Overview:
There are cassette tapes by "The Andy Band" dating back to 1979, when Andy was 14 years old, and he is still an avid recording musician. Sometimes The Andy Band is all about "hit record and go" improvisation, other times it's all about one-man-band multi-tracking in the studio. Since 2010, Andy has been playing some of these songs live near his new home in Vermont at open mics. He relishes the thrill of improvising with an audience, as well as singing three-part harmonies and playing bass with players there. But he also loves building up a song with layers and layers of Andys, singing and playing everything.

E.B.A.

Years of Activity:
1978-1995

Overview:
Started as Voyager in 1979. Briefly included Pete Downes as rhythm guitarist. Changed name to The Raid in 1981, and to Everything But Anchovies in 1986. Played about 85 gigs around Ithaca, NY and a few nearby towns between 1980-1989. Most were at The Nines (16), second-most at Oliver's (11), third-most at the Hidden Valley 4H camp (11), and fourth-most at T.J. Tuesday's (8). After the last gig, a live TV broadcast in November 1989, we didn't play again until 1991, when we got together for a reunion jam at Andy's new house (see Spreading More Jam). We did likewise at Jon's new house in 1993 for the first Voyager reunion, then in 1995 we started getting together for EBA improv sessions. This evolved into Killer Whirlpool by 1996.
Voyager ('90s improv)
Members: 
Pete Downes - vocals, guitars
Jon Morse - drums
Tim Odell - bass, vocals
Andy Wyatt - guitar, vocals

Years of Activity:
1993-1997

Overview:
This started with a huge blizzard at the first recorded reunion of Voyager. Pete had moved to Lansing, Michigan in 1980, and in 1993 he came back to Ithaca and had an epic jam in an unbelievable April blizzard that dumped 5 feet of snow on Ithaca. Pete blew us away with his vocal improvisation and rock improv musical spark. EBA had always started rehearsals with an improv that occasionally included a vocal melody, but Pete took it to another level. This inspired some EBA improv sessions then Killer Whirlpool and Killer Voyage as we added more players.
Killer Whirlpool
Members: 
Pete Bosanko - congas, guitars, vocals
Jon Morse - drum kit
Tim Odell - bass, guitars, vocals
Tommy Whittle - blues harp, slide guitar, bugle, trombone, saxaphone, congas, vocals
Andy Wyatt - vocals, guitars, bass

Years of Activity:
1996-present

Overview:
Evolved from EBA, perhaps as a reaction to the rehearsed routines of EBA and The Naked Blues. Started as "No Repeat Tuesdays" at Jon's house with EBA plus Tom from the Naked Blues and PeBo, who Andy knew from his day job. Also inspired by the Voyager reunions of 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1996 where Pete D. demonstrated his improvisation attitude.
Killer Voyage
Members: 
Pete Bosanko - congas, guitars, vocals
Pete Downes - vocals, guitars
Jon Morse - drums
Tim Odell - bass, vocals
Tommy Whittle - harp, guitar, bugle, vocals
Andy Wyatt - guitars, vocals

Years of Activity:
1997-present

Overview:
The mid-'90s Voyager reunion improv sessions inspired EBA to do the same and add members to become Killer Whirlpool. So, naturally, when Pete D came back, Killer Whirlpool + Voyager = Killer Voyage. This is a super collaboration of dudes dedicated to the magic of improvised music. The Voyager core has played together for more than 30 years. It gets telepathic. It gets pathetic. It gets wild. It gets inspired.
