Rufus Roundtree & Da B’more Brass Factory
Formally trained musicians, Rufus Roundtree and Da B’More Brass Factory infuse the essence of the New Orleans brass band sound that defines the Mardi- Gras experience with a hometown contemporary flare; recreating versions of R&B and hip-hop songs with funk, neo-soul and jazz elements… guaranteed to keep the crowd dancing. Rufus wears his signature Chapeau, which can be seen all over the party, as a result of an on-stage encounter while playing with George Clinton where Clinton ended up taking his stage hat, which originally was just a fedora, leaving him no other choice than to walk into his destiny and become the iconic entertainer he is today. Ask him to tell you about it, Great story. Rufus believes in an enhanced audience experience so expect to be a part of the show!
