Andy West’s musical legacy will forever be connected to his work with Steve Morse and The Dixie Dregs. The pioneering instrumental rock fusion group — of which Andy was the founding member bassist — made waves in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s with an eclectic sound that blended elements of southern rock, prog rock, classical, jazz, and bluegrass into a completely original style. Outside of the Dregs, West is also known for his collaborations with Mike Keneally, Henry Kaiser, Paul Barrere, Joaquin Liévano and Vinnie Moore, in groups like The Mistakes and Zazen. In addition to his musical output, Andy’s led a successful parallel career in the software industry.
