Jason Neville FunkySoul Band was formed in 2016 and was the remnant of The very popular “Jason Neville Band”. The original band was established in 2015 and was a very popular cover band. The band added New Orleans Flavor and Funk to increase it’s visibility.
Once the FunkySoul Band was created, they added originals. The single “Be Myself” was considered a limited edition and sold out 2 months after it’s release date. The group is independently managed.
They do everything Independently and currently have current tunes available on iTunes, but they have created a new cd in 5/2021 that caters to the traditional funky sound of New Orleans tithed: “Funk with me” dedicated to the city that paved the way. “New Orleans”
Written and produced by the Band.
The Band Leader is from one of the most Famous Families in New Orleans. Jason Neville is the son of Mr. Aaron Neville.
His vocals are phenomenal!
Unlike the family traditions, Jason ventured off into a different yet similar Genre of music.
He wanted the Heart and Soul of his families music but he also wanted the R&B and Pop Culture to Spill over into his creations.
To give his band a new fun sound, he changed the dynamics of the normal Neville all male bands and hooked up with “Lirette Neville” also known as 1st Lady of Funk. She is the daughter of Legendary Jazz Drummer “Sullivan Dabney” and she added the hip hop rap flavor, sweet vocals and a fun percussion performance that made the group even more popular. She too was a funky performer.
Lirette was a local Star during an error where HipHop in New Orleans was starting to expand. She is on a long list of great female rappers from New Orleans.
Together they lead the only “LiveMix Band” in New Orleans. The term “LiveMix” means they mix the music genre in the show. It’s fabulous! Fans get it all!
You can find them performing with: Mike Zing a.k.a 3Zinge because he plays (Guitar, Bass and Keys) , Ben Parker (Benj) on Guitar, Phil Armand (Juice) on Drums and Lawrence Ussin a.k.a “The Funky One on Bass” & Alexander on sax/flute.
These guys can be seen at many clubs in Nola and on other States.
They play the Masion on Frenchmen & The Royal Frenchmen Hotel as semi residency spots.
They perform Tipitinas yearly for a major event and have previously had residency at LeBon Temps in Uptown New Orleans and Monkey Board Rooftop in Downtown Nola.
The Band was a Headliner for the 2018 Texas Jazz & Heritage Festival and other festivals around the world and were invited back on 2019, but a conflict on scheduling prevented that performance.
In 2020 they were scheduled perform “Congo Square” in New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Due to the pandemic, the Jazzfest performance was rescheduled until October 10, 2021.
During the Carnival season in Nola, you can catch them performing at every Tucks After Party during and in 2019 they performed & rode the “Popular “Funky Uncle Float with N.O own Leo Nocentelli of the “Meters” & “Soul Project”.
