john_vibe_bwHi, I’m John Culbreth.
I’m a New Orleans based trumpet player, composer, and educator. I spend my time touring with New Orleans’ brass-led Jazz/Funk Fusion band Naughty Professor. Separately as a member of The Naughty Horns (Naughty Professor’s horn section), I perform and record with other artists as well. I earned my Bachelor of Music at Loyola Univeristy New Orleans, during which I both qualified as a semifinalist in the 2014 National Trumpet Competition, and performed as a member of the Disney All-American College Band in Los Angeles, CA.

Some of the artists I have performed or recorded with include:

  • Naughty Professor
  • The Revivalists
  • Chali 2na
  • Galactic
  • Dumpstaphunk
  • Griz
  • George Porter Jr.
  • Eric Krasno

  • Delfeayo Marsalis’ Uptown Jazz Orchestra
  • John “Papa” Gros
  • Bobby Kimball
