From a review of the August 8, 2015 performance at San Jose Jazz Festival...
"Andrews and his band are a force. Their music is an electrifying combination of Funk, R&B, Jazz, Gospel and Zydeco, a joyful, communal noise that prompts, even the most casual listeners to lose their inhibitions, whoop, holler and shake the booty."
From the Minneapolis City Pages
"...a fiery amalgam of brass band roots, gospel, funk, soul, and R&B, and it rocks with all the gritty, soulful, ass-shakin’ intensity Andrews can muster." Rick Mason
