The Neville Brothers – Photo of the Week
The Neville Brothers. Performing live at the Blue Balls Festival in the Lucerne hall of the KKL Lucerne, Switzerland. The year is circa 2008. So, you know there is a whole lot of dancing and partying happening during this festival.
Besides their performance, others that made appearances were Erykah Badu, Shaggy, Macy Gray, Jethro Tull, George Benson, K.D. Lang. As well as Cassandra Wilson, The Neville Brothers, Söhne Mannheims, Peter Cincotti and Serpentine. This photo is a stock photo from the performance. Either way, this whole festival would have been a blast to check out and it’s on my list!
The Supergroup of New Orleans!
Furthermore, they are the supergroup of New Orleans. The formation of this supergroup, began in 1976, as a recording session for the “Wild Tchoupitoulas.” They were a Mardi Gras Indian group led by their uncle, George Landry (Big Chief Jolly).
