Naughty Professor

Among the finest jazz-funk bands in New Orleans.” – Offbeat Magazine

No city can throw a party quite like New Orleans, so when one of their premier jazz-funk bands comes rolling into town … get on those dancing shoes! Despite having four well-reviewed CDs to their credit, including their latest Identity in 2017, Naughty Professor is at their best on stage, where their sizzling energy, horn-driven funk grooves, and stellar musicianship coalesce into a joyful musical gumbo. This future-funk collective of remarkable performers met in 2010 at the Loyola University jazz program and quickly bonded around a mutual love for the diverse jazz, R&B, and brass-band traditions that make New Orleans unique. They have recently collaborated with Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na and David Shaw of The Revivalists. After years of touring, these road warriors deliver an amazing mix of old and new! Ian Bowman saxophone, John Culbreth trumpet, Bill Daniel guitar, Nick Ellman saxophones, Sam Shahin drums, and Noah Young bass
