Andrews comes from a family of musicians. Transfixed by the magic and mystery of the city's second-line parades, Andrews
and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along
with their younger cousin Troy “Trombone Shorty,” soaked up life's
musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition
firsthand from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. They also learned the
power of the city's Mardi Gras Indian culture.
Andrews has his regular gigs at such New Orleans clubs as
dba and Three Muses. In recent years he began making waves as a
headliner at the world's biggest block party – the annual New Orleans
Jazz & Heritage Festival where he has ripped it up in the gospel
tent, the blues tent and the jazz tent. “Glen is one of the giant talents of New Orleans music,” says the festival's producer Quint Davis.
