I have seen Aaron Neville previously in other venues and have always enjoyed his performances. This show, at the Howard Theater, was absolutely the greatest. His musical talent was brought to the forefront on this evening. When he sang, "When the Saints Go Marching On", it was as if we were in a New Orleans attending a "celebration of life". Great performance from Charles Neville and the band.
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.”
