      He sang "America the Beautiful" during the 7th inning stretch.

      If you want to hear the Neville brothers at their best get an old "Meters" or "Funky Meters" album.

        BTW, the live version of Cissy Strut, Mardi Gras Mambo & Rockin' Pneumonia need to be heard to truly appreciate the talent.

          Or be more topical and listen to "Sister Rosa" (Parks) by him and his brothers.

          Or singing "With God On Our Side".

          I saw this earlier but thought you had forgotten to leave a link or sumpthin'.

            Truthie, I just got the compilation CD from Jazz Fest this year. They expanded the original 2 disc set to three and donated proceeds to Hurricane Relief. Plenty of Nevilles to go around from the Brothers doing Pokey Way to the Meters - "We're a little older and a little fatter. But still black and still funky!" They kicked butt as always.

            My first trip to New Orleans, we hooked up with this crazy band of locals/professional drinkers. They talked us in to a trip to see this band at their home town stomping grounds and that it would be the best show we ever saw. It turned out to be The Neville Brothers at Tipitina's and we were front row on the stage.

            I've been hooked ever since!

                  There's no easy way to put this.....but listening to Aaron Neville is like a root-canal without the benefit of novacaine. But, if you like him, that's great.

                    And I feel the same way about you liking New Kids on the Block.

                            All good stuff.

                            Not to split hairs, but The Meters and The Neville Brothers are a little different. Both great, but slightly different. Art was the only Neville originally in The Meters, and Cyril was there only shortly before their break with Toussaint. No other Neville was in The Meters, or The Funky Meters.

                            Now, given the family nature of the New Orleans music scene, it wouldn't be odd to see any Neville playing with Zig, George or Leo (Leo even did a couple Brothers recordings). But I point this out because nobody creates that funky pocket the way that George Porter Jr and Ziggy do it. It's magical.

                            Catch The Meters while you can, because Art's ability to go on the road has reduced.
