Andy & Renee -The Duo

Their selection of material is impeccable and impressive, frequently departing from the obvious in order to include the excellent. Part fan family reunion, part rock & roll tent revival, their incomparable live shows attract a large, enthusiastic, and fiercely loyal group of fans.
