Jul 24 12 - Hollywood Bowl Farewell Show
THE NEVILLE BROTHERS BRING THEIR FAREWELL LA SHOW TO THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
Special Guests Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1 AT 8 PM
The Neville Brothers, who embedded New Orleans blues and funk into our music culture, will perform together at the Hollywood Bowl as their last LA performance on Wednesday, August 1 at 8PM.
This concert highlights their extraordinary global career that has spanned
the last 35 years. The evening opens with Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews & his “Supafunkrock” and Louisiana roots-rockers Roddie Romero.
Holding a reputation as first-rank showmen and shamans, The Neville Brothers– Art, Charles, Aaron and Cyril- have a trademark of blues-soaked deep funk grooves. Initially, each of the brothers had his own individual music career until the death of their beloved mother Amelia brought them together, forming The Neville Brothers in 1977. Within the next two years they landed their debut album on Capitol. From then until now, the group has stayed together recording, touring and entertaining audiences everywhere. Alongside the group, each of the four brothers have been pursuing projects of their own; Art continues to tour with an offshoot group he calls the funky METERS, Charles has recorded a series of critically acclaimed jazz records, Aaron has forged a highly successful solo career and Cyril has a new project he recently launched called The Royal Southern Brotherhood.
In celebration of this final Los Angeles show selective and exclusive merchandise has been put on sale, including "The Best of the Neville Brothers: Uptown Ruling." Items can be purchased HERE
