Andrew is an internationally known tap dance artist, performing in venues ranging from the Blue Note Jazz Club and the Aaron Davis Hall in New York City, to the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, and Queen in Hong Kong. Andrew is continually stretching the idea of tap dance as a virtuoso musician and master story teller.
Andrew takes his audience on a journey of love, loss, and friendship through masterful storytelling and simultaneous tap dancing. From his first tap dance class to being mentored by Gregory Hines, and even through the loss of his mentor, Andrew recounts his romance with tap dance. Later Andrew is joined by equally talented musicians with whom he crossed paths during his journey for a series of inspired duets. The friends vary from performance to performance, but their energy and chemistry is undeniable.
Andrew and Max have had a musical relationship such that when asked how they met, they both had to take a moment to remember. Both virtuosos in their own right, stretching the perceived limits of their respective crafts, Andrew and Max together is an exemplification of the duo format. Their mutual respect, sensitivity, and joy for shared moments shine through every note. Visit AndrewAndMax.wordpress.com
