A show-stopping frontman with a booming vocal command, expert trombone chops and witty stage banter, Glen David Andrews, known as the “Treme Prince,” is a vital fixture in New Orlean’s second-line jazz scene.  Glen David was recruited into a brass band led by his younger cousin, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, and played in both the New Birth, Lil Rascals, and Tremé brass bands, among others, lending equal measures of musicianship and showmanship to each. Now he fronts his own high-powered ensemble that touches on every style of music in the course of a show. He was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2010. He appeared in three seasons of HBO’s Treme; in numerous documentaries, including Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans, by Lolis Eric Elie, Swiss filmmaker Peter Entell's chronicle of the controversial, post-Katrina proposed closing of St. Augustine Church; Shake the Devil Off, and Spike Lee’s two epics about Katrina, When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts, and If Da Creek Don’t Rise.

Since 1994, the Beat Bama Food Drive benefiting the Food Bank of East Alabama has united students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members in the fight against hunger and poverty in East Alabama.
