The Professors are a group of composing musicians performing and recording in the New York and New Jersey area. Based in central New Jersey, The Professors bring together rhythms and sounds from a variety of styles to create provocative original and interpretive music. The Professors are available to play a wide range of festive events, including weddings, birthday parties, receptions, or any occasion where live music can make a significant contribution to its success. The Professors also have an extensive catalog of original music, which is captured on five studio recorded CDs.
