The Hot Potato Band

We’re livening up the Official Welcome Function with the inimitable musical sounds of the Hot Potato Band. This vibrant 11-piece brass band has a unique and energetic style and they’re sure to put a smile on your face. The Hot Potato Band have become one of the most celebrated street and stage performance groups in Australia. From intimate venues to large scale festivals, the group has successfully captured the energy and interaction of their street performances and have perfectly integrated it into their stage show.

The Hot Potato Band combines world influences such as ska, blues, afro-Cuban pop, reggae and folk into a New Orleans-inspired brass band with a distinctly Australian edge. The talented crew will bring their dynamic sounds to the Exhibition Precinct of NHC 2017 this November!

The Official Welcome Function is a great opportunity to renew old friendships, make new acquaintances, enjoy local food, wine and music, and celebrate the achievements of 2017.
