Don’t try an Internet search on
award-winning drummer Andy Hamburger unless you’ve got a lot of time.
Andy’s one of the busiest working drummers in the Mid-Atlantic region,
and with good reason: he does it all. From rock to funk, jazz to new
age, blues to latin, Andy has covered an amazingly wide range of
musical styles for more than 20 years, and does it so well that he’s in
high demand by band leaders and recording studios. He has credits on
several dozen albums, and well over a hundred local and national
commercials and movie
Andy’s performed or recorded with Side FX, the Junkyard Saints,
the Natty Beaux, Op-Critical, the Mary Ann Redmond Band, Al Williams
and Friends, Cruel Shoes,
Big Cam and the Lifters, and Field Day, as well as The Temptations,
Harold Melvin’s BlueNotes, The Drifters, The Ink Spots, Tim Eyerman,
Patty Reese, Matti and the Groove, The Coasters, The Platters, The
Marvelettes and too many other bands and headliners to list. If you
hang out in Washington, DC, you’ve probably seen him play – he’s
appeared at most music venues there from the Kennedy Center to Blues
Alley to Strathmore Hall. In addition, Andy’s taught younger drummers
at the Levine School’s Summer Rock Camp.
We think he’s the very definition of a musician’s musician, and Andy
maintains a constantly crowded schedule of recording sessions,
performances and rehearsals. We’re proud to have a small role in his
remarkable – and ever growing – body of professional work.
