Jason doing his fathers hit ”yellow moon”
Jason Neville is the son of Grammy Winner Aaron Neville. He has performed many years with his family. Many people applauded Jason for having great vocals and talent. In a family full of talent, the pressure can be overwhelming. The unique styles Jason had were considered a combination of all the Neville Brothers. How do you combine all of that in one person? You don’t! You wait until they display it and you encourage the journey to success. Jason‘s family knew he’d be the combined talent of every brother. The pressure of comparisons would follow him but he wanted to do it all! He didn’t want to be labeled as just a Funk Artist.
Many people do not know this, but the very popular group known as “The Soul Rebels” were once the horn section for a very popular group known as “Def Generation”, Jason was the lead vocalist for that group.
In 2015 he started his own band known as:
The Jason Neville Band.
Some of the original members includes his other lead vocalist “The First Lady of Funk” and together they added (2) new members and formed the JasonNeville FunkySoul Band.
Although the band performed covers when necessary, they needed listeners to understand how creative they were. They decided to do something that would increase visibility.
Each Band member is gifted in multiple areas. They all have more than the (1) musical gift.
This band is the only band that makes up songs at every show. When they are stage, they never disappoint!
The band gained National attention back in 2018 and were the Headliners for the “Texas Jazz Festival”.
The best part of this exceptionally great band is that the leads are husband and wife!
Lirette Dabney Neville is the daughter of New Orleans Jazz Legend “Sullivan Dabney”. She is also a percussionist
The groups development was easy because they both come from musical backgrounds and they have been known to do it all on stage! After the festival, the Texas News called them Energetic & Brilliant The Band received numerous opportunities that they’ve been able to take advantage of.
The “JasonnevilleFunkysoulband“ has been on billboards and have played with some of the best such as;
Rockin Dopsie Jr., Original Wild Tchoupitoulas Indians, Soul Rebels & more.
The band is best known for Funk & Soul but they can do: Funk, Soul, POP, Hip Hop, Reggae & more
This Is the band that dared to go where no other band would go. They have created their own genre of music called: FunkySoul. Keep up with dates and shows.
