I am a harpist specializing in latin, swing and classical harp. I have 8 CDs, our latest was on the Grammy roster for best smooth jazz CD and we have distribution in Japan and six European countries. I play many weddings as a solo harpist but my favorite scenario is to play Classical for the ceremony with my husband, Bart, who plays Rock/Pop/Classical guitar (and flute) and then to play latin and swing, very upbeat, lively music for cocktails with Bart who is also a recording session upright bass player here in Los Angeles. There are plenty of song and instrument choices on the website. If you are interested, please feel free to email me for rates, just let me know when and where your event is so I can price accordingly. Also, I welcome any and all song requests. And last but not least, congratulations!


Thanks!

"If you think you've heard it all, check out Lori Andrews, who single-handedly, no . . . double-handedly, redefines the possibilities of the harp and turns it into a funky jazz instrument. Incredible! She's the rhythm, the bass, the melody, all intertwined in a way that you just have to see and hear to believe. Lori's music is creating a new future for an instrument rich in history and . . . she makes it swing!" -Bob James, jazz pianist Read less

Lori was recommended to me by my amazing wedding planner Charley King as I was looking for a harpist for my wedding and was having trouble. Before we met, Lori and I communicated via e-mail regarding song choice. She gave me a long list of songs and I chose some from the list but also picked my own which she was happy to play as well. On the day of my wedding Lori came early to set up and was so pleasant to work with. Even though I wasn't at the cocktail hour I was able to hear her harp playing afterwards as my videographer recorded it for me per request and it was so magical and unlike anything I've ever heard before! I would recommend going with Lori if you are looking for a harpist!

We "gifted" Lori and Bart to our son and his now wife, once we heard them play at Walnut Grove. They were beyond wonderful. On top of being really fun and easy to work with, the music was the best. It made the wedding seem almost surreal as we sat around the walnut trees listening to harp music. We just loved them and their music. They were able to play all the songs that the newlyweds wanted. It was true perfection. I wish we had another function coming up just so we could use them. An absolute delight to deal with on all counts! Thanks, Lori and Bart, for making it such a beautifully memorable event.

I used Lori Andrews for a wedding at the Monarch Resort. She was amazing. She has a huge list of songs & musical styles she can play. She played the Prelude & Ceremony with guitar & violin, then played the dinner hour with an electric bass. She went from classical to jazz (which on harp is pretty cool) without flinching. She offered wonderful suggestions that enhanced the ceremony as well as helping the bride pick the songs. Thanks again Lori! Your were great!

I had the pleasure of working with both Lori Andrews and Bart for our wedding this past August at Eden Gardens Moorpark. They were a hit. We hired them to play a combo on the harp and guitar. The music was beyond anything I could ask for. All our guest loved them. If I ever have another big event, I would definitely hire them within a heartbeat.

Lori is not your typical Harpist, let me say that first off. Lori is one of the best harpist of our time. She was professional, on time, played every song selection in the order I requested, took instruction and direction very well. My guest loved her, and spoke highly of her the day after the wedding. I'm very pleased with her service. If you are looking for a harpist for your special day, I highly recommend booking her, she is friendly, versatile and open to all request. i know there's alot of harpist to choose from, but there is only one Lori. She played the harpist at my ceremony as if we rehearsed many times. She just flowed with my special day and made it that much more special.
She could play almost any song you ask. She played Lana del rey, some John legend, and canon D. I mean she could play almost anything and it sounds great!! She is great! I wish i could use her again, Love Her!

My son and daughter-in-law's wedding was in August. Lori played the music for the processional and recessional. It was more lovely than I can describe. Her music was just heavenly and added such an elegant touch to the entire atmosphere. I know that she worked with my daughter-in-law, who is a professional classical musician, on planning the music and they were more than pleased. In addition to the performance, Lori is just the nicest person ever! I completely recommend her. You not only won't be sorry, you'll be thrilled!

Lori is a consummate professional. Attentive, caring,, ethical, and an extraordinary harpist. Her soaring arpeggio flourishes brought a tear to everyone's eyes. All requests were accommodated and encouraged. My daughter, the bride, had a special request. Lori countered with not one, but two alternative musical arrangements for my daughter to choose.

I am a successful financial professional and, years ago, former professional musician. Lori is an incredible value for what you get....which is perfection!

If you're considering a harpist for your wedding, this is the one you want to hire. Lori's beautiful music was one of my favorite things about my wedding! Lori and I emailed back and forth prior to my wedding and she was very easy to establish a rapport with. Lori offered to help me select music in the weeks leading up to the wedding but I was a bit frenzied at that point and I felt completely comfortable leaving the selection up to her. She did an amazing job. Many guests have commented to me about how much they enjoyed the music. The great variety in the genre of music that Lori is capable of providing is unbelievable. She can rock out on that harp! It's like getting many musicians for the price of one.

Lori and her husband Bart were absolutely wonderful for our ceremony! Lori plays the harp and her husband Bart plays the guitar combined with the Organist from our chapel it was the perfect combination of music for our ceremony! They were able to play all the classic "wedding songs" very easily. But, the real surprise came when we requested more contemporary music. We asked that they play #34 by Dave Mathews Band as our wedding party walked down the aisle and they were even able to play Beautiful Day by U2 as the recessional music. They also weren't deterred when my mom's music loving boyfriend decided to join in the ceremony music with his own harmonica, Bart even said that it made his day! Overall Lori and Bart were super friendly, fun and easy to work with. Very reasonable prices combined with there amazing personality made us happy we went with them to provide the soundtrack to our ceremony.

Lori and Bart have been a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job for my client's wedding. You can truly see the passion they have for their music and how much fun it is for them to play for others. The ceremony music was wonderful and they were able to work seamlessly with the officiant for cues. During the reception, they added the perfect sounds to the party. Extremely professional, musical pros, they never disappoint and I'd highly recommend them for others.
