Emblazoned with the heart and soul of modern New Orleans jazz, Hot 8 Brass Band return to the scene of last year’s sold out vicennial show. Their Band on the Wall show marks the end of a 12-date stint in the UK before heading back to their weekly residency at The Howlin Wolf in their native city, where they also perform at traditional funeral marches. For their tour shows, you can expect every note to hit all corners of the venue, blasting any cobwebs away with funky horns and hip hop rhythms, with their cover of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ an unbridled treat for the senses.

Thu 4 Aug, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JZ. Tel: 0161 834 1786 7.30pm, £22, www.bandonthewall.org
