Guitar, Electric Bass
Andrew Stickman began his life in music at the age of 11, taking bass guitar lessons. After four years of learning he gravitated to the guitar, where it was offered by his high school. There he exchanged many heavy metal riffs and solos with peers and musicians who he still plays with to this day.
Andrew played in several consistently gigging rock, blues, and metal bands before deciding to take guitar more seriously by studying classical guitar at The University of Nebraska at Omaha. During his schooling, Andrew still managed to play lead guitar in a locally award winning production of “Rent” the Musical, began teaching privately and at music stores, sat in as a studio musician for various local artists while playing with multiple album producing rocks bands, played bass in a touring pop-flemenco band with his professor, and founded the Omaha Guitar Trio in 2010; a group continuously nominated by the Omaha Entertainment and Art Awards, and won best Jazz in 2013.
After graduating UNO in 2012, Andrew, along with OGT, has toured numerous states and schools, taught and hosted masterclasses, and gives recitals and salon concerts regularly, spreading music education with the voice of the guitar.
