My prayers are with the family. I'm so blessed to have known Papa Funk. To us he was Artee (that's my spelling). I got to sit in a rehearsal with the Meters when I was 13 in the 70s. Then I came home to New Orleans one Mardi Gras, and I thought someone was trying to play music like the Neville Brothers. Well it was Art playing music in the neighbor's backyard party across the street. After finding out it was him, I ran over there and dance the evening away. Well I tried, it was a holiday and I had to run back and help with the dishes . That made my weekend. Will miss you Art❤❤

My deepest condolences to the Neville family. I became a fan after a trip to MardiGras back in the day! That was were I fell in love with real N.O. music. Not two days ago I was thinking of the brothers and realized I hadn't heard them in quite awhile....... only to find out today that Art had passed. I'm in the midst of putting my own obit together which will include a bucket list for the other side...... I'm just having trouble deciding what color my Boogie Shoes should be!
Until then, God speed!

For All the Neville Family -
BLESSINGS and PRAYERS are with you and your family! There are no words to describe how much the Beauty of the music, and, if you were lucky enough to get to see it - Art's very special smile...
Never one to be in the spotlight, stage left, his Rock-solid groove was what pulled the train! He was the Conductor!
My bass player gave me the first Funky Meters Album, and as a blues guitarist - my life was forever changed!
How can I possibly find the words to thank you for for that? Except for me to see his smiling face EVERYTIME I play " Sissy Strut!"
I was blessed to have seen him so many times over the years. And, it was ALWAYS best in NOLA! The last time I saw him was at Tippitinas - packed in shoulder to shoulder, with the groove PENATRATING Everyone's SOUL...
Hot & sweaty, cold beer flowing & the entire crowd rolling to that inimitable devastating Funk - George all smiles; because these kinds of gifts are FLOWING in - channeled down from the Universe! You had the "Connection!" - something ABSOLUTE and indefatigable - a harness to the untouchable! The indefinable Key to a door that only few are allowed to enter...
The "Magic and the "Voo-doo!" - that transient Sprit that flows above and beyond the music itself - the Groove and Funk became PRAYER! And you built that! An absolute "Once in a lifetime PERFECT pairing of souls" that will never be replicated. You - a soul brother to ALL real musicians, gave us something that reached down into the core; the ABSOLUTE Marrow of Bone! You Sir - were touched by the hands of the Gods!
A Spectacular Life & Vision that has touched us ALL...
We'll miss you my brother!
Your job was done - and you showed the whole world the Love! What else can a man possibly achieve in this lifetime? Your music will live forever and your dignity & beautiful smile will live on for Eternity...
May your whole family embrace that truth and find solace in the Grace and Spirit of the Extraordinary life and wonder that you were kind enough to share with us ALL!
May God Bless you and your family, and may you all embrace Art's LIFE and not be lost in a sea of sorrow...
I hope that you went out on the wing of a Dove!
Your Divinity has opened up the door - and the Lord is waiting with open arms to embrace the Beauty of your wonderous soul!
Rest in peace and may your family be able to celebrate a life well lived, and may the grieving be short. And once again; " Thank You my brother - Thank You!" Sleep well!
God Bless the Whole Neville Family...

Thank you for all the music that will touch our hearts and move our feet for eternity. The world is a less soulful and funky place without you and we must reckon with the fact that there will only ever be one Art Neville. Your life and music will forever be an inspiration and to have shared in that beauty for even a moment watching you play or listening to your albums is nothing less than a gift from God. May you rest in peace and know that your genius will never be forgotten.

My heart is heavy, and the only relief I know is know that I will see you again one day. I miss you and love you so much. You were a good man and raised good kids.

A cornerstone of funk music, Art Neville is irreplaceable and without peer. He was a prime mover behind the uniquely New Orleans sound. I had the pleasure of being a guest in his home and savoring his special gumbo recipe. I will always be grateful for the joy he brought to my ears and my soul and, as a musician myself, educating me on the real meaning of funk. Poppa Funk rests now but his legacy will carry on for as long as music flows out of the bayous.
