Ramsey has been an involved member of the New Orleans community and culture for years. He has been a spy boy in the Black Feather Black Masking Indian tribe and a big chief in Young Black Feather. He was also key in founding the iconic Big 6 Brass Band.

Ramsey was detained in Bermuda on April 21, 2023 and has been held there ever since. While heading to his return flight to New Orleans, he was arrested under a suspicion of money laundering charge and his passport was confiscated. His court date has been continuously pushed leaving him stuck abroad in legal uncertainty. Bermuda's best criminal lawyer has been secured for his case and the money raised in the brass benefit will support his legal fund as well as his hopefully imminent flight home.

The night will include two stages with incredible performances by well-loved artists including Stooges, King of Brass, New Breed, Big 6, Da Truth, Sporty's, and TBC. Come enjoy this night of local talent in support of a good cause to bring a community member back home.
