"WOW! Quite a show." -Blues Society of Western PA newsletter, Jan. 2012

"This year’s (Blues Go Pink) band again featured the lovely and talented Andrea Iglar on her wailing sax. ... She had people dancing, laughing, and just re-energizing after a long day."  -Blues Society WPA, 2009

"She has her own following and loves to interact with the audience. She can also sing!"  -Blues Society WPA, 2008

“[Dave] crosses over into jazz, which gives his daughter Andrea Iglar a chance to display her sizzling alto, tenor and soprano sax playing.”  –CD Review, Beaver County Times/Allegheny Times, 2006



Bio
Andrea sings, strums guitar, slams tam and blows tenor, alto and soprano sax with Dave Iglar Band, Dave Iglar Trio and DnA Duo. She joined Dave's band in 2003. Previously, she played and recorded with musicians and bands in Kent, OH and Seattle, WA.

In fourth grade, Andrea chose alto sax as her band instrument. She played in school bands then kept her beat-up Bundy in a closet until after college, when her Music Chromosome really kicked in (her dad inherited the same chromosome, an extra one passed down Iglar-to-Iglar). Now she can’t stop gigging. She won’t say where she got her lungpower.
