s the daughter of one of the highly acclaimed Neville Brothers, Charmaine Neville is heir to a rich New Orleans musical legacy but is busy putting her own stamp on this musical heritage. Neville and her band dish out a spicy mix of the best of New Orleans music. Add a funky rhythm and some jazzy ballads, and you’ve got yourself one helluva Crescent City gumbo! The band, certainly one of the best to come out of New Orleans, is co-led by Charmaine and natty piano wizard Amasa Miller.

Devoted fans worldwide acclaim the Charmaine Neville Band. They’ve played festivals and clubs in cities all over the world including Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Copenhagen, Aukland (NZ), San Paulo (Brazil), Sasebo (Japan), and Barbados. Along the way, Charmaine has appeared with such notables as the Rolling Stones, Dr. John, Bobby McFerrin, Steven Stills, Harry Connick, Jr., and Linda Ronstadt. She started out backing up The Neville Brothers and went on to perform with The Survivors, a band whose alumni list includes Harry Connick Jr. and Bobby McFerrin.

Today, Charmaine and keyboardist Amasa Miller co-lead the now five-piece band. Fans flock to catch them at their regular gig, Snug Harbor, as well as to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, where the band has become a well-known attraction. Charmaine Neville (vocals), Detroit Brooks (guitar), Donald Ramsey (bass), Raymond Weber (drums), and Amasa Miller (piano).
