Hootie and the Blowfish were easily one of the biggest bands of the 90’s. When bandmates decided they were done with music, lead singer Daris Rucker could choose to hang up the guitar or start his own thing. He chose the later and has since topped the Billboard Country Albums, won his 3rd grammy for best country performance, and countless country singles.
Now Darius wants to give back. He wants to discover talent musicians who just haven’t hit their big break yet. The only problem is he’s very recognizable, which makes it hard to find real musicians. the team at Undercover Boss wants to help him out with this. In the above clip, Darius gets his makeup and prosthetics done.
Now with makeup on, he walks along 6th street in Austin Texas. One of the greatest things about Austin is the street performers, some of them are amazing if you stop and listen. Most just work for tips, and could never imagine being discovered this way. Darius walks into someone with a crowd of people doing a covHallelujahluijah and an original song.
Rucker also works as a roadie for a band. With the cover that he’s working on a game show, He heads to the world famous Stubb’s BBQ to help out 2 musicians prepping for their set. Luckily they are nice because you never really know whose going to be there listening, or helping you set up.
