1. Kermit Ruffins was one of the founding members of the Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band and the current band leader of the BBQ Swingers. Kermit sat down with the Brass Roots film crew for half and hour and talked about forming Rebirth, touring the world and life in the old Treme neighborhood of New Orleans.

    This video is just a small sample of what will be included in "Brass Roots: The Untold History of New Orleans Brass Band Music", chronicling the music, culture and lives of the people that live and breathe the Big Easy's signature music genre.
