John Eubanks has been part of the New Orleans performance, education and recording scene since 1988 and is one of the most in demand guitarists/teachers in the city today. Originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, John is a versatile instrumentalist whose schedule includes a mix of traditional & modern jazz, Brazilian mandolin and guitar, orchestral work, and musical theater. He worked at the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse with the Shreveport Symphony, having studied at NSU in Natchitoches and UTA on a scholarship. John made stops in Nashville, Scotland and Baton Rouge before settling in New Orleans. He began work on a MA in Music degree at Loyola University and was a faculty member there from 1992-2004.
John continues to teach while performing at jazz festivals, with symphonic and pit orchestras, and at jazz clubs throughout the New Orleans area (including a regular Sunday gig at Muriel’s on Jackson Square, in the heart of the French Quarter).
(and like Savannah, Muriel’s has a Ghost!)
John Eubanks performs on a La Venezia Model.
