About Andy Rothstein  

Guitarist Andy Rothstein leads an original band which has best been described as "pure instrumental magic" (Keith "Muzikman" Hannaleck - Muzikreviews.com). Andy has released two independent CD's of his original progressive jazz/rock fusion: Voodoo Tone (2006) and Wit of the Staircase (2009) featuring an incredible lineup of fine musicians including Manolo Badrena, Tom Hammer, Steve Jankowski, Erik Lawrence, Pete Levin, Tony Senatore, Andy Snitzer, Lew Soloff, Luther Rix, Van Romaine and Tom Timko.

Among the circle of musicians he has worked with, Andy has often been described as a versatile and tasteful player who has developed his own sound on the guitar. Some of his recording and performing credits include Mary's Magnet, Tony Senatore, country recording artist "Link," The Prayer, and One More Once in the early days, among numerous others. In addition, Andy has transcribed many guitar folios under the pen name Andy Robyns. Musical transcription credits for Hal Leonard Publishing include Pearl Jam (10), Alice in Chains (Dirt), Nirvana (Incesticide) and Kiss (Greatest Hits) to name just a few.

Andy graduated from Rutgers University where he majored in both Music and Computer Science. It is at Rutgers that Andy had the privilege of studying under the tutelage of both Kevin Eubanks and the late great Ted Dunbar. In addition, he studied privately with both Steve Khan and Vinnie Zummo.
