Professor Cunningham and his Old School is one of the leading bands of the International Swing scene. Since forming 5 years ago, they are constantly in demand both in their hometown New York City, and worldwide, drawing from the most swinging and grooving repertoire deeply steeped in the New Orleans tradition; from early jazz to early R&B in the aesthetic of Sidney Bechet, Fats Waller, Professor Longhair and even Fats Domino!
“Professor” Adrian Cunningham, Australian born New York based musician and vocalist, is leader of the award-winning group. They are winners of the international swing band competition World Jam in Madrid, taking out three awards for: Best Band, Best Horn Section and Best Rhythm Section.
