25 minutes south of the Las Vegas Strip, amongst the barren desert, stands yet another casino! No surprise there! The surprise is the Star of the Desert Arena! It is a 6000 seat concert hall! This is where, Aaron Neville (lead singer of the Neville Brothers Band) performed with his 5 piece band which included his older brother, jazz man Charles Neville on the saxaphone!
The Neville family has held a place within the music industry for the last 50 years! Originally from New Orleans, the group had a jazzy rhythm and blues style! Over the years, Aaron continues to grow as an artist venturing into many different genres of music including pop and even country! Aarons" smooth individual voice has been nominated for 16 grammy's! After New Orleans was devastated by Katrina, Aaron got together with some of his old musician friends to form a new band. He did this specifically to go back on the road to spread the love and faith for his hometown.
Singing old classics like, "Everybody Plays the Fool, Ain't No Sunshine, Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay, Heard it through the Grapevine, Fever, Crazy Love, Don't Know Much, Tell it like it is, Betchya by Golly Wow, Don't Take Away my Heaven", Aaron Neville swooned the audience back to their past and reminded us all of the wonderful sounds that were inspired by New Orleans!
