The Neville Brothers Booking Agency Profile

Book The Neville Brothers for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The differences between the four Neville Brothers are as dramatic as the similarities that unite them. The source of the similarities is passionate funk, a feeling for blues-soaked deep pocket grooves that is the basis of their greatness and exalted place in our cultural history. Singer and keyboardist Art is the oldest, the Founding Father. They call him Poppa Funk for a reason. Charles, the saxophonist, is a year younger than Art. At fifteen, he was the first brother to leave home and hit the road, playing with everyone from the Rabbit Foot Minstrels to B.B.King. They called him The Boy Wonder of Sax." He went to Memphis and returned home with a new stew of blues. Aaron's vocal aesthetic is downright angelic, an extraordinarily sweet mixture of Gene Autry yodeling and Golden Age gospel crooning. Along with Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, he is classified as one of the seminal soul singers. Cyril is the baby, a generation younger than his big brothers. His attitude is radical - a rougher, tougher blend of balls-out R&B, uncut bayou funk and militant social consciousness. As a writer, percussionist and powerhouse singer, he has made his mark as the most fiery brother and impassioned keeper of the Neville flame. All brothers except Charles who lived in Massachusetts, had been living in New Orleans, but after Hurricane Katrina, Cyril and Aaron moved out of the city. The Neville Brothers returned to New Orleans to perform there at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, at the closing spot which had been reserved for them for years..
