You bring em, he sings em! Spend an evening with singer and pianist Andrew Walesch, relishing in the songs we all love from the songbooks of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. Songs of romance, levity and unrequited love. It’s a night all about the audience, so come taste the wine, come to the cabaret.

Like many before him, singer and pianist Andrew Walesch manages to encapsulate cosmopolitan sophistication and the self-effacing charm of a country boy.

Whether composing and arranging or appearing as a solo artist or with a big band, Walesch, who crisscrosses the country playing dates big and small, is as respectful of his predecessors as he is ready to leap into the unknown and chart a new course.

In his sold-out monthly shows with his 10-piece band, Walesch is both traditionalist and iconoclast. His audiences include jazz enthusiasts of a certain age as well as a younger crowd compelled by his down-home insouciance and the knowing irreverence of a tried-and-true American nightclub entertainer.

Walesch’s vocal and piano chops, along with his knack for finding and interpreting a great lyric, have led to great opportunities, including an appearance on the nationally syndicated NPR broadcast Mountain Stage and, more recently, an invitation to perform at the 33rd Annual Cabaret Convention at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Andrew Walesch is now residing in Phoenix, Arizona where he serves as artistic director at the world-renowned Musical Instrument Museum.

The Peterson Family is often referred to as “Minnesota’s First Family of Music.” Everyone in the Peterson Family is a musician/singer, including extended family, and the next generation.

The Peterson Family has played with Dizzy Gillespie, Bob Dylan, Steve Miller, Prince, Kenny Loggin’s, Michael Bolton and countless others.
