Traditional Jazz Trumpeter

Trumpeter Kermit Ruffins is one of New Orleans’ biggest personalities. For over three decades Ruffins has been a champion of the Crescent City’s traditional jazz roots, channeling Louis Armstrong as only someone who grew up in the Ninth Ward can. Co-founder of the legendary Rebirth Brass Band, Ruffins has been leading the Barbecue Swingers since 1992, doing his part to keep traditional jazz alive for future generations.
