This Event Has Ended

For over 45 years Bob Andrews has played keyboards all over the world and has been a local treasure in New Orleans since 1992.  He has played on over 1,000 recordings and has engineered and produced recordings for over 50 artists.  Bob grew up in the thick of the 60's and 70’s British music scene and played keyboards for Nick Lowe, Graham Parker and the Rumour, Brinsley Schwarz and many other bands. Bob has played regularly at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival over the past 20 years as a sideman, for John Mooney, Alex McMurray, and Johnny Sansone.  His keyboard gymnastics and high energy performances electrify crowds making him a favorite on stage.  Bob played keyboards on all tracks of Marianne Faithfull’s 2011 CD “Horses and High Heels”.  in 2006 Bob released the first of two solo CDs, “In New Orleans”, a collection of New Orelans R&B and blues songs, and “Chills and Fever” in 2011, when he played all the instruments and which featured some of his own compositions. Bob has been a featured artist for WWOZ Piano Night and is a frequent guest on WWOZ radio.  He recently recorded a reunion CD, entitled “Three Chords Good” with Graham Parker and the Rumour, which was released in November 2012 to co-incide with the band's appearance in the new movie by Judd Apatow, “This is 40” starring Paul Rudd. Bob's CD "SHOTGUN", a collaboration with a book of the same name by RKR-CB, was independently released in April 2012. The second in the series with RKR, "INVISIBLE LOVE", was released on November 21st 2012. On it, each song highlights a different music venue or other cool place in New Orleans that is off the beaten track and so it can be used as a fun guide to the city. Bob has just put our a new Kickstarter campaign, BOB ANDREWS SETS THE HAMMOND ON FIRE!!! and is currently touring with Graham Parker and the Rumour on the East Coast.
