A Slice Of The Heaven That Is New Orleans
Posted by suze72
I have known about Kermit Ruffins for many years but had not seen him perform live until last week at Brighton Music Hall. Sure, I saw him on the incredible HBO series ‘Tremé‘ and from his scenes, I knew I had to seize the first opportunity I had to see him.
Kermit is a (mostly) jazz trumpeter who got his start with the Rebirth Brass Band (hmmm, maybe I did see Kermit with them) in the 1980s. His band is the Barbecue Swingers and swing they did! There was no barbecue at this show unfortunately…
