Andrew Queen realized early in his career that the road was where his fortune and happiness would be found. Starting with local North Carolina bands like Purple Schoolbus, Drew quickly became known for his hard work and friendly demeanor. He was picked up by mouth flugelhorn virtuoso Keller Williams, who introduced Drew to the exciting world of hippie festivals. Drew became an expert at setting up guitars and guitar related products. These talents were expanded as he later worked with the likes of Amos Lee, String Cheese Incident, EOTO, and STS9. He has been with Umphrey’s since early 2011 and has been killing it ever since, though he was introduced to the band’s antics throughout the Big Summer Classic tour in 2005. Drew is responsible for setting up and maintaining all of the gear for Jake, Ryan, Brendan, and Joel. He is truly the man that keeps it running and probably the nicest guitar tech you’ll ever meet.
