Yes indeed!It’s a block party and you’re invited for free. That’s right, no cover charge for one of Boston’s top Caribbean party bands. Widely considered to be the no. 1 dance band on the East coast that performs reggae in true authentic style, Hot Like Fire has been nominated three times for the Boston Music Awards and is the 2011 winner of the New England Urban Music Award for Best Caribbean Band. Dance, dance, dance up a storm in front of Downtown Crossing’s Macys , to the reggae beats of the bands originally composed tunes, Bob Marley oldies and other well-seasoned crowd favorites, as well as special arrangements of top hits from other popular genres. You can even expect some soca, ska, and calypso style sounds thrown in for a little extra variety. Hot Like Fire always gets and keeps the crowd going while they demand encore after encore performance.
