Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers
A New Orleans native and jazz legened, DeLuna Fest is thrilled to have Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers return to the Gulf Coast for a second time for DeLuna Fest 2012. Kermit’s trumpet reaches beyond jazz to touch on R&B and Dixieland genres, while playing New Orleans jazz standards and his own compositions. Mr. Ruffin’s smooth sound can also be heard on HBO’s hit show Treme, where he plays himself as a recurring character. Check out his performance on Treme’s pilot episode, below!
