Aaron Neville

Holiday performances with Aaron Neville are an SFJAZZ tradition. With one of the most evocative and recognizable voices in American music, the four-time GRAMMY winner is an international ambassador of New Orleans music and founding member of the legendary Neville Brothers band. His renditions of classics like “Silent Night” and “The Christmas Song” turned his 1993 album Soulful Christmas into a million-seller. Coming of age on the incredibly creative 1950s Crescent City R&B scene, Neville gained national attention with the Wild Tchoupitoulas, a touring Mardi Gras celebration that led to the creation of the Neville Brothers band — an institution that would confirm Neville’s iconic status. Over his Grammy-winning solo career, Neville has scored a string of hits including 1967’s “Tell It Like It Is,” memorable duets with Linda Ronstadt and a hugely popular cover of Main Ingredient’s “Everybody Plays the Fool.” A deeply spiritual man, his mesmerizing renditions of classics like “Silent Night” and “The Christmas Song” turned his 1993 album Soulful Christmas into a million-seller, and he delved deeper into the seasonal canon with 2005’s Christmas Prayer. Join us for an unforgettable evening of holiday classics with a true American original.
