“When designing my set up I needed to make it slim instead of round because we had to have a pathway between the drums and percussion. There is a moment in the show where an actor enters the pit and climbs a ladder that is positioned directly in front of the glockenspiel. That is why I have the 23" timpani behind the 29" and 26", and the bass drum mounted from the ceiling.

It worked out well to have the vibraphone and xylophone in this position because there is a lot of back and forth between the two."

Andy is a proud endorser of Pearl/Adams Percussion, Innovative Percussion Sticks and Mallets, and Paiste Cymbals.

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."
