The Nevilles (Art, Charles, Aaron and Cyril) will join the LMHOF at their Allstate Fan Fest concert in New Orleans this Saturday, January the 7th. The Neville Brothers have a group history encompassing 35 years of performing, writing and recording together, although various individual brothers have musical histories dating back over 55 years from Art Neville's beginnings with the Hawkettes and "Mardi Gras Mambo" to individual solo careers, including Aaron's 1966 hit, "Tell it Like it Is". The Neville Brothers are a microcosm of New Orleans music history of the 50's through the 20 teens having worked with numerous Louisiana and Rock & Roll Hall of Famers writing, performing and recording ,and are an overdue addition to The Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame. The group will be presented with a unique artwork award and Official Statement of Welcome from Louisiana's Governor Bobby Jindal by Mike Shepherd, LMHOF Executive Director as he introduces them to the crowd to open the concert presentation this Saturday, January 7 prior to The Neville Brothers performance. The LMHOF would like to extend a special thanks to the Allstate Fan Fest and the Neville Brother's management offices for helping facilitate arrangements for this induction.
