Andre Bohren was born in New Orleans, but grew up traveling across the country, following his father Spencer Bohren's tour schedule. When Andre was twelve, the family settled in Wyoming, and it was there he discovered a love of classical music. Four years later, under the tutelage of Dr. Janet Ahlquist, he would perform Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue" with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, and he represented the state in several regional piano competitions.

After moving back to New Orleans, he studied for two years with Dr. John Murphy at Loyola University. It was there that he founded the rock/funk band Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes in 2001, manning the drum and percussion chair. This band has been Andre's main focus for the past 18-plus years, playing such renowned venues as Red Rocks Amphitheater, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and New York's Knitting Factory.

In 2012 Andre began studying classical piano once more at the University of New Orleans with Dr. Robin Williams. Piano performance has taken him on solo tours across much of the United States. When not playing piano, Andre can be found working with many artists around New Orleans, including Johnny Sketch, Rory Danger & the Danger Dangers, Dave Jordan, and Mike Dillon.
