New Orleans' Hot 8 Brass Band are longtime friends of Tipitina's, and have participated in Tipitina's Music Office Co-Op since that program's inception. Now they're nominated for a Grammy award for Best Regional Roots Music Album, for 2013's "The Life & Times Of…The Hot 8 Brass Band." This group has surmounted the types of obstacles that would derail many others, and their music just keeps improving. We say they're winners no matter what; root for them during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards broadcast on January 26.
