Throughout his career, Andy has performed around the world on both drum set and percussion as well as lead and backing vocals with artists of all calibers in an extremely wide variety of musical genres including: Jazz, rock, pop, country, alternative, classic rock, jam band, reggae, electronic, hip hop, instrumental, metal, big band, acoustic, latin, afro-cuban, gospel, South Indian Carnatic, Folk, and Americana.

Currently, Andy Weaver is the primary drummer for international touring artist Manny Charlton (formerly of Nazareth), Fort Worth based orchestral rock group ALAN, local acoustic rock duo Chasing Rent, and works regularly with Samantha Newark (voice of JEM and The Holograms), L.A. producer Gary McGrath, Dean Minnerly (former keys and organist of 3 Dog Night) and many other local DFW based artists.  “Everyone has an artistic voice inside of them dying to be heard, I just provide tools to express themselves through the international language of music.”
