Red Beans and Jam 

The Neville Brothers and Blues Traveler play the Mountain Winery.

New Orleans may still be recovering from the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina, but the Neville Brothers continue to bring the party-soaked spirit of the Big East with them on the road. A continual music presence since eldest brother Art cut the perennial Crescent City anthem "Mardi Gras Mambo" with the Hawkettes back in 1954, various Nevilles have made music in different permutations including as members of the Meters and the Wild Tchoupitoulas. Expect to hear staples like "Iko Iko," Hey Pocky Way," and "Tell It Like It Is" pop up throughout the Nevilles' set. No slouch in the instrumental department, Blues Traveler has gone from reigning over the '90s thriving jam-band scene and overseeing its annual H.O.R.D.E. tours to becoming elder statesmen of a scene supplanted by emo. And while the band's record sales have gone considerably south, John Popper and company have settled into their trademark style of incessant touring while keeping their heads down in the commercial pop world. Tuesday, July 10, at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga. 7 p.m., $50-$59.50.
