This videotape is not yet digitized. Please email us to let us know you're interested in watching it, and we'll see if we're able to make it available online sooner.

Raw tape. First few minutes consist of interview with two of the Neville Brothers, followed by b-roll at concert, then actual concert footage. The band is touring in support of their new album, "Fiyo on the Bayou."

0:00 Color bars with chatting.

0:13 Cameraman adjusts positioning.

0:30 Interview starts. Tom Weinberg interviews Neville Brothers (2 – I think one is Aaron). They talk about the resurgence of New Orleans style music after the disco craze ended.

1:40 The Neville Brothers talk about their new album, which is the second album they have recorded together.

3:25 Fireworks erupting outside in the dark. It sounds like we are at a large gathering.

4:12 People dressed as Native American chiefs dance. They appear to actually be African Americans. The costumes are full of jewels and pink and purple feathers – very tacky and 70s-Elvis style.

4:50 Backstage? The People in Indian costumes appear to be dancers for the band.

5:55 The costumed individuals go on stage and dance. We are shooting from backstage, so it is hard to tell what is going on.

10:55 We cut to a position facing the stage. The “Native Americans” keep on dancing and the music continues. They sing “Iko Iko.”

14:25 Tape ends abruptly.
