The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA. – The Ruff Pack came through SF to play a few gigs and open up for the mighty Living Colour. “The Band blends and mixes the improvisational and compositional complexity of Jazz and the rustic groove and frenetic energy of HipHop”.

This jazz / groove fusion is really infectious. The band is real tight.
Daru is an immensely talented drummer. He has such a unique style to his play that beyond musically he’s mesmerizing to watch. He has this fluid and mechanical style that just helps to ease and coerce the groove along.

You can see the rest of The Ruff Pack photos here.

You can see a few more shots of Daru performing with Jack White and The Buzzards here.
