R&B great Aaron Neville will take the stage at The Venue Scottsdale on Sept. 29 with his energetic Creole and Cajun influenced soul. Neville has had four Platinum-certified albums and four Top 10 hits, including three Number Ones.
A New Orleans native, Neville has branded his career as an influential American R&B singer and musician, whose early days date back to a musical quad with his brothers Art, Charles and Cyril – The Neville Brothers.
With a career spanning 50-plus years, Neville's first major hit single was "Tell It Like It Is," released on a small New Orleans label that topped Billboard's R&B chart for five weeks in 1967 and also reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. Other hits include "Everybody Plays the Fool", "Don't Take Away My Heaven", "Hercules" and "Can't Stop My Heart From Loving You (The Rain Song)." Neville's biggest solo successes have been on the Adult Contemporary chart, where "Don't Know Much," "All My Life," and "Everybody Plays the Fool" – all reached Number One.
Neville will be joined by a talented, diverse R&B, funk, jazz and be-bop quintet also featuring his brother, Charles Neville, saxophone player extraordinaire.
