Charles Neville - beloved saxophonist, national treasure, and standard-bearer for New Orleans culture - is presently battling pancreatic cancer.

This unprecedented event is both a musical tribute and a fundraiser to support Charles Neville and his family as they face a year of uncertainty, upheaval, and tremendous difficulty. Every dollar raised goes directly to a fund that will help offset medical costs and enable Charles to receive the best possible care.

The evening includes special guest performances by Aaron Neville, Charmaine Neville, Khalif Neville, Mitch Chakour and others; a lineup that reflects the long list of musicians whose lives and careers have been shaped by their collaboration with “The Horn Man”.

Charles Neville believes deeply in the power of music to bring people together and catalyze social change. His work as a performer and educator is firmly rooted in a desire to uplift and inspire others. In this spirit, our musical guests have graciously donated their time to pay tribute to Charles and support his family during this challenging time.
