McKnight, Andrew Library Concert Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Andrew's solo performances are a bit like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. He delivers his masterfully crafted cinematic vignettes of rural Americans and their struggles in memorable melodies and compelling twists of phrase. With his epic Civil War ballad 'The Road to Appomattox', the uplifting messages of 'Good Things Matter' (Great American Song Contest Winner), and his haunting anti-mountaintop mining song 'Made by Hand', audiences are spellbound from the first to the final note.

Costanzo, Jerry Can't We Be Friends? Music
In 2008, his debut full-length album “Destination Moon,” produced by Andy Farber and accompanied by Farber & his Swing Mavens octet, served up a dozen chestnuts, including the title track, “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die,” “Come Fly with Me” and “Straighten Up and Fly Right.” Showcasing 13 masterful musicians, the project includes tenor, baritone and alto sax, trombone, trumpet, piano, bass and drums. And now, Costanzo’s follow-up disc, “Can’t We Be Friends?” – released on Daywood Drive Records raises the torch to fever pitch, featuring a five-piece rhythm section comprising piano, guitar, percussion, bass and vibraphone. The triptych of 10 songs, which again pays homage to musical heroes who painted the original brush strokes on American standards, thematically personifies Costanzo’s romantic relationships over the decades, embraced with a vibe he describes as “George Shearing meets The Nat King Cole Trio meets Milt Jackson.”
