There are a few truly distinct voices that come to mind when looking at the whole landscape of music, those voices that are recognizable even only after listening for a couple of seconds or a few notes. If you zoom in a little closer to home, you will be hard pressed to find a voice as recognizable as that of the incomparable Aaron Neville. He will be performing live at Sam’s Town Casino Shreveport on April 27 at 8pm.
Although he is well known for being a member of the famed Neville Band, Aaron is likely best known for his solo career. He is a Grammy Award winning artist with hits such as “Tell It Like It Is” and “Don’t Know Much” both of which reached the charts top spot.
Very few singers possess a soul stirring voice like Aaron Neville’s, In an interview with Tavis Smiley, Neville was asked if his unique voice has ever restricted him from recording anything. “If it don’t sound good to me I won’t do it, simple as that…anything I sing I have to feel it”, he replied, a comment both simple and profound.
Do not let the opportunity pass to be in the audience when the legendary crooner performs live, singing classics, as well as music from his latest album on Blue Note Records, My True Story. The show will be in the Grand Ballroom at Sam’s Town. Ticket prices are from $35-$40, but you may want to hurry because according to Ticketmaster there are only a few left.
