Parking can be tricky, so arrive early. Valet is $30, but parking at Howard University's lot around the corner is only $2 an hour.

You need to arrive early!!!! We decided to go home after work - WRONG MOVE - go directly to the Howard to stake out a table. They have a menu that we couldn't try because we didn't have a table. I don't know if the food tastes great but it looked delicious! You can eat and drink while you wait for the show to begin.

Howard Theater is gorgeous, sound system wonderful, and, OMG, Aaron! Even tho @ 71 his voice is starting to go, he's still more talented than all the young-uns coming up put together! He did old-school do-wop and 60s-70s R&B plus some of his...continued

Description

New Orleans-born Aaron Neville started singing in a group called The Hawkettes, in which his brother Art Neville also sang. He had some minor hits over the years, mostly regional, but finally hit the big time in 1966 with the delicate “Tell It Like It Is”. For a variety of reasons—including the collapse of his record company—he wasn’t able to capitalize on that record’s success. In 1978 he, his brothers Art, Cyril Neville and Charles Neville formed what eventually became known as The Neville Brothers, although he also continued his career as a solo artist. In 1989 he hit the charts big-time again in a duet with Linda Ronstadt called “Don’t Know Much.”
