BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet deepens its wide musical palate in welcoming saxophonist Charles Neville, a charter member of New Orleans musical royalty, The Neville Brothers, for a groundbreaking new collaboration. Dubbed "America's favorite Cajun band" by Garrison Keeler, the multi-Grammy Award-winning group has always pushed to expand their sound, creating music that moves easily from trans-Atlantic French & Canadian to their home-grown Louisiana Blues roots, all while incorporating the infectious rhythms of the world into their ever-expanding repertoire. Grateful Dead fans will recognize the mention of this music in the iconic "Sugar Magnolia" with the line "Well, she can dance a Cajun rhythm, jump like a Willys in four wheel drive." Their forthcoming union with Charles Neville promises to be yet another case where their diverse musical interests, tossed with the essence of the classic New Orleans sound, will percolate into BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet's strongest musical brew to date! BOSO meets NOLA!!!
