Art Neville dies at 81
By REBECCA SANTANA
AND KEVIN MCGILL
NEW ORLEANS — Art
Neville, a member of a storied
New Orleans musical family
who performed with his sib-
lings in The Neville Broth-
ers band and founded the
groundbreaking funk group
The Meters, died Monday.
The artist nicknamed “Poppa
Funk” was 81.
Neville’s manager, Kent
Sorrell, said Neville died at
“Art ‘Poppa Funk’ Nev-
ille passed away peacefully
this morning at home with his
adoring wife, Lorraine, by his
side,” Sorrell said in an email.
The cause of death was
not immediately available but
Neville had battled a num-
ber of health issues includ-
ing complications from back
“Louisiana lost an icon
today,” Gov. John Bel Edwards
said in a news release.
The Neville Brothers spent
some of their childhood in
the now demolished Calliope
housing project in New Orle-
ans and some at a family home
in uptown New Orleans.
In a 2003 interview with
Offbeat magazine, Art Nev-
ille described going to a Meth-
odist church as a child where
he had his first encounter with
“My grandmother used to
clean the pulpit. She was in
there cleaning it one day and I
guess she was babysitting me
’cause I was in there with her.
She went to one side and all
of a sudden I was on the side
where the organ was,” he said.
“Something told me to turn it
on. I reached up and pressed
a bass note and it scared the
daylights out of me!”
That experience helped
kick off a lifelong career as a
keyboardist and vocalist.
The Neville Brothers —
Art, Charles, Cyril and Aaron
— started singing as kids
but then went their separate
ways in the 1950s and ‘60s.
In 1954 Art Neville was in
high school when he sang the
lead on the Hawketts’ remake
of a country song called
“Mardi Gras Mambo.”
