Andy Schneider, Blues Before Sunset, Des Moines Iowa, Friday Night

Andy is hardly new to us in NW Iowa, but he is to Des Moines. If you are in Des Moines on Friday the 13th!!!!!! Check him out, also be sure to check out all of our new lakeside accommodations in Downtown Des Moines!! (So far so good, the water is up to the bridges, but Court Ave, after a brief scare this afternoon is still dry at 11:20pm Central Time US)

BTW, Frank what do I have to do to get a gig?!?!?!? I mean Andy, and Eric, but not me?!?!?!? ARGHGHGHGHGH. Me thinks you are carrying on this grudge too long:-)

Newcomer Andy Schneider June 13

Rain…what? We don’t need no more stinkin’ rain! Thankfully it looks like Friday will be clear and dry for Blues Before Sunset. So drive, walk or paddle on down to the State Historical Building and forget all about this flooding foolishness.

Get a load of the cutie we have this week – Charles City, Iowa native (and current NYC resident) Andy Schneider. He’s new to our series this year and promises to be nothing if not entertaining. Did I mention that he plays all the instruments and sings too?

To introduce him as a one-man band may not prepare you fully, nor do justice to the authenticity of the music. Andy Schneider preaches the blues: playing 8-string guitar (a combination of both bass and lead guitars), harmonica, drums and singing. Simultaneously. With a reverent nod to his blues and country roots, Schneider reinvents the traditional

bluesman's role, igniting the music with a fire and passion that’s contagious. Check out his Web site: to read more about this newcomer to BBS.

Blues Before Sunset is family friendly, free and open to the public. Beer, wine, bottled water, soft drinks available for sale and an assortment of food vendors will be selling hot foods. People attending the event should plan to bring their own seating.

Blues Before Sunset is sponsored by the State Historical Society of Iowa and Central Iowa Blues Society with promotional support proudly driven by 100.3 The BUS and Capital 106.3, “quality music from then and now” and additional support by Baratta’s restaurant.
