Adrian 'Professor' Cunningham

New York based and Australian born Adrian Cunningham is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer, vocalist, and world traveler. With fluent command of the saxophones, clarinet, and flute, he is one of the finest multi-instrumentalists in jazz today.

In a career spanning two decades and counting, the "down under sax star" (Wall St Journal) has performed alongside luminaries such as Jon Batiste, Chris Potter and Wynton Marsalis, and has appeared as soloist in some of the world's great stages including New York's Carnegie Hall, Blue Note (New York and Tokyo), Stravinsky Auditorium (Montreux Jazz Festival) and the Sydney Opera House.


Adrian is the recipient of the Hot House Saxophone Award (NYC), and his band Professor Cunningham and His Old School, is the winner of international band competition World Jam, (Madrid) and Best Band award at Harlem Festival (Vilnius, Lithuania).


The Professor keeps a busy international schedule, having performed at the top Jazz Festivals and Swing Events - Blue Note Jazz Festival (NYC), Barswingona (Barcelona), Melbourne International Jazz Festival (Australia), Sopot Molo Jazz Festival (Poland) Snowball (Sweden), Smokey Feet (Netherlands), Copenhagen Lindy Exchange (Denmark), Smokey Feet (Amsterdam), Swing Crash (Italy), Albany Jazz Festival and NY Hot Jazz Festival (US).


If you haven’t seen Adrian Cunningham before, this is a show not to be missed, and if you have seen him before, you won’t want to miss seeing him again!
