One of the finest modern music singers to come out of New Orleans, Aaron Neville will appear at the House of Blues in the French Quarter June 28th. For the finest selection of luxury ground transportation to the show, Limo Livery offers the highest degree of excellence in limousine service.
The soul and R&B singer first signed a recording contract in 1960 and in 1967, released his most familiar song, “Tell it Like it Is”, which went #2 on the US Billboard charts and #1 on the US R&B Billboard charts. He has three other top-20 hits in the country, including his two Grammy Award winning singles with Linda Ronstadt: “Don’t Know Much” and “All My Life” and his 1991 version of “Everybody Plays a Fool”, which was a top five hit by The Main Ingredient in 1972.
In 1977, he joined brothers Art, who is a founding member of another popular New Orleans band – The Meters, Charles and Cyril to form The Neville Brothers. The brothers went on to release 13 studio albums and won a Grammy Award in 1988. More recently the Neville Brothers performed last month at the 2012 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Although Aaron Neville is now 71, he still retains his distinctive tenor that is instantly recognizable from his legions of fans. Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home in New Orleans in 2005 and his wife of nearly 50 years died from cancer two years later. He remarried in 2010 and after living in Tennessee briefly, is now living in New York City but also maintains a home in Covington, some 40 miles from New Orleans.
After more than 50 years in the music business, Aaron Neville still loves making music and is reportedly releasing his next full-length album this fall. British rock legend Keith Richards produced the album and also plays guitar. Neville is expected to perform some of his newest singles in addition to some of his timeless hits at the House of Blues on Decatur St. Fans attending the show should choose Limo Livery for the best limousine service in the city.
