The inimitable Bennie Pete at a New Orleans second line

Bennie Pete, the sousaphonist for Hot 8 Brass Band, will have an official memorial second line on October 2nd, 2021. Mr Pete, who recently passed away, has already had three ad hoc second lines in his honor but this will be the “official” one.

Hot 8 have enjoyed a 25 year run in the New Orleans spotlight and will certainly continue to be a major force in our area’s brass band scene. They’ve been near the top of my brass band power ranking for over a decade and can still create chaos with their live concerts.

We will miss you Mr Pete.
