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. Andrews has regular gigs at such New Orleans clubs as dba and Three Muses.
