Award Winning Performer
“It's tough to find entertainment in New Zealand that is truly professional. Andre is that rare combination of professionalism, talent and quality that is so important.”
In 2006 Andre was awarded Top Ten status by Music Wairarapa Incorporated, and was selected as one of the Performing Artists for Zest Wairarapa, an inaugural festival showcasing Beer, Wine & Food from around New Zealand, set in Wairarapa’s premium outdoor setting at QEII Park.
Andre has since been sought after for other high-profile public functions, such as Wairarapa’s annual Bride of the Year, where discreet yet top quality live music has been an integral part of the proceedings.
Winner 2009 People's Choice Awards
In 2009 Andre was announced Winner of the People's Choice Awards for best nationwide bands by the Corporate Events Guide. These awards honour New Zealand companies and individuals who have excelled in their field of expertise and directly relate to the quality of service being offered across New Zealand.
