Andrew Healey: Solo Singer & Guitarist

Live music makes an event more special. What do you have planned, a wedding, a corporate function, a casual get-together? As a solo singer and guitarist, I play the classics from the great like The Beatles, Crowded House and Chris Isaak. 

 

About me

I’ve been playing music for over 20 years. I started in bands, but over the last 10 years or so I’ve focused on solo and duo work. I’ve played all kinds of gigs over the years, including performing a couple’s special song while the man proposed. I was also the resident musician playing four nights a week on the replica paddle steamer Waipa Delta. 

 If your favourite song isn’t on the list, let me know and I’ll do my best to learn it. To hear what I sound like, check out the demo below. 

“Andrew was professional, timely and a pleasure to work alongside. He took the lead after just one of the six ceremonies, which was brilliant, as he came in and did his performances with little and no overseeing needed, which is immensely helpful when staff have to be in several different places at once. I was happily book Andrew again if the brief required similar services.” —  Siemone Rawson, Event Co-ordinator, Campus Life,  Auckland Massey University

Being prepared

I like to be prepared. I can’t help it. So, I usually arrive about an hour before I’m due to start. This way I can make sure everything is operational. 

Getting the volume right 

Loud music is not helpful if your guests are trying to talk with each other. So, I do a brief sound check before I start to make sure the volume is right. Let me know if I you want me to turn down or up. 

"Hi Andrew, I just wanted to personally write to you and thank you sincerely for your excellent efforts and wonderful playing at our special event. I really appreciated being able to rely on you to be on time, bring your own gear and deliver a fabulous array of songs that suited our audience. It was also very good of you to be flexible and play a background role that allowed people to both enjoy your music and singing and still catch up with each other. Thank you again for contributing to what was a highly successful evening."— Tania Harris, Site Safe.  

My Routine

I can play up to four, 50-minute sets with breaks of 15 minute in between. If required, I can play music through my sound system while I’m taking a break.

Speeches

If you need a sound system for speeches, I am happy to provide mine for the period I’m booked. Let me know in advance.
