Naughty Professor’s a young band from NOLA you’ll want to be on the lookout for in the near future as they’re bound to blow-up big time. The band’s mission statement reads as follows: “to embody the jazz-influenced party culture of the Big Easy in a constantly evolving, high energy funk/soul outfit”. Their particular brand of jazz features notable tinges of funk and brass band music but somehow the overall highly addictive, headbanging and foot stomping sound manages to achieve greater complexity and more intricacies than most. Case in point, their live version of “In the Tribe” we are honored to premiere today filmed at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Sébastien Hélary co-founded Nextbop in 2009 with the objective of introducing modern jazz music to a younger generation of fans. Aside from music, his other main obsession is food and he is the proud chef and co-owner of a little restaurant in Brittany, France.
