TMP 117 Andre Bohren Goes for Baroque

Growing up on the road with Spencer Bohren, his troubadour father, Andre saw the music game from the inside out. His early rock and roll affinity for drums and guitars led to playing with Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes and Rory Danger and the Danger Dangers. His classical piano mastery led to symphonic bookings and a drive to present the repertoire in the venues of the common man. As the producer for his father’s final collaboration with songwriting collective the Write Brothers, “Into the Sky,” Andre brings the family tradition full circle. His membership in the 610 Stompers, an all man dance troupe, shows he doesn’t take himself too seriously. That quality serves him well as he faces the Troubled Men. Topics include Canal St. drag races, Mid-city car burglaries, classic obits, college openings, canine COVID, presidential idiocy, a music school band, a family on tour, home schooling, a white sheep, rock clichés, classical live-streams, the Buddy D. parade, tough auditions, the Whippersnappers, theatrical rockabilly, Moby Dick, Chaz Fest, Jim McCormick, a diagnosis, a final recording session, a Panther Burns set, lessons learned, a record release, future dates, a Circle Bar rent party, and much more.
