Description

Andre's story begins July 9, 1979, when he was born in Richmond, California. Both of his parents hail from Louisiana, and Andre's childhood was deeply influenced by his maternal grandparents, the late Houston Pete Pitre (Pa-Pa as they called him) from Basile, Louisiana and his loving grandmother, Mama Lena Pitre. Andre grew up experiencing the French Creole (La-La) dances his grandparents held at their church. As a youngster, Andre was captivated by Zydeco great, Clifton Chenier who he met during a visit to the Pitre home -- and when he was given his first accordion, he began teaching himself to play by listening to his music.
