Blues Bash LogoAfter being a part of the induction of his father, legendary bluesman Raful Neal, Kenny Neal was surprised with his own induction into The Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame.

In ceremonies at the “LMHOF Blues Bash 2011” held at RaXX Club in Erwinville, LA just miles from his family roots, Kenny joined the LMHOF on the evening of September 25, 2011 along with his dad Raful Neal and blues stars Henry Gray and the late, great Slim Harpo.

LMHOF Executive Director Mike Shepherd said that “while he had the whole Neal family on hand, Kenny needed to be honored as well as Raful.” He further explained that, in keeping with LMHOF procedures, “I made sure that the legend and patriarch, Raful, was inducted prior to Kenny, just to keep things in perspective.” He added that “It is a great pleasure for me to add my friend, and one of the best blues talents in the world, Kenny Neal to the LMHOF, especially with virtually the entire Neal family on hand.”
