Biography

Andy Pizzo is an established trombonist in the Baton Rouge/New Orleans areas who strives to be at his best, no matter what the gig calls for. Whether playing along the Gulf Coast or getting an opportunity to play in New York City, Andy brings the trombone to the forefront of whatever band he is performing with. He performs in several bands of various styles; jazz, funk, latin, rock, blues, classical, etc. What makes his playing unique is when he combines his natural trombone sound with the effects of a series of guitar pedals. He brings this out especially in his own band, "THE ANDY PIZZO PROJECT". Andy does many things within his musical career: leading bands, being a featured soloist, being a studio recording artist, performing as a lead trombone player, being a section trombone player, as a private instrumental tutor, and his day job as a middle school band director. There is a much deeper biography on ANDY PIZZO on his website: www.andypizzo.com and you can also get more on him at www.myspace.com/andypizzo and his band at www.myspace.com/theandypizzoproject.

Lyrics

Boogie Bus

Written By: Andy Pizzo

Welcome to my Boogie Bus, we will take a ride.
I’ll take you to my favorite place, and show you a good ol’ time.
Come on girl, step right up, tell your momma good-bye
For I’m takin’ you out tonight and I’ll have you home by 9 the next mornin’!
Yeah, we’re gonna have some fun,
Watch out ya’ll we’ll tear this town up!
Yeah, the boogie bus, oh what a place to party!

Hey, good lookin’, why don’t you come for a ride?
Me and the boys are lookin’ for a party tonight.
Call your friends quick, tell them about this bus.
They don’t know what they’ll be missin’ cause they’ll have so much damn fun.
I want you to sit by me, oh you’re such a sexy thing,
Oh yeah!

My Boogie Bus, it’s the place where everyone loves to play.
All you girls should step right up and take a seat on my ride!
Hey, hot momma, your seat is right her e,
For you and me will kick it up and get it into gear!
One (uh)! Two (uh)! The engine’s startin’ now,
Come on babe, why don’t you scoot right over here!
