Harry Andronis
February 4, 1953 – December 27, 2010

Harry Andronis is perhaps best remembered as the long time front-of-house sound mixer for Frank Zappa.  He joined up with Zappa in 1988, coming on board for the Broadway The Hard Way Tour.  Prior to his job with Zappa, Andronis worked with the likes of Shadowfax, Chris DeBurgh, Supertramp, and Jean-Luc Ponty. He also created jingles for such companies as Schlitz, United Airlines, and McDonalds, and did sound effects for such television shows as L.A. Law and Doogie Howser.  In his later years with Zappa, Andronis helped him remix tapes from many of his old shows.   On December 27, 2010, Harry Andronis passed away following a long struggle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  He was 54.

Thanks to Roger Palmeri for the assist.
