New Orleans, LA (November 15, 2007) The Neville Brothers, the iconic band of New Orleans, a.k.a. The First Family of Funk, are coming home for their first post-Katrina performance in the city, appearing in their traditional spot as the Festival's closing act on Sunday, May 4. “The return of Aaron, Art, Charles and Cyril Neville to New Orleans and to Jazz Fest is as powerful a statement as possible about the return of our culture to the city. They are back, which means we are back!” said producer Quint Davis. The Neville Brothers, the four siblings whose recordings and live performances have for decades channeled the depths of New Orleans rhythm and blues with unparalleled authority, said, "We have been all over the world during the last two years, sharing the spirit of New Orleans through our music and raising funds for Katrina relief, so now it's time to bring the music home to our beloved New Orleans for the fans and the music community."
