Kermit Ruffins & the Bbq Swingers
All Ages From playing himself in the HBO Series Treme, to barbecuing outside his bar, Kermit's Treme Mother-in-Law Lounge, to sitting in with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the trumpeter/vocalist keeps himself busy when he isn't on stage doing what he does best—entertaining and sharing his love of life with the world. Ruffins continues making his imprint on the world with wider exposure including appearances on Bravo's Top Chef and on the soundtrack to Disney's Jungle Book with Bill Murray and Christopher Walken. He personifies the laid-back vibe of New Orleans. But he did not come by his gifts easily. Ruffins did his homework and developed his stage persona and musical act by studying artists who came before him. He watched videos of Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway until the tape wore out, cut his teeth busking the streets of the French Quarter, and apprenticed on stages with local legends "Uncle" Lionel Batiste and Danny Barker.
