Royal Southern Brotherhood – Bayfront Blues Festival Artist Spotlight [VIDEO + AUDIO]


Royal Southern Brotherhood came together in New Orleans during the summer of 2011. Reuben Williams, manager to both Cyril Neville and Mike Zito, had the idea for the band. Zito mentioned Devon Allman, and then, as described by Allman, “we went from talking about the idea, to me and Cyril writing a tune over email, to being in rehearsals, all in two months.”

With the union of the three noted front men, the group next added a bass player and drummer and group made its stage debut in September 2011 at the Rock ’n’ Bowl in New Orleans.

In December 2011, the band recorded songs for their debut album over five days Louisiana. Their self-titled, debut album was released May 8, 2012, and the band began an international tour on May 11, 2012.

Royal Southern Brotherhood takes the Bayfront Blues Festival stage, this Saturday,at 7 p.m. You’ll love this group. Enjoy my unedited interview with the legendary Mike Zito, now a member of Royal Southern Brotherhood.
