We went on a Sunday, so it turned out we could find free street parking. They had a very small self-park lot one block from the theater, and they were charging fifteen dollars for that.

food purchase required to sit down for this performance (although I found out later you can sit in a balcony seat without having to buy anything. The food prices are very expensive.

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.”
