  Summary  

John D'Andrea is an American television composer, arranger and music writer.

  Biography  

D'Andrea, as a boy, was interested in being a musician, due to his father's career playing the saxophone in local New Jersey bands, and his father, because of this, gave him a saxophone for his ninth birthday. Years later, D'Andrea attended the Arts High School for music and the Manhattan School of Music in New York. At the same time he, like his father, participated in local New Jersey bands, as a player, singer, and arranger.

D'Andrea met Bob Marcucci in 1963. Marcucci secured a recording contract for him as a singer with Sinatra's label "Reprise Records", which caused him to become a regular on the 60's network hit music show Shindig. After this, he became a musical director, and accompanied artists such as The Beach Boys, Paul Revere, The Raiders, Vic Damone, Steve and Eydie, Eddie Rabbitt and Sylvie Vartan around the world.

He has arranged/produced 25 Gold and Platinum Records and 70 Chart Records including such #1 hits as Indian Reservation by Paul Revere & the Raiders, Da Doo Ron Ron by Shaun Cassidy, Can You Read My Mind by Maureen McGovern, Somewhere in Time by Roger Williams, and (I've Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. He won a Grammy Award for his arrangement in Time of My Life.

D'Andrea is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers , from which he has garnered three awards. In his spare time, D'Andrea plays the saxophone for the D'Anbino Family Band.
