Comes A Time: Ivan Neville

On this episode of Comes A Time, Oteil and Mike are joined by an all-time great New Orleans musician- Ivan Neville! You’ll hear the three discuss Dumstaphunk playing the Superdome and how Ivan is the only person to open for the Rolling Stones at the Superdome twice, Ivan’s first payed gig and what it was like to play with the Neville Brothers, and an interesting explanation on where the New Orleans Groove comes from. Ivan passionately tells the guys how Kofi’s playing used to blow his mind, and dives deep on the events that inspired him to get sober 23 years ago, working through nerves on stage, and many other facets of his incredible life of music.

Ivan Neville is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and New Orleans legend best known for his work with Dumpstaphunk, The Neville Brothers, and The Rolling Stones. He has performed with many other fabled artists including Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, and Paula Abdul, and has appeared on stages all over the world from that of the Late Show with David Letterman to the Superdome. Ivan has released four solo albums and had a Top 30 Billboard hit with the first single, “Not Just Another Girl,” from his debut solo album If My Ancestors Could See Me Now.
