The Jazz Guitar of
Andy Brown


Updated January 2023

I'll be at Winter's Jazz Club in Chicago Wednesday, January 11th with a terrific Chicago quartet featuring Jeremy Kahn on piano, Dennis Carroll on bass and Neil Hemphill on drums. We have two sets that evening, one at 7:30 and one at 9:30. The theme of the music this Wednesday will be Swing To Bop: From Duke Ellington to Charlie Parker. We've got some great tunes already picked out for the gig and I always enjoy playing with these great musicians! Hopefully we will play a couple of songs you remember and a couple you will hear for the first time.

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

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.

Wednesdays - Petra van Nuis/Andy Brown voice/guitar duo at Hemmingway's Bistro in Oak Park from 6PM-9PM. Hemmingway's is a fantastic restaurant and Petra and I so happy to resurrect their Wednesday jazz nights (I'll be absent 1/11 and 2/8).

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. Sunday Sets in Jan/Feb 2023 are at 7PM and 9:15PM. With drummer Phill Gratteau, bassist Joe Policastro and pianist Jeremy Kahn.

***Early Warning: I'll be in NYC playing at the wonderful jazz club Mezzrow in Greenwich Village on Friday/Saturday March 10 and 11 as part of the fabulous saxophonist Harry Allen's trio!***

I'm regularly posting new video to my YouTube page.
