Flatted Fifth welcomes The Andy T Band on Saturday August 20. Blues veteran guitarist and singer, Andy T is part of the duo, The Andy T and Nick Nixon band, who have been nominated in 2 categories for the 2016 Blues Blast Music Awards! Due to unforeseen circumstances, Nick Nixon is unable to make the show here this time. However, we're looking forward to Andy T's performance.
Here's an excerpt from his biography:
"Andy T’s jazz-tinged guitar style is influenced by T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Magic Sam, and Albert Collins among others, yet it remains his own. He was born and raised in Southern California and was always interested in guitar. He worked for twenty-three years as a manufacturing engineer in the aerospace industry but during that entire time he never stopped performing in local bands. In 1997 he quit his day job to join and tour with Smokey Wilson’s band. That lasted for two years, after which he played in Guitar Shorty’s band for a period of five years. During that time he toured internationally and performed with a long list of major blues artists around the country, learning how to back up a vocalist with economy and perfection as he honed his own playing style."
