Recently featured in 20th Century Guitar Magazine, noted guitarist Andy Rothstein leads an original band which has best been described as "pure instrumental magic" (Keith "Muzikman" Hannaleck - Muzikreviews.com). He recently released an independent CD of his original progressive jazz/rock fusion; Voodoo Tone (2006), that features bassist Tony Senatore, drummer Lou Petto, trumpeter Steve Jankowski, saxaphonist Tom Timko, as well as a guest appearance by guitarist Vinnie Zummo.
Among the circle of musicians he has worked with, Andy has often been described as a versatile and tasteful player who has developed his own sound on the guitar. Some of his recording and performing credits include Mary's Magnet, Tony Senatore, country recording artist "Link," The Prayer, and One More Once in the early days, among numerous others. In addition, Andy has transcribed many guitar folios under the pen name Andy Robyns. Musical transcription credits for Hal Leonard Publishing include Pearl Jam (10), Alice in Chains (Dirt), Nirvana (Incesticide) and Kiss (Greatest Hits) to name just a few.
Andy graduated from Rutgers University where he majored in both Music and Computer Science. It is at Rutgers that Andy had the privilege of studying under the tutelage of both Kevin Eubanks and the late great Ted Dunbar. In addition, he studied privately with both Steve Khan and Vinnie Zummo.
