Andrew Foertsch

Born in Chicago. Performed and recorded with Giant City/Aura 1970-1972 for Mercury Records. Played in various Big Bands in the Chicago area including the Chicago Grandstand Big Band, BJB, and the Bobby Christian Orchestra until 1980 when I moved to St. Petersburg Fl. I've been active in the Jazz and Blues scene in the area off and on since then performing with the Potpourri Big Band at the 1980 Clearwater Jazz Holiday and also with the Mark Hendricks Big Band and the Tomcats Big Band. Performed with the Al Downing All Stars and have led several groups incuding the George Allgaier-Andy Foertsch Jazz Project, Moment's Notice and Les Bon Temps Quartet. I have also performed with the Chiacgo Fire Blues Band, the Dukes of Juke and Rock Bottom and the Cutaways, with whom I toured Scandinavia and Poland.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
