Lori was a pleasure to work with from start to finish!! She and Bart were fantastic at the cocktail hour of the event!! They set the perfect tone for a sophisticated, relaxed, social hour. Several people at the party (including some musicians, themselves), commented how great the music was, and we loved it!!!
I had the pleasure of working with both Lori Andrews and Bart for our wedding this past August at Eden Gardens Moorpark. They were a hit. We hired them to play a combo on the harp and guitar. The music was beyond anything I could ask for. All our guest loved them. If I ever have another big event, I would definitely hire them within a heartbeat.
I am a harpist specializing in latin, swing and classical harp. I have 8 CDs, our latest was on the Grammy roster for best smooth jazz CD and we have distribution in Japan and six European countries. I play many weddings as a solo harpist but my favorite scenario is to play Classical for the ceremony with my husband, Bart, who plays Rock/Pop/Classical guitar (and flute) and then to play latin and swing, very upbeat, lively music for cocktails with Bart who is also a recording session upright bass player here in Los Angeles. There are plenty of song and instrument choices on the website. If you are interested, please feel free to email me for rates, just let me know when and where your event is so I can price accordingly. Also, I welcome any and all song requests. And last but not least, congratulations!
for your funny bone: here is the skit I did on TV recently:

Cool and hip pop wedding tunes playlist:
"If you think you've heard it all, check out Lori Andrews, who single-handedly, no . . . double-handedly, redefines the possibilities of the harp and turns it into a funky jazz instrument. Incredible! She's the rhythm, the bass, the melody, all intertwined in a way that you just have to see and hear to believe. Lori's music is creating a new future for an instrument rich in history and . . . she makes it swing!" -Bob James, jazz pianist
