Professor Cunningham and His Old School

Special Event: Skye & Naomi Workshop Weekend

Special Extended Dance Time: 8:15pm-12:30am

Dance Exhibition by Skye Humphries & Naomi Uyama

Uptown Swing welcomes back the always fabulous Professor Cunningham and His Old School, performing the most swinging repertoire in the New Orleans tradition — from Sidney Bechet, to Fats Waller, to Professor Longhair and even Fats Domino! The band was formed in 2012 by our favorite Aussie bandleader and reedman, the charming and witty Adrian Cunningham, and consists of some of the most energetic and accomplished musicians on the New York scene. It's been a regular hit, performing at some of the city's finest speakeasy shows (Shanghai Mermaid, Gemini and Scorpio, NY Hot Jazz Festival) and regularly performing to packed houses at some of the city's best Swing venues (Cutting Room, Swing 46, The Back Room).

Our annual dance during the Skye & Naomi weekend has come to be a major highlight of the year.
