“It’s from the movie The Last Dragon from the ’80s,” says Ruckel, who “daylights” as the executive chef at Home Team in West Ashley. “It’s an all-black kung-fu comedy. The star’s name is Bruce Leroy. The bad guy is the shogun of Harlem, and his name is ‘Shonuff.’”
Ruckel has been playing clever medleys of funk, blues, soul, and classic rock songs with keyboardist Jon Hager and various other members for four years, but they’ve recently firmed up the band rotation. Their current set features a mix of rock and blues classics plus a few originals.
