GET TO KNOW SOME OF OUR REGULAR PERFORMERS
Before the age of 29, the only singing Andy ever did was with Barbra Streisand. In his room as a teenager singing duets with her (she never knew…). At 29 he decided to audition for the San Diego Opera to make some extra money. He found a vocal coach in the Reader, learned an opera song that he could audition with and was signed to be in the chorus for ONE opera.
He stayed with opera for quite a while. During that time he sang a pop song with his new vocal coach and decided he loved to sing that music. The rest, as they say, is history.
Andy went to Inn at the Park and was invited to sing with piano player Kristi Rickert. He sang, received a lot of applause, and was hooked.
Andy has been entertaining audiences in San Diego for many years now. He often performs with Nathan Fry. Andy says this about their partnership, “The perfect musical blend of baritone/tenor, preparation/improvisation, control/mayhem, head/heart, accident/intention. What are you waiting for? See you there – wherever there is.”
DON LEMASTER (KEEP IT ON THE DL)
Don has been involved in theatre for the past 30 years, getting his start at Moonlight Amphitheater, then on to staff accompanist at SDSU, many productions as band leader at Lamb’s Players, Musical Director at Performance Riverside for 7 years, and is currently resident Musical Director/Conductor/Orchestra Contractor for San Diego Musical Theatre. He was nominated for an Ovation Award for Performance Riverside’s production of 1776 in 2004, honored with a San Diego Theater Critics Circle Award for Outstanding musical direction for SDMT’s inaugural production of The Full Monty in 2007, and for The Sound Of Music in 2013. Don L and Ria Carey, his fabulous singing partner of almost 20 years, have worked together at MA4, Inn at the Park, and the Imperial House.
The soulful Janice Edwards says, “Singing has always been a part of my life. Music is God’s universal language of the world. What would we do without it? I love singing all music. I have sung everything from funk to country, but my love is gospel and jazz.”
Janet Hammer’s music career is multifaceted. She actively performs throughout Southern California with multiple bands and has toured worldwide, opening for such name acts as Sheryl Crow, the Pointer Sisters, and the Platters. She has worked with musicians from groups including Maynard Ferguson, Natalie Cole, Gordon Goodwin, and the Righteous Brothers. Her recordings include radio jingles, studio work, and several CDs, one of which was nominated for best jazz recording of the year by San Diego Music Awards.
Born and raised in New Orleans, LA., much of Ken Ard’s early musical training consisted of jazz and blues. He began playing piano with a Dixieland combo at age 9, and played professionally in combos during his high school years at Holy Cross. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Music (Piano Performance) from the University of New Orleans, he went on to receive a Master of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, later studying with jazz great Ellis Marsalis.
“The Delta Queen” and “Storyville, A Sweet Sportin’ Proposition” (co-written by Lyla Hay Owen), are two of Ard’s complete, two-act original musical theater productions which have been produced to date.
Kenny moved to San Diego in 1987 and continues to perform and teach. He currently sits on the faculty of Grossmont College and San Diego Mesa College in San Diego, and is a member of the Academic Senate at Grossmont.
