Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers for years. Andre is a virtuoso on all the accordion types: single row, double row, triple row and piano key. He effortlessly moves across types to deliver an energetic two-step, traditional Creole waltz, hard-driving blues or a blend that is his own sound.
Although Andre’s instrument of choice is the accordion, he also displays talent on bass guitar, rhythm guitar and drums. He sings traditional songs in original Creole French, and his voice is the perfect blend of rich and soulful tones. As quoted from an article published in Eh Toi magazine 2002, "There is no accordion player in Zydeco that uses his left hand as well as Andre Thierry." While playing Washington, D.C. in 2003, the Washington Post called Andre a “master” at “pumping out fast, funky rhythms on an instrument not usually associated with earthy syncopation. A versatile student of the music, Thierry can't be lumped into Zydeco's old-school R&B-influenced camp or its nouveau, rap-inspired one: He and his band, Zydeco Magic, lay down both soulful, traditional slow-dances and bottom-end-booming kinetic groovers.”
Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic will capture your attention and serve up an unparalleled musical experience that captivates your soul. If you like to dance, Andre will have you moving your feet all night long.
