"If you weren't in the Gospel Tent on Sunday at the close of New Orleans Jazz Fest 2011, you can't appreciate his ability to summon energies of prodigious scope in the name of God almighty. Approximating the power released by a six-pack of hydrogen bombs detonated at tent central, carrying his audience along on a wild ride from one detonation to the next, Andrews was searingly, exhaustingly astonishing" nola.com / May 7, 2011


"Day three's showstopper was Glen David Andrews, who rocked the blues, took it to church and carried it into the moshpit. The gospel/R&B singer and trombonist played an electrifying set. Andrews bellowed, leaped in the air, fell to his knees, waved a yellow handkerchief and crowd-surfed — twice. His rollicking performance accommodated everything from Down in the Tremé to a Cajunized version of The Clash's Should I Stay or Should I Go."
USA Today Jazzfest review, May 2, 2011


It may have been the most raucous night in the 25-year history of the Dakota, including both locations. It’s the only time I’ve felt the floor move. People stood on the mezzanine, the stairs, at the bar, in the doorways. They screamed. They jumped up and down. They raised their hands and shook their behinds and sang along.

"New Orleans has a long history of amazing performers whose legend never completely translates to the outside world... when a local artist breaks through at Jazzfest, it is a spectacular thing to witness. This fest it happened to Glen David Andrews...it was as if some otherworldly force took over him during a performance in the Gospel Tent that was completely transformative...he was a combination of James Brown and Prince...people were clamoring to touch him, to take a spark from this burning light of a spiritual force in their midst." excerpt from review by John Swenson, June 2009 OffBeat Magazine


"One of the giant talents of New Orleans." Quint Davis, Producer, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, May 1, 2009

"Andrews is a charismatic vocalist whose improvisational skills and command over any situation he’s involved in places him among the top ranks of New Orleans singers..." John Swenson OffBeat Feb. 2009


He is one of the most amazing vocalists alive today -- his billowing baritone is like a horn instrument itself -- and he is an incredible entertainer. He sanctifies, electrifies, hellafies. If you weren't dancing at this show you were dead. John Nova Lomax - Houston Press


“Aside from being a great musician, Glen David has absorbed a fading tradition. He's a link for his generation to something important. But he also has a rare enthusiasm and energy that makes it all special and exciting for even casual listeners.”
Ben Jaffe - Preservation Hall
