We hired Anders for a Christmas party. Anders and his band were amazing and very talented. The guests were dancing non-stop all night. High energy with great mix of songs. We will booking them again.
We hired Anders for a holiday party this past December. He is easy to work with and very talented! The guests loved him.
Response from Anders Drerup:
Its was so much fun to work with Dana and her excellent team! I walked away with three times the christmas spirit I arrived with!
This band was amazing. We hired them for Austin Police Operation Blue Santa Deliver Day. They performance were outstanding and everyone love their energy and music. We will definitely book them for years to come.
Response from Anders Drerup:
Celilia was great and her team were professional and organized. An excellent experience all around and we can't wait to perform for the Operation Blue Santa crowd again next time!
The band was punctual, organized, and most of all - super chill and approachable. Love their personalities and friendliness. We plan on scaling it up for next year’s event and have them kick it with us again!
We took fun videos of the event. Attached are the only photos available for now.
Anders was great at communicating, on time, and was able to provide the perfect atmosphere for our event. It was just himself completely acoustic, and it really showed off how talented he was! Super nice, wonderful to work with, and will definitely be reaching out to him for anything in the future.
Anders & his band were incredible! They were polite, professional, and most importantly: kick a** on stage. Their performance blew me, & everyone at the event, away. I will definitely hire them again. Their originals and covers were great -- anyone who covers The Meters is all right in my book. Thanks for giving a special performance, Anders!
Anders and his team are professional, on time, easy to work with and entertained everyone in the crowd! I can't wait to plan another event so we can have them back. I will recommend them to everyone I know looking for a band.
Response from Anders Drerup:
Aw, you guys were so great to work with too! We had a lovely time with you all too. Thank you for being so professional and easy to work with! A lovely way to kick off our run in Colorado and we can’t wait to do it again!!
We had a blast with Anders! He made our outdoor birthday, pool party surprise amazing! Anders is super talented, communicative, and very easy to work with. He has a highly distinctive style and such a fun personality. Thank you Anders!
I hired Anders to record a song I'd written. I provided the lyrics and a previous recording I'd commissioned through a Swedish composer. I needed the song to be a country version for the USA market. Anders hit the nail on the head the very first time, and with a little tweaking, the song was perfect. I think it has "hit" written all over it. Time will tell. The whole process took only a few days from start to finish. The main thing is that I have more songs to write and record. Anders will be my singing guitarist from here on out... no doubt! You may even be hearing the song on the radio before long. Yes, it's that good. Keep your eye (and ears) out for 'City Gal' by Anders Drerup. I'll be using the song to promote the first book in my series, 'Into Autumn', which inspired the song. Anders will be doing at least three more for the remainder of the books in the series. Why? Because he is amazing at what he does. Are you getting the idea that I'd recommend this guy? Hell yeah!
Price Range: $200 and up.

What to Expect
I am punctual and prepared, if a performance calls for extra equipment I will show up with it and possess the skills to run it. My performances and set lists can be tailored to each client. My performance style has been described as warm and engaging but if I am expected to be "heard but not heard from" I am well versed in delivering that product. If dress code is necessary I am comfortable in everything from casual friday to black tie affair.
Born in Ontario Canada, Anders has covered a lot of ground. From vocalist in Cuban supergroups to playing pedal steel in touring bands across Europe to rock guitarist in bands touring China he has always kept his career moving. At the age of 38 Anders holds an impressive resume including operating a successful recording studio and teaching practice, critically acclaimed stage acting work, credits on more albums than he has fingers and toes and even sang his way to a spot on Nick Jonas' team on NBC's The Voice. Versatility has always been one of Drerup’s strongest skills and he can move seamlessly between several styles of music (and even different languages) without breaking a sweat. His original music has been described as Americana in that it pays frequent and respectful visits to the great American styles: Country, Blues, R&B and Funk. Always with a signature touch of wit and humour. Anders plays and tours with some of Austin's finest musicians. They are just as comfortable wrapping a room around their finger with an original song as they are whipping a room into a frenzy with time tested covers and do so with 100% of their considerable skill and talent. Anders lives in Austin Texas and continues, as always, to work at making the world a better place through music.
Additional Booking Notes
I own and operate a PA system suitable for an audience of approximately 500 people. I do not provide lighting but I am able to rent and run as much or little as is necessary to fill the requirements of the event.
