Andys trio or quartet are energetic and spontaneous and have been wowing audiences across Australia for nearly a decade. At 27 years of age, Andy is what you’d call an “old soul”. His love for jazz and swing started at the tender age of 10, and since then Andy has developed into an accomplished and well respected performing artist. Combining the elegance of jazz classics with the fun and energy of party hits.
Can you imagine your guests enjoying the sultry sounds of a roving saxophonist as they mingle outside for pre-dinner drinks? Or how about the classical elegance and emotion of a flute or oboe solo as you walk down the aisle? Or what about having your own little "Michael Buble" entertaining your corporate guests and clients in style? And let's not forget about the all-time classic hits that you'll need when it's time to dance the night away!
Many people fall into the trap of hiring a string quartet for a wedding ceremony, a roving artist for pre-dinner drinks, and then a costly four or five piece band for the reception. Take a step back and consider how much time, effort and expense you would save by simply booking Andy to do the job of all three entertainment options.
Andy has performed around two hundred times a year for the past ten years: everything from weddings to corporate launches, nighclubs to bowls clubs, international resorts to private residences. Each performance is special, and each performance is tailored to meet your vision of the perfect event.
