Andy Gregory

Host/Producer, The Local 518 Show

Andy Gregory is a Capital Region native, architectural design professional, and supporter of the local arts. During the day he helps manage construction design and building projects for clients. Most other times he can be found supporting the local musicians in almost any way possible.

As a contributing writer and reporter-at-large to the Albany, NY Times Union local music blog, Andy has provided reports, reviews and commentary on various local music scene musicians, bands, and events. http://blog.timesunion.com/localmusic/

Andy has been co-host to Mike Guzzo on CRUMBS Café. CRUMBS is short for Capital Region Ultimate Musicians and Band Site – a website geared toward providing resources and features for local musicians. The half-hour podcast/radio show, heard on WEXT, features local bands and musicians that stop into the CRUMBS Studio for an interview and perform a (mostly) acoustic set of original songs.

As a service to even the most casual local music fan, Andy has provided quarterly reports on videos and recordings released by Capital Region musicians, bands, and artists through the CRUMBS Local Music blog at the Albany Times Union website.

Andy played guitar, sang and managed a few bands from high school on, until tendonitis severely curtailed that activity. Andy still has his favorite Les Paul and keeps a Taylor GS Mini ready to go, for when he gets the urge break out a few riffs – or at least for when he might get “the call”.

Andy attends as many local music shows as he can, whether at a house concert, in local clubs and big boxes, and festivals. Over the years, Andy has contributed to over a hundred local arts projects, whether directly or through funding platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Sellaband, and PledgeMusic.

When asked what Andy’s favorite part of having a place in the local music scene, he says “It allows me to be able to help, in some small way, local bands, artists and singer/songwriters achieve success in what they love to do. Whether making the big time or just having music as a successful career choice. Also, the camaraderie can be a lot of fun!”
