Funk and Fireworks: July 4th with The Neville Brothers

   
 

July 4th, 2007 ~ Celebrate the onset of summer and the anniversary of American independence with the four faces of New Orleans' Mount Rushmore--Art, Aaron, Charles and Cyril--the Neville Brothers. Since 1954, when Brother Art hit with the ultimate carnival classic "Mardi Gras Mambo," the Nevilles have been on the scene, solo or as a group. We'll hear their legacy of soul, funk and R&B as the brothers tell us how it all came to pass, and how the legacy lives on in the next generation with Ivan and Ian Neville. Plus we're off on a summer road trip to sample Ted Drewes' Frozen Custard Stand on Route 66 in St. Louis and play Drown the Clown at a Massachusetts county fair. All that and a set of summer music from across the great American soundscape that'll make you stand and salute.
