Dandrew

In the summer of 2009, Danny Tucker and Andrew Buonfiglio decided they should stop ignoring each other, and start playing other peoples hit songs for a mostly intoxicated audience. The people slurred, yelled, and drank more than ever before. Needless to say, the people liked what they saw. Since they couldn't come up with a simple name by themselves, DANDREW was suggested forcefully from a rowdy Dodge Street patron, and DANDREW was born. They eventually decided to recruit former classmates and longtime friends, John LeClerc and Mike Ryan, to play bass and drums, respectively. With a catalog of songs ranging from 50's Motown, to 90's Hip Hop, to today’s hits, there's something in there for almost everyone.
