Hot Take

Some of the finest horn players on the scene pumping out hits like you’ve never heard them before. 

The 8-piece band was born out of the desire to give high quality, high energy performances, whilst also delivering an edge and a vitality not available elsewhere. Playing songs in a variety of styles, from New Orleans Mardi Gras to Salsa to Afrobeat, they guarantee to not only get everyone on their feet but also to deliver something you will not have experienced before! 

Members of the band have extensive experience playing with some of the best in the industry; from pop legends Nile Rodgers, Rudimental, and Rick Astley, to jazz stalwarts such as Callum Au, Tina May, and Wynton Marsalis. You can frequently find members of the band on your TVs as well as on shows such as the Last Leg, Good Morning Britain and even at the BBC Proms. This wealth of experience gives the band a unique sound that is guaranteed to get audiences taking note. 

Hot Take offer bespoke arrangement services so if you have a specific song request or would like a whole new show created with a specific theme in mind then please get in touch.
