Professor Cunningham and His Old School

Professor Cunningham and His Old School

One of the hottest bands to take the NYC swing scene by storm in recent times, this 7 piece group drawing from the best of New Orleans and swing repertoire will be returning to the Cutting Room.

Having already performed at the top swing events in New York City (BABBLE, Gypsy Jam) as well as all along the east coast, they are a favorite amongst the dancers of the Lindy Hop revival. With a powehouse rhythm section and roaring horn section, It will be a guaranteed night of high energy, gritty swing and blues in the best New Orleans tradition. In September, they celebrated the release of their self-titled CD to an enthusiastic crowd here at the Cutting Room, and are pleased to be back doing it all again.

This music is made for dancing! There will be plenty of room for you to shake your booty, but of course you can also take a seat and watch some of new york's finest swing dancers do their thing.

Their leader, Adrian Cunningham (Vocals, Sax, Clarinet), has already established himself as one of this Australia's finest jazz musicians and multi-instrumentalists, with countless club and festival appearances plus a number of highly acclaimed albums. Having been been based in NYC since 2008, Adrian has been playing regularly in the Big Apple, throughout USA and Europe. In 3 short years he has appeared some of NYC's finest clubs- Smalls, Birdland, 55 Bar, Fat Cat, the Apollo Theater, Dizzy's (Lincoln Centre) and even a private event at the hallowed Village Vanguard; with such luminaries as Lew Soloff, Wycliffe Gordon, George Coleman Jr and Bucky Pizzarelli.
