John Mahoney is the retired Coordinator of Instrumental Music and Jazz Studies and Professor Emeritus in the College of Music and Media of Loyola University New Orleans. A native of northern New York, he received his BS in Music Education from the State University of New York at Potsdam. In 1978, after playing professionally for six years, he earned his MM degree in Jazz and Contemporary Media from the Eastman School of Music, and began teaching at Loyola University. 

In addition to teaching, he remains an active performer on both trombone and piano. He appears as pianist and contributed both a composition and an arrangement on the Louisiana Red Hot Records compilation entitled Jazznocracy with the Al Belletto Big Jazz Band, and is also the trombonist on Matt Lemmler’s Portrait of Wonder album. A record of 10 of Mahoney’s big band compositions entitled In From Somewhere was released in 2001, which features 18 outstanding musicians from the New Orleans area. A second album from 2009, Christmas Joy, showcases Mahoney’s arranging skills. The John Mahoney Big Band performs often at New Orleans jazz clubs and has appeared at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival several times, most recently in 2017.
