KERMIT RUFFINS, trumpeter, combines

the spirit of classic New Orleans music with the energy of the Crescent City sound. Kermit co-founded the Rebirth Brass Band, a group who started playing in the streets of the French Quarter. They released critically acclaimed records and performed in concert halls around the world.

KXCI-LogoAfter seven albums with Rebirth, Kermit began a solo career to focus on classic New Orleans jazz. He established the Barbecue Swingers, a quintet whose name comes from Kermit’s habit of cooking up barbecue from the back of his pickup before gigs. Kermit has recorded seven solo albums. Audiences applaud his original compositions and revel in his innovative versions of classics. His virtuoso trumpet playing and expressive voice have earned him comparisons to Louis Armstrong. His laid-back demeanor, zest for life and appreciation of good food and music embody the character of the city where he was born and raised.

Opening:
KING SOLOMON HICKS, guitarist and singer, is known as “King Solomon,” “‘lil B.B.,” and “East Montgomery.” He excels at styles from jazz, blues, classical, gospel, R&B, funk and classic rock. He has studied jazz, classical and Afro-Cuban guitar at Harlem’s School of the Arts and the Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts and has attended Jazzmobile and Barry Harris’ workshops. Solomon started performing at Harlem’s historic New Amsterdam Musical Association and on Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater. His biggest gigs include performances at the United Nations, the 2009 U.S. Open, MetLife Stadium and Madison Square Garden. A year after joining the Cotton Club All Stars as lead guitarist at age 13, Solomon recorded his first album, Embryonic. J. Walter Thompson’s Differenter Committee chose Solomon as one of their “Innovators of Change” in 2012, filming him for a documentary on New York’s most accomplished and creative African-American citizens.
