He continues to perform at global noble venues all over the world vocalizing such hits as “Smooth” with the Santana band, which became the largest selling album next to Michael Jacksons Thriller.
Andy is busy as a prolific DJ song writer, and producer, crafting his own music style which he calls “Souleros”.
