Andrew was gifted with natural musical talent and is often seen during performances moving from one instrument to another. This unique musical ability was recognized early on in the Chicago scene. When his age could still be measured in single digits, Andrew was signed as an on-camera actor, jingle singer and voice-over artist by the same agency that handled such notables as Freddy Savage, Daryl Hanna and Tempest Blodsoe. Over the last 20 years Andrew has recorded radio and television commercials for such prominent companies as: McDonald’s, Domino’s Pizza, Sears, Dean Foods, Craft, Capt’n Crunch, Chevy Automotive, JCPenny and many more. Many still remember Andrew as the Former lead Singer of 7th. Heaven from 2002-2005. Andrew left that band at the very end of 2005 to persue a new direction in his career.
Since then Andrew has gone on to share the stage with artists and groups such as Adam Lambert, Kip Winger, Neon Trees, Train, Santana, Brett Michaels, Hansen, Blue Oyster Kult, Firehouse, Europe, Wasp,Warrant, Firehouse and countless others. He has been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, WGN, and FOX and has performed at nearly every major venue and festival in Chicago as well as thousands of events for millions of satisfied attendies. Microsoft, McDonalds, United Airlines, Party City, Culvers, and CVS, are just a few of the organizations that have trusted Andrew to perform at their events.
Covering songs that sound like the original are an Andrew Blake specialty. His exceptional vocal range and ability to manipulate his voice to sound like the recording made him a perfect fit as the frontman for the nationally recognized and celebrated groups, the SPAZMATICS and AFRODISIACS. These globally popular, tongue-in-cheek, party bands use comedy, theme costuming and crowd interaction to liven things up while playing exceptional music from chosen eras and genres. During this time, Andrew also founded the band, ACCORDING TO ANDREW, which has been pleasing nightclub and festival audiences for almost 10 years.
All these years of entertaining creativity have been the foundation for the creation and design of the Andrew Blake Band , formed in 2012—dedicated to being one of the premier wedding and private event bands in the Midwest.
