About Andrew

Andrew Nix, born  22nd August 1968 just outside Selby, North Yorkshire, has established himself on the organ circuit not only as a musician but also as an entertainer. His varied musical repertoire along with his Yorkshire humour has made him one of the country’s favourite performers.

It was when Andrew reached the age of ten that his interest in organs became apparent. His mother had an organ at home and Andrew sat down and learnt several Christmas carols (even though it was in the middle of summer). His parents saw the potential and arranged lessons for him. Although he was taught by two teachers (one being classical) he soon developed his own style.

Shortly after leaving school Andrew was offered three nights a week playing in a local club where he accompanied artistes and played for dancing. This “training” proved priceless as at 17 years old he was appointed Organist and Musical Director for a Theatre Group performing at Butlins, Barry Island. Andrew thoroughly enjoyed this position as he was gaining experience and confidence. After three further seasons with Butlins and one for Haven Holidays Andrew became fully freelance as he was increasingly in demand for concerts and dances nation-wide on both Theatre and Electronic organs.

In May 2000 Andrew started performing on a Roland Atelier and now currently tours with the AT900c  (Freelance). Andrew fell in love with the richness of the Atelier which produces a perfect backdrop for his wide range of playing styles. Audiences are enthralled by the range of sounds and are stunned by the truly authentic Theatre organ sounds which are an asset to Andrew's programme. From Ballads to Latin, Marches to Musicals, Andrew is one of the busiest performers on the circuit performing light hearted shows with a wide range of musical tastes.

He and his good friend Tony Stace are now firmly established as festival organisers. Trading as Topnote Events they host weekend breaks at superb venues:

Mill Rythe Holiday Park, Hayling Island

Kettering Park Hotel & Spa, (4* Shire hotel)

The Cumberland Hotel, Eastbourne. 

Fairfield Manor Hotel (4* Mercure Hotel, YORK).

Full details can be found on their website.

 

Still living in the Selby area Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife and family. Lisa is a qualified Veterinary Nurse.They married in 1993 and they have three lovely daughters, Stacey, Melissa and Ashleigh.
