The Andy Hersey Band

We are so excited to have Gertie & The T.O. Boyz playing at the fair this year! This award winning Waila band from the Tohono Oodham Nation plays a mix of traditional and modern music. Waila, also known as Chicken Scratch music, originates from acoustic fiddle tunes, and evolved to include Mexican and European styles like polka, mazurka, and chote. “It’s uplifting and upbeat music,” writes band leader Gertie Lopez. “We want people to come out and enjoy themselves listening to some happy music.”                               


Andy Hersey is an Arizona based singer/songwriter. Songwriting has always been a part of Hersey’s life while working other trades; ranch hand, horseshoer, truck-driver, construction and raising a family on Southern Arizona ranches. He now makes his living playing steady shows in Tucson area establishments and a road trip now and then. 
“This set of songs is acoustic based and eclectic Country rock, silly drinking songs, a love song or two, mix in a bit of broken ’spanglish’ and there you have it” says Hersey. “The goal is to have friends rather than fans and to make music a living without being in the music industry”.
