The Jazz Guitar of
Andy Brown


Updated September 2022

I feel extremely fortunate to have several steady gigs at the moment:

Thursdays - Solo Jazz Guitar at Chicago's famed Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. I play behind the bar for the cocktail hour show from 5PM - 7:15PM. No cover, tasty drinks, and I take requests!

Sundays - Andy Brown Quartet at Andy's Jazz Club. Sets at 6PM and 8:15PM. With drummer Phill Gratteau, bassist Joe Policastro and pianist Jeremy Kahn.

Mondays - Joel Paterson and Friends at the Green Mill from 8PM - 12AM. Joel is a wonderful fellow guitarist and we explore a variety of genres from jazz/western swing/blues/country. With Beau Sample on bass and Alex Hall on drums.

EARLY WARNING: I'm excited for the return of the Warren Vaché/Russ Phillips Quintet at the Green Mill October 21 and 22. Warren (cornet) will be coming in from NYC and joining Chicago's own Russ Phillips (trombone) for the first time in several years. I'm excited to be in the rhythm section for the reunion of these two brass masters!!

I'm regularly posting new video to my YouTube page. For fans of the Live Stream I ran during the lockdown phase of Covid I recently posted a compilation video of some of the best duet tunes I did with my talented quarantine partner vocalist Petra van Nuis.
