Ruffins is a fixture on the New Orleans scene, playing weekly gigs with his band the Barbecue Swingers at various spots, most notably Vaughan's Lounge, where he recorded a live album in 2007. Ruffins also has been a recurring character playing himself in the HBO series Treme. His most recent album, We Partyin' Traditional Style, was released last month on the Basin Street label.

There's nothing yet on The Gramophone's site about the shows, but when ticket prices and an on-sale date are announced, we'll have the information for you right here.
