Hot Potato Band is a brass band like no other.
Beginning as street performers, the 10-piece band from Sydney are passionate about reigniting organic performance and acoustic instrumentation, breaking down the barriers between stage and audience, and composing engaging original music that leaves lasting impressions on people around the world.
An energetic amalgamation of catchy music, lyrics, infectious dance moves, interaction and the breaking down of barriers between stage and audience is what sets Hot Potato Band apart. Although difficult to describe their genre, HPB continues to compile their arsenal of songs inspired by Pop, Funk, Ska and Reggae, binding them by the classic instrumentation of New Orleans brass bands.
Presented as part of the Great Southern Nights, a NSW Government initiative to kick start the recovery of the live music industry, delivered through Destination NSW and ARIA.
