A second line memorial for Art "Poppa Funk" Neville is set for this afternoon in Treme at 5 p.m., according to WWOZ-FM, which tweeted the information today. The procession will step off from Tuba Fats Square at St. Philip and N. Robertson streets.

Neville, who died last week at 81, co-founded the Meters and the Neville Brothers, two of New Orleans' most significant 20th-century bands.

A visitation service for Neville is scheduled for July 30 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Rhodes Funeral Home in Uptown, which also will be followed by a second line.
