Andy Crow is well known throughout the Northwest as a top-notch musician, equally at home on the organ and piano. Rich harmonies and creative arrangements have been a hallmark of Andy's style.
 
Andy has played organ since age ten, at which time his teacher told him "he would never learn, never paid attention!" He later attained a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Redlands and a Master of Music Education from the University of Southern California. He has played for radio, TV, churches, banquets, skating rinks, orchestras, bands and for many stage shows.
