Glen David Andrews
In a city whose spirit world is as old as Mother Africa’s children, Glen David Andrews, a native son of New Orleans, has made a compelling case for his own deliverance. Andrews was born in the historic Tremé neighborhood, which many consider to be the oldest black community in the United States. Transfixed by the magic and mystery of the city's second-line parades, Andrews and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, soaked up life's musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. “Jesus was born in a manger,” Andrews says, “I was born in a second line.”
Andrew's showmanship has long endeared him to audiences on New Orleans' fabled Frenchman Street. He's also made a profound impression at the world's biggest block party – the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. “Glen is one of the giant talents of New Orleans music,” says fest producer Quint Davis.
