Professor Cunningham & His Old School New York Jazz Band
@ Lucille’s Grill – Shows@ 7:30PM & 9:30PM (Doors @ 5:30PM & 9PM)
Take a growling horn section, a grooving and soulful rhythm section, a woodwind virtuoso/vocalist frontman, add the soul of a New Orleans party, and you’ve got Professor Cunningham and his Old School. This 8 piece piece band performs the most swinging and grooving repertoire deeply steeped in the New Orleans tradition; from early jazz to early R&B– the likes of Sidney Bechet, Fats Waller, even Fats Domino!
Professor Cunningham and His Old School, since it’s formation in NYC four years ago by bandleader Adrian Cunningham- has risen to become one of the most prominent swing groups in the Swing Dance scene worldwide, playing events and festivals in Spain, Poland, Sweden, and of course the New York City.« Back to Events
