Andrew's Journey: A Proven Track Record
Andrew's musical odyssey began in high school when he co-organized the Local Output Band Competition in 2001. This event shone a spotlight on North Shore High School bands while nurturing emerging talents. The competition thrived under Andrew's guidance until 2007, a testament to his unwavering support for local talent.

Expanding his dedication, Andrew curated open-air music events across North Shore, featuring iconic gigs at venues like Marlborough Park in Glenfield, Browns Bay Beach, and Onewa Domain. It was during one of these shows that he discovered The Rabble, a band he'd forge a close collaboration with, handling everything from gig bookings to managing their online presence and even embarking on a European tour with them.

Embracing the digital age, Andrew became an early adopter of MySpace and Social Media, skillfully managing The Rabble's online presence and bookings. This digital prowess paved the way for a remarkable 2008 tour across England and Europe, where they shared stages with some of the world's greatest Punk bands. In 2009, Andrew returned briefly to his film and television career.

In 2010, he resumed booking gigs for Kiwi bands and ventured into DJing, infusing Punk, Rock, and Metal energy into his sets. In 2013, Andrew played a pivotal role in transforming Ding Dong Lounge into a live music hotspot in Auckland's CBD. Recognized for his expertise, he joined the venue late in 2012 and served as the booker for over a decade before stepping away in May 2023. While he may not be in the booking game full-time at Ding Dong Lounge, Andrew keeps the music scene connection alive through DJing and hosting club nights.
