Entertainer Bio

Andy Klee was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. She was educated at Redhill School. Since the age of eleven, she has been vocally trained in Classical, Jazz and Contemporary music.

Her Studies were furthered by a three year National Diploma in Musical Theatre at Technikon Pretoria which included intensive Jazz, Classical and pop vocal training as well as stage craft, jazz, tap and ballet dancing.

Shortly after completing her studies, Andy joined the well known Afrikaans Pop group ‘Luv U So.’ ‘Luv U So’ toured all major destinations and art festivals in South Africa with Steve Hofmeyr as opening artists to his show, promoting his ‘Engele Om Ons’ cd.

After Andy’s exposure to local music, she left South African shores to explore the Far East and toured Hong Kong as a vocalist in a live band at the popular nightclub ‘The Green Spot.’ This marked the beginning of her exposure to the international music and band circuit.

It wasn’t long before word of mouth found Andy entertaining in the UAE at the five-star Hotel Intercontinental Al Ain. Andy returned to Dubai for a second time to form ‘Classique Duo,’ at the five-star Le Royal Meridian Hotel, singing Classical,Jazz, Blues and Contemporary standards.

Feeling a need for a drastic change in pace and personal challenge in performance, Andy joined well-known live Brit Rock band ’The Usual Suspects’ in the popular nightclub, Jimmy Dix, Movenpick Hotel, Dubai.

Affectionately known as “Lil’ Andy – the Pocket Rocket,” she mainlined with The Suspects, as lead vocalist performing live at the world recognized Dubai Rugby 7’s.

Andy has since returned to South Africa and has become well known as an entertainer in the Corporate market based in Johannesburg. Andy’s repertoire and performance styles are extensive. Andy is a competent performer in all styles of music from classical to Jazz, Rock n Rock and Dance.

Andy works as a solo artist as well as in a vocal and saxophone or violin duo called Vivo! and in an all girl corporate band called ‘Fever’ Andy also works in a live cover band with celebrity musicians Brent Harris and Denholm Harding from Just Jinger .

Andy is also an experienced MC and voice over artist, and hosts and sings for functions ranging from corporate launches and Awards evenings, through to cocktail events and golf days for companies including Momentum in Mauritius and Mozambique,  Altech/Altron, Investec, Sasol, Discovery, Toyota, Audi, Vodacom, Bidvest, to name a few.

The Red Carpet Dress

First impressions last – especially when your guests are welcomed to their event on a red carpet …with a difference!

Make your event a memorable one and have the beautiful songstress, Andy Klee perform angelic, background music welcoming your guests on her Red Carpet dress.

The carpet and dress are one piece of crushed deep red velvet that may be draped down stairs, around corners, into main venue or foyer /guest entrance areas that have Andy Klee singing as the centre piece upon a small stage, lit and raised on a platform.

The carpet dress has a non-slip base, and may be draped along carpet, tile or grass with a train of carpet that expands up to 20metres in length.

We may also customize the dress and have it made in any colour to match client company theme or logo.

Performances may last up to 80 minutes, as guests mingle and network in central areas, where Andy in her Red Dress make the perfect centre piece.

The Singing Lira

A visual spectacular of light and inspiration is this remarkable vocalist in her suspended Lira.

Seated in her sparkling hoop suspended in mid air, Andy brings a new dynamic of corporate entertainment to life.

Able to perform all genres of music, with a varied choice of costumes and accessories this new dynamic act can also be used to enhance the décor concept and theme of any event.

From attachable feathered wings, to coloured lights and sparkling Swarovski crystals. Imagine Burlesque in real life, complete with choreographed dance routines, or a Set of Enchanted tunes in an elegant cocktail dress.

Be it a single song to mark an important point of the evening, or a 40-minute guest entrance set, Andy sings, seated in her hoop above the audience creating an atmosphere of magic and ambiance.

And if that isn’t enough, a descending hoop allows Andy to walk among your guests, before, after or during this stirring performance.

Captivate your guests with the perfect collaboration of light, space, music and visual spectacular.

Tech Requirements for LIRA:

The quote includes: the Lira, its rigging/Winch or Tripod hire safety certificate, Andys costume (client’s choice in White/Red/Orange/Blue/Black) and Lira accessories, (angel wings or bows on hoop) as well as Andy’s own Swarovski studded Microphone.
PA (Sound Hire & Set up) is excluded from this quote.
Venue ceiling height and clearance should be at least 6 meters from floor to ceiling. A sight inspection may be necessary to decipher where rigging will happen and additional trussing may need to be built in the venue should it be required. (Obviously the higher the ceiling the more ‘Wow factor’ the visual effect is.)
Should ceiling trussing in the venue be problematic, then we may suggest a Tripod erection, which is a triangular structure in which Andy in her Lira may hang. Requirement for Tripod structure is flat ground space of at least 16 Meters (for building purposes) and a floor to ceiling height of at least 8 Meters – once Tripod is erected. Legs of Tripod are equidistant at 7meters each.
Andy’s Singing Lira Act is performed above the audience. Should client wish, Andy may also come down and roam/interact amongst the crowd to return to her hoop and rise above the audience again.
Should the venue be outside of Jhb, please be aware that quote fee may vary to accommodate the transport of the Winch and if the venue requires additional ceiling trussing.
