One of the tightest and most energetic musical units touring today, RUFUSIZED is a funk & soul supergroup of top-tier talent who tear up the stage, scorching through the beloved tunes of RUFUS & CHAKA KHAN like no one else can, or is qualified to.

The band is lead by Rufus’s original bassist, Bobby Watson (also Michael Jackson, Pointer Sisters, WAR, Max Weinberg, Chromeo, Ledisi), who joined Rufus in 1974 and helped create the “Rufus sound.” Nobody knows Rufus like Bobby, who was also a producer & songwriter on all of the Rufus Albums from 1974 to present.

Rufusized is also composed of the veteran ears of keyboardist Andy Weiner (American Idol keyboardist for 10 years, Chaka Kahn, Jason Ingram), the feel-good power of drummer Chris Bailey (Britney Spears, Nick Jonas, Chaka Kahn, Des’ree), the heart and prowess of vocalists Josie Aielo Stewart (Warner Chappel music, BGVs for Jessie J, Cher, J Lo, Enrique Iglesias, Kenny Loggins) and the dynamic EL having a vocal range of four octaves, along with the pedigree of guitarist Brian Price (The Jazz Crusaders, Peggy Lee, Patti Austin, James Ingram.)

The sheer magnitude of their professional experience shines through in their incendiary stage show that has made them a universal favorite for audiences for the past two years, playing the biggest hits of RUFUS & CHAKA KHAN including “Ain’t Nobody,” “Sweet Thing,” "You Got The Love" and "Smoking Room."
