“Whether it’s with the salsa band VIVAZ! or his own group The Andy Pizzo Project, it has always been a pleasure to play with Andy over the past years.  Besides from being an exceptional soloist, he is also a great team player that communicates well both on and off the stage.  Andy possesses the leadership it takes to direct an entire horn section as well as managing his own band.  I honestly can’t think of any other band mate of mine over the years that has proven to be as responsible, motivated, creative, and fun!”
