The Neville Brothers have embodied the spirit of New Orleans music for more than five decades; now, solo musician Aaron Neville, whose soul and R&B music earned him a place in the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, performs at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.
Neville has had four top-20 hits in the United States, including three that went to number one on Billboard's adult contemporary chart and one that went to number one on the R&B chart, along with four platinum-certified albums.
In January 2013, paying tribute to the songs of his youth, Blue Note Records released Neville's My True Story, a collection of 12 doo-wop tunes, produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, with backing by musicians such as Benmont Trench and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Tickets, $20 to $59, can be reserved at 360-734-6080 or mountbakertheatre.com.
