Support 88Nine And This Artist:
The Neville Brothers are a unique American group formed in the latter 1970's by four siblings who had grown up on Valence St in Uptown New Orleans. Each brother had faced some hard life choices and taken an individual musical path with mixed success before eventually bonding & joining forces together to create a very successful touring and family recording act of their own.
Led by keyboardist Art Neville
, and his younger brothers Charles
they first officially collaborated in 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana as The Wild Tchoupitoulas
to honor the Mardi Gras Indian legacy of their uncle George Landry.
Since then they have jointly released numerous albums on various label under the name The Neville Brothers, and have toured the world to wide acclaim spreading a spirited and soulfully blended sound that combines R&B, Reggae, Gospel and Funk influences in a spicy sonic gumbo that's deeply rooted in their creole New Orleans heritage.
