The Andrew Simmerman Band, comprised entirely of Indiana University music students, began as an acoustic pop trio with piano, guitar, and bass. Over time, more players have joined the group, but because each performance has an optimum instrumentation, the band's lineup varies to include any combination of guitar, bass, drums, auxiliary percussion, trumpet, saxophone, always in addition to Andrew on vocals and keyboards. They excel in both the jazz and pop/rock idioms, which allows them to provide appropriate dinner/cocktail jazz, dance-able swing tunes (a la Sinatra or Buble), and/or high-energy dance music (funk, contemporary pop hits, oldies, and more).

The band knows over 100 covers and also can play originals; if requested, they will gladly send a repertoire list so you can hand-pick the songs for your event! Additionally, they often learn songs for specific events (although the number of songs depends on how much advance notice is given). We also take requests live, although frankly, the audience generally asks for songs the booker has already requested :-) We are willing to travel, schedule-permitting, and we are available as a group year-round!

We were recently married in Indianapolis, Indiana. A friend of ours found the ASB online by searching for local artists' videos on youtube. We hadn't seen the band at all before the wedding day, but the entire planning process went perfectly, the communication was professional and timely, and most of all, their performance was AMAZING. Had tons of compliments on the band, their playlist was so versatile, and they learned new songs for us. Would recommend 100% using this group for your event!

Andrew Simmerman is a very talented and professional individual. He and his band (of various size and instruments depending on your preference) perform a variety of different music styles from jazz, blues, rock n roll, top 40, and much much more. His voice is very soothing and he ads a unique flavor of vocals to all of the songs he sings. We hired his band for our wedding on 3/1/14, and everyone continues to talk about how great they were. He sang and played piano during the ceremony, and his band played during dinner and also later in the night for dancing. There was a packed dance floor, and many people singing along. I have had family and friends ask me about him and how I found him- which was actually from, ironically. He is extremely affordable to any other bands that you will find, and one of the best live bands that I have seen perform. I HIGHLY recommend him!!!

Andrew Simmerman Trio was exceptionally professional and easy to work with on our wedding day. I actually feel a bit bad because I was the one that was difficult to reach/make decisions, but Andrew handled it all very well. Showed up on time, set up was no problem, it all worked out flawlessly. They learned 3 new/unique songs for us, which made the event tailored to our tastes. Their performance was 'so cool'. They are young, fresh, full of energy playing classic and more contemporary songs, (very versatile play list is what attracted us- something for everyone). Our guests had THE BEST TIME, many compliments on the band. They really brought life to the evening.
