“Audibly and visually thrilling! The perfect festival band!” – Musicians Union
“The Hot Botz brought a riotous onslaught of high-energy music, including surprising covers, and a heady mix of originals” – Blastarama
The Hot Botz is a dance brass band, made up of trumpets, trombones, sousaphone and drums.
We play dance music, including dubstep, drum and bass, hip-hop, reggae, Mariachi, Balkan and more. Most of our music is original (composed by Joel Cooper), however we do play some choice covers, including tracks by Nero, Bob Marley, Mosca, Madness, Gorillaz and Daft Punk. Everything you hear is instrumented (no electronics).
Hot Botz Brass Band is based in both Manchester / and London (Hot Botz North and Hot Botz South), and on occasion, we work with guest MC’s or singers.
The band was formed in 2009 following a busking tour of Europe (10 capital cities in 30 days!). Since then we have performed at countless club venues, corporate parties, and at festivals around the UK, including Parklike Festival 2016, the Edinburgh Festival, (4 years in a row), where we played at the E4 venue, ‘Udderbelly’ with the ‘Tom Tom Crew’ circus act, and on Stephen. K. Amos’s live stand-up comedy show, (with dancing monkeys!).
In 2010 we brought out our first, self-titled album. In July 2013, (as a 6-piece band with guest MC), we released the single, ‘Tremor’, which we premiered at the Beatherder Festival. We released another single, ‘Free yourself’, (featuring the amazing voice of Kathryn Pemberton), in June 2015. Our second album will be released in October 2017.
Join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, and check out our music on Soundcloud, iTunes, Spotify and YouTube.
Cutting her teeth in the UK underground scene, La Lunatica plays a twist and tangle of a variety of genres including DUB, Reggae, Funk and Soul, Electro Swing, Ghetto Funk, Hip Hop, Bass, and everything in-between.
DJ Stirzaker (Loki DJs, Slamboree) loves nothing more than to tangle you into impossible shapes with an impressively eclectic selection of bass-heavy tracks! He’ll be on deck duty till 2am.
We’re open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm
