Naughty Professor @ American Beauty
March 23 @ 8:30 pm$12.50
New Orleans-based future funk act Naughty Professor has just announced a run of dates, which includes a headlining show in New York City on Thursday, March 23rd at American Beauty. With the release of 2016’s In The Flesh, the group catapulted into the spotlight, garnering the respect from fellow Big Easy musicians and acts such as George Porter Jr., The Revivalists, Galactic, and Rebirth Brass Band.
The release of the single “Stray,” which features David Shaw, lead singer of The Revivalists, further cemented the respect of their NOLA brethren, as the 6-piece group combines complex compositions with the ability to improvise and take things to another level. Elements of the group’s jazz influence can easily be heard, but those futuristic funky stylings are what make any Naughty Professor show a good ol’ fashioned party!
