Giant Talent of New Orleans, Glen David Andrews, Makes Green Parrot Debut

Glen David Andrews, described as  “One of the giant talents of New Orleans.” by Quint Davis, Producer, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will make his first appear at The Green Parrot

Andrews topped all artists in the recently announced New Orleans Best of the Beat Awards, with six nominations including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Male Vocalist, and Best Trombonist, and 2 songs from Redemption, “Surrender” and “NY to Nola”,  were nominated for song of the year. Andrews’ Green Parrot appearance  is part of a national tour in support of his new CD, “Redemption”.

Glen is a member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, and  is a multiple nominee for Best Performer, Best R & B Performer, Best Male Vocalist and Best Trombone Player at both the Big Easy and Best of the Beat Awards.

He has had numerous appearances in the HBO Series, Treme and was also featured in the Spike Lee’s films, When the Levees Broke and If God Is Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise.

“Aside from being a great musician, Glen David has absorbed a fading tradition. He’s a link for his generation to something important. But he also has a rare enthusiasm and energy that makes it all special and exciting for even casual listeners.” Ben Jaffe – Preservation Hall

“Approximating the power released by a six-pack of hydrogen bombs detonated at tent central, carrying his audience along on a wild ride from one detonation to the next, Andrews was searingly, exhaustingly astonishing” nola.com
