Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers are a beloved institution – a must-see for every New Orleans visitor and a favorite of local critics and music lovers. As he helped spur the formation of new brass bands in his 20s, he has also influenced the city’s musical direction in the 21st century. Dozens of young musicians and bands are essentially playing the same music Ruffins pioneered with his solo act. They sing into retro microphones, dress in dandy suits and perform the timeless tunes that defined a decades-past era. Ruffins has over 15 albums under his belt and dozens of TV appearances including playing himself in the HBO Series Treme, and an appearance on Bravo’s Top Chef. He has performed with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on The Late Showwith Stephen Colbert, and Ruffins can even be heard on the soundtrack to Disney’s Jungle Book with Bill Murray and Christopher Walken. Kermit Ruffins personifies the laid-back vibe of New Orleans and gives a performance you CANNOT MISS!
