Andrews Family Brass Band

Between tradition and funk, Glen David and the next generation of the Andrews Family

Dates: 21-30.6, 2018

Glen David Andrews

He is a master of entertainment who holds the scene and inspires musicians and audience like few others. Trombonist and singer Glen David Andrews will be in Ascona together with a fantastic brass band, which includes a number of young musicians from his family, the Andrews, one of the New Orleans music dynasties that counts renowned members such as Glen David‘s cousins Troy (the great Trombone Shorty) and James Andrews, well-known faces at JazzAscona. The band members are aged between 18 and 23 and they are set to perform in Europe for the first time. Symbol of the lively Treme music culture, passed on from one generation to the next, the band proposes an explosive sound with a pronounced touch of  funk. One of the protagonists of the past two editions of JazzAscona, Glen David Andrews is the winner of the 2016 Sweat&Spicy Award.
