Naughty Professor is an iconoclastic New Orleans-based jazz-funk sextet whose adventurous recordings and horn-charged, high-energy live performances have earned them an enthusiastic fan base, critical acclaim, and widespread attention from their musical peers. Weaving together complex, inventive compositions and loose, organic improvisation, the band honors their hometown's jazz, R&B and brass-band traditions while looking to the future. 

A wide range of musical impulses has driven Naughty Professor ever since the band members first convened in 2010, having met while students at Loyola University's jazz program. The musicians' potent collective chemistry quickly won attention on the New Orleans music scene. After graduating, they began touring, expanding their audience nationwide.  

Naughty Professor's first three albums—2013's Until the Next Time, 2015's Out On A Limb and 2016's live In the Flesh—further raised the band's national profile. Lauded by critics for having a musical “depth and vision far beyond their young years,” Naughty Professor’s name regularly appears alongside New Orleans’ veteran luminaries. In 2013, the band was nominated by Gambit' Weekly’s Big Easy Music Awards for "Best Emerging Artist," and for "Best Funk Band" every year since. Naughty Professor was also nominated in 2015 and 2016 by Offbeat Magazine’s Best of the Beat Awards for "Best R&B/Funk Artist." In the magazine’s most recent poll, bassist Noah Young and Drummer Sam Shahin were named finalists as the “Best at their Instruments,” furthering the band’s stellar musical reputation. LESS INFORMATION
