Quotes & Reviews

Nominated for seven awards was singer Mike Roi and his band Roi and the Secret People. Roi and his band were nominated for four awards last year, but didn’t win any. Also nominated for seven awards was Andrew Mark Schaffer.
— John J. Moser (The Morning Call - Allentown, PA) [In Reference to Andrew's 7 nominations for the 2017 Lehigh Valley Music Awards. 9/15/2016.

Schaffer’s intricate guitar work — enhanced by a loop station that allowed him to nail impressive solos over rhythm parts — combined with his improvisational ability on yet-to-be-completed song ideas to captivate those in attendance at Chicago Restaurant’s Club Gravity.
— Gerard Longo (Lehigh Valley Underground)

I’ve had the pleasure of playing a couple open mics where Andrew happened to be there. I was extremely impressed with the wide genre of music Andrew covered during his set. He was not only talented and confident while on stage, but he was also funny and entertaining while keeping the crowd pleased by just being himself. The confidence he shows during his original songs and improvisation is hard to replicate here in the Lehigh Valley. I’ve gotten to know him over the last year or so and he is a great musician and an even better person. I wish him nothing but the best!
— Joey Nikles (Singer/Guitarist for Roots Run Deep)

Andrew is a songwriter and talented guitarist who naturally writes from his heart worn on his sleeve for all to see. From beautiful instrumentals to honest songs about love and loss, Andrew is a refreshing voice in the Lehigh Valley.
— Mike Roi (Lead Singer & Guitarist of Roi & the Secret People, and Teacher at School of Rock in Easton, PA)

Within the past eight years of my own music experience I’ve searched the Lehigh Valley for many different musicians, and above all Andrew Schaffer stands out the most. His music is very relatable from love to loss, happy to sad. His music has a way of staying trapped in your head and will get you moving no mater what. He is and I quote to this day “one of the greatest acoustic guitarists i have ever had the pleasure of hearing, knowing, and playing with.” He among a few others reign highest in talent and overall performance for local musicians in the Lehigh Valley.
— Matthew Trexler (Current Lead Vocalist / Past Dummer for Dead:Stop)

Having diversified my own interests towards hard rock and alternative genres, it is clear as day to me Andrew is a genuine musician who you can listen to just as easily with which you could hold a conversation. His songs and musicianship are a shining example of heart and soul that goes into lyrics, singing, and playing. Plain and simple Andrew’s music makes me hopeful, and I think people need that these days. Here is a guy that knows what he wants. And if you want an entertainer, you want Andrew Schaffer ... Andrew Schaffer has blown me away with his fast thinking, and quick moving fingers sliding all over his vibrant acoustic guitar with the accuracy and speeds rivaling Dave Matthews ... When you want someone to promote your venue, Andrew is the man up to task. I’m convinced he was a promoter for night clubs in a past life because he loves informing his friends and followers on facebook and twitter not only about his own musical stylings, but anyone else in the area that he can tell has a real heart for music. My band Dead:Stop has never received more digital love in the form of statuses urging everyone to listen to our single, like our band page, and buy tickets to our shows than from Andrew Schaffer and we didn’t even ask him to… He just loves music completely and he wants people to get a taste of good music for themselves whether it is himself or bands he knows can make a difference in the music scene.
— Andrew Cooper (Bassist, Vocalist for Dead:Stop)
