Hampton House Blues feat. LeNard Rutledge and Friends



"Hampton House Blues" is a night of live music at the Historic Hampton House. Come out, live in the moment, and walk where legends once walked!


This month we are featuring Miami' own LeNard Rutledge whose classy elegance and raw passion often draw comparisons to the legendary Lou Rawls. But, surprisingly, Lenard’s musical career began not as a vocalist but as a percussionist, playing in the marching and concert band at Miami Central Senior High and later while attending Saint Augustine's University in Raleigh, North Carolina. Lenard’s vocal career started in 1997, when he was asked to join the famed Melton Mustafa Orchestra after returning to Miami. Mr. Rutledge was the featured vocalist for Melton Mustafa for seven years. In 2002, Rutledge was introduced to the music director of The Van Dyke Café's, Don Wilner, who immediately recognized Rutledge's talent and began giving him regular performance dates. Lenard has shared the stage with a number of highly respected jazz artist such as: Wycliffe Gordon, Kenny Drew Jr., Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kirk Whalum, Marion Meadows, and the late George Duke.
