I am a harpist specializing in latin, swing and classical harp. I have 8 CDs, our latest was on the Grammy roster for best smooth jazz CD and we have distribution in Japan and six European countries. I play many weddings as a solo harpist but my favorite scenario is to play Classical for the ceremony with my husband, Bart, who plays Rock/Pop/Classical guitar (and flute) and then to play latin and swing, very upbeat, lively music for cocktails with Bart who is also a recording session upright bass player here in Los Angeles. There are plenty of song and instrument choices on the website. If you are interested, please feel free to email me for rates, just let me know when and where your event is so I can price accordingly. Also, I welcome any and all song requests. And last but not least, congratulations!
NOTE: we have moved to the Palm Desert area so will no longer be servicing the Los Angeles area. thanks!
for your funny bone: here is the skit I did on TV recently:

Cool and hip pop wedding tunes playlist:
"If you think you've heard it all, check out Lori Andrews, who single-handedly, no . . . double-handedly, redefines the possibilities of the harp and turns it into a funky jazz instrument. Incredible! She's the rhythm, the bass, the melody, all intertwined in a way that you just have to see and hear to believe. Lori's music is creating a new future for an instrument rich in history and . . . she makes it swing!" -Bob James, jazz pianist

A talented and professional harpist who can add magic to your event!
Lori was absolutely amazing! Beyond being completely professional and an incredible musician, Lori is one of the sweetest people I've met!Sent on 05/21/2019
From the beginning, Lori was very informative and responsive to all my emails and texts. She sent over a long list of songs that she could play/we could choose from and encouraged recommendations for new songs. Since our venue was a little unique, she agreed to meet us there for a walkthrough and to make sure she knew where to set up and familiarize herself with the location.
With only a couple weeks to go, we thought it'd be fun to incorporate some Star Wars music to our May the 4th wedding and Lori happily agreed to learn a new song for us! Despite the wind working against us the day of our wedding, Lori played flawlessly (without sheet music), including our newly requested song, and all the others we requested. All of our guests were impressed with the music during our ceremony and dinner, most of them telling me it made everything "magical."
I'd absolutely recommend Lori to any event you may be considering a harpist for, it was an absolute pleasure working with her, she made everything so easy.

Lori was recommended to me by my amazing wedding planner Charley King as I was looking for a harpist for my wedding and was having trouble. Before we met, Lori and I communicated via e-mail regarding song choice. She gave me a long list of songs and I chose some from the list but also picked my own which she was happy to play as well. On the day of my wedding Lori came early to set up and was so pleasant to work with. Even though I wasn't at the cocktail hour I was able to hear her harp playing afterwards as my videographer recorded it for me per request and it was so magical and unlike anything I've ever heard before! I would recommend going with Lori if you are looking for a harpist!Sent on 02/10/2017

Comm'mon!! Let's do the day all over again! I had a BLAST playing your wedding, thank you so much for the beautiful review, xoxo Lori

We "gifted" Lori and Bart to our son and his now wife, once we heard them play at Walnut Grove. They were beyond wonderful. On top of being really fun and easy to work with, the music was the best. It made the wedding seem almost surreal as we sat around the walnut trees listening to harp music. We just loved them and their music. They were able to play all the songs that the newlyweds wanted. It was true perfection. I wish we had another function coming up just so we could use them. An absolute delight to deal with on all counts! Thanks, Lori and Bart, for making it such a beautifully memorable event.Sent on 12/21/2016

Very professional, very accommodating and very good!
Lori is very professional, organized, and punctual. She does a wonderful job at making sure every moment of your Ceremony/Reception/Cocktail hour is memorable. When she plays her harp its absolutely breathtaking. We highly recommend Lori Andrews and that's why she is on our preferred vendor list!
You have never heard a harp played like this. Lori and her husband will blow you away with their music. They can go from very traditional to very hip and fun all on the harp! A must have at your wedding!
