“A true master of the jazz art form.”  – Mpls.St.Paul Magazine


Rejoicing in this very special performance, Bruce will perform original music, covers, poetry and share stories from his award-winning career. Joining in this special celebratory performance is Bruce’s band of Minnesota legends, Wild Horses Run Free, including:

Jay Young, bass
Daryl Boudreaux, percussion

Bruce’s concerts are more than just entertainment—they are an opportunity for community members to come together and celebrate the power of music. His performances evoke a sense of unity and shared appreciation for the artistic expression of various cultures and traditions. A man of great improvisation and knowledge, his national and international recognition have allowed Bruce to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of musical styles and genres.

For many years Bruce was “the most recognizable male voice in Twin Cities” (Jazz Police). Some know him as a versatile jazz vocalist, others a gospel singer, and still others know him as a composer, a poet, an activist and a historian. Many will remember him as a headliner with The Rupert’s Orchestra performing Motown Soul and Rock dance music. Even many of his closest fans don’t know that Bruce recorded funk and R&B as part of the Minneapolis Sound in the 1980s.

Today, Bruce continues to be a fixture on the Minnesota Music scene. He is one of Chicago’s premier vocalists and his performances celebrating The Evolution of African American music concerts and lectures are sought after around the country.

Bruce is a singer and band leader with a long history of stellar jazz concerts, moving R&B shows and revered tribute performances. As a vocalist extraordinaire, he handles an eclectic mix of styles with ease. Both his voice and mind are treasures and a concert, residency, or workshop with Bruce is not to be missed.
