Join Khris Royal and Dark Matter for a special tribute to the late great Art “Poppa Funk” Neville at Maple Leaf with special guests Leon “Kid Chocolate” Brown and Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph.
The night will consist of three sets. The first set will be a set in tribute to Art Neville. The second set will be a regular Dark Matter set. The third set is a surprise that we can’t talk about yet but trust us, you don’t want to miss it.
Khris Royal was born to be a musician. This young and exceptional New Orleans native began playing the saxophone at seven years old, and producing and writing music at fourteen. Royal’s musical talents were nurtured at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) High School, in classrooms once shared by jazz greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Terrence Blanchard, and Donald Harrison. When Royal was only 16, he was granted a full scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and his career has taken off since then.
