Naughty Professor is one of our favorites – a true, horn-driven funk band out of New Orleans.  This sextet features a three-piece horn section fronting the band and it serves as the “voice” of the group.  They are honest trendsetters when it comes to instrumental groups in today’s age.  We’ll be writing a full review of the show in the coming days but wanted to get this posted as they launch on their first ever European tour.  For our followers over there, and fans of bands like Snarky Puppy, Galactic and Lettuce, make sure you catch them while you can.  Here’s the tour schedule.
