Andy Swann is back on Thursday nights in Transit!

Our favourite multi-instrumentalist, story teller, deep thinker and all round entertainer, will be on the piano from 6pm on Thursdays. Taking you on a Boogie Woogie trip through the Blues and Rock n Roll and who knows where else, he will be joined on occasion, and whenever he feels like it, by special guests. Grab a martini, pull a stool right up to the piano and challenge him on any request. Thursdays is a rollicking good show, Swanny’s gigs are highly entertaining and we think, good for the soul!

Since then he’s released two  albums - the 2007 release “Who Loves Ya” was critically acclaimed, scoring Album Of the Year at the Vic/ Tas Blues Awards as well as securing the Artist Of the Year Award. Ken Williams of Melbourne’s The Age called it “Certainly my album of the year.” High praise indeed. 2011 release “It’s A Jungle Out There” only solidified Dwyer’s reputation as one of the best in the business.
