Naughty Professor Brings Frenchman Street Late-Night Vibe to Green Parrot
Naughty Professor, the up-and-coming Nola-based jazz/funk sextet, will appear at The Green Parrot on Thursday, Feb 25th with shows at 5:30 and 9 p.m.
This collective of Big Easy performers captures the swinging spirit of New Orleans’ distinct jazz/ funk sound and is quickly making their mark on the Nola music scene.
Anchored in New Orleans,and f ormed in 2011, the band’s mission is to embody the jazz-influenced party culture of the Big Easy in a constantly evolving, high energy funk/soul outfit.
Naughty Professor’s live performances, which weave together complex compositions and loose individual improvisation, quickly commanded the attention of many notable musicians in town, including George Porter Jr., Galactic, and The Revivalists. With fresh recorded material in the works and a rigorous tour schedule planned for 2016 and beyond, Naughty Professor is poised to soon become the next household name associated with the highest echelon of New Orleans music.
Boasting a brass-forward, high-energy groove with prominent trumpet and sax solos that dart back and forth over funky guitar riffs, Naughty Professor promises to transport listeners right to a Frenchman Street late night party.
