“I had the pleasure recently to hear the Andréa Petrity Trio perform live in concert at Lolita’s Lounge in Calgary. It’s an excellent trio that played interesting original compositions and refreshing approaches to standards. The trio displays an elegant and economical finesse in it’s approach to the piano trio and I enjoyed the evening thoroughly, as did the capacity audience present on that evening.”

“What a fantastic night listening to Andréa Petrity at Lolita’s Lounge! I knew it would be good; I’ve been a fan for years, but I never expected to be so moved and utterly entertained by her most recent compositions and arrangements. Andréa’s music always tells a story - at times deeply personal, often playful. Her skill, talent and willingness to share make her not only an exceptional musician, but a truly great performer.”
~ A. Thorgrimsson
“… I attended a concert at Lolita’s Lounge, a premier jazz venue in Calgary. With little exception all the music and arrangements were written by Miss Petrity. I was surprised at the quality of music she had written and performed. I enjoyed the music throughout the evening. The venue was full and the crowd obviously shared my opinion as to the quality of the compositions and arrangements…in short, she is an exceptional musician.”
~ H.M. Beaumont

"I have known Andréa for 13 years. She is always a pleasure to work with and a wizard at the jazz piano. I have booked her for many of my house parties and she has always "made" the party for my assembled guests, playing standards or whatever is requested in the background."
~ Henry M. Beaumont
