Kermit Ruffins at Bullets

Kermit Ruffins is a New Orleans staple and so are his weekly gigs at Bullets Sports Bar on Tuesday nights.

New Orleans is the only place on the planet that could have produced native son Kermit Ruffins. Whether he’s blowing trumpet on a Louis Armstrong classic or one of his own hot numbers, Ruffins embraces the tune with the true spirit of the city. Ruffins’ music, like New Orleans itself, swings hard with a big heart as it remembers tradition and the importance of good-timin’ fun. Born on Dec. 19, 1964 (sharing the birthdate with New Orleans’ legend Professor Longhair!), Ruffins is a modern hipster in possession of an old soul.

As Ruffins invitingly announces at the start of a tune, “All aboard!”
