Testimonials

"The Andy Smith Trio are a great band. Very versatile, and totally professional- Highly recommended" They filled the house at CJC and were a hit with the crowd"
Roger Manins Creative Jazz Club NZ, CREATIVE JAZZ CLUB
Andy Smith and The Andy Smith Trio played smooth and sweet jazz sets at our 20th year in business dinner at the French Cafe, French Kitchen private dining room, on Saturday 8th June. It was a night of celebration and achievement, combined with Andy's inspirational guitar playing and the beautiful warm sound of the upright bass it was a night we will remember for a very long time. The best jazz sounds from The Andy Smith Trio. Thanks Andy for a great night, look forward to hearing you again soon.
