanks to the rustic Americana of 2008’s Acid Tongue and the slick pop sheen of 2014’s The Voyager. Having ended 2018 on a high note with the announcement of her fourth solo album On The Line—to be released March 22nd on Warner Bros. Records—Jenny Lewis has now unleashed the first taste of her highly anticipated return with the first single, “Red Bull & Hennessy,” now available as an instant grat via pre-order and on all digital/streaming platforms here. Accompanying the single’s release is a visualizer, which can be viewed HERE As the excitement surrounding the release of On The Line ramps up, the album […]
‘If you missed seeing Kate herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing!’ Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2 Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC ONE as one of the most authentic tributes in the world. Their passion for Kate’s music has won over sceptical fans everywhere, challenging perceptions of what a tribute band can be and resulting in sell-out performances across the UK. ‘There can only be one Kate Bush’ says vocalist Mandy Watson, who never attempts to mimic Kate on stage. ‘When you sing her music the characters in the songs take over – they are what you become, not Kate. We’re just fans, amazed at this opportunity to perform this music we love so much’. Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows 40 years ago. ‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!’ – Preston Heyman Running Up That Hill, Wuthering Heights, Hounds of Love, Babooshka, This Woman’s Work, Wow… Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for […]

Puertas: 19:00 Horas Rozalén: 20:00 Horas De un tiempo a esta parte Rozalén se ha hecho omnipresente en nuestras vidas y ha demostrado que sí se puede tener el don de la ubicuidad. Todo ello gracias al éxito de su tercer álbum, “Cuando el río suena…” lanzado en septiembre de 2017 y con el que continúa llenando todos los recintos por los que pasa. Gracias también a su naturalidad y a su gran capacidad para contar historias de esas tan personales que terminan resultando universales. Rejuveneciendo la canción de autor casi sin querer, guitarra en mano, haciendo de cada escenario su casa y convirtiéndose en una más de cada familia. Más de 40.000 ejemplares ha vendido de ese tercer álbum que ha refrendado a una Rozalén que es ya un nombre necesario de la música popular de nuestro tiempo. Capaz, además, de colaborar con cualquiera sin que resulte forzado. Haciendo grandes las pequeñas cosas, convirtiendo en canción todo lo que toca.
