Andy was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2014 for Producer of the Year, Classical.


Dueling Pianos

Dueling Pianos is a massive "top of your lungs" sing along with all your friends. Two grand pianos are center-stage with a team of outrageously talented pianists that seem to know every song ever written. During the high-energy show, two piano players sit across from each other and trade songs as various sections of the audience are pitted against each other (men vs. women, country vs. rock etc.) Each show is different because it is all request. Audience members are regularly called up on stage for a bit of good humored fun. We dare you to not sing along!


Acoustic Radio

With over a century of live performance experience with musical influences ranging from Alternative to Classic Rock and Country, this group of seasoned musicians can entertain any crowd or venue.  Strong vocals and harmonies and a diverse set list provide a party like atmosphere wherever this band performs.  Although the name is new the players are well known and carry a large following to fill any bar or nightclub from Portland to Boston. 


AJ Edwards

Known for poignant love songs that combine a reverence for classic folk storytelling with massive hooks, AJ Edwards has continued to see success as a Boston-born singer-songwriter. AJ Edwards toured in support of the release through much of 2014 and 2015, which included a run of dates supporting the likes of Vance Joy, Matt Nathanson, and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. In 2016, AJ's music was exposed to a much larger audience when his song, "Bad News" became featured in the hit summer comedy, "Bad Moms," starring Mila Kunis.
