ANDRA'S BIO
This is what I know about Andra so far.....she was born on August 27, 1943 and hails from Danville, Virginia.
She started out singing at an young age, and with her sisters.
Andra joined the Lawrence Welk Musical Family in late 1967, as a possible succesor to the soon-to-be departing Lennon Sisters. During her tenure on the show, which lated until 1969....she was a soloist, sang with Dick Dale as a duo, did several group choral numbers and was part of the many incarnations of the Curt Ramsey Quintet.
While on the show, she was married to Roy Kahn, an advertising excecutive from New York,
but I believe that marriage had since ended in divorce.
I have found out from fellow Welk fans that Andra, since leaving the show, is alive and well, remarried to musician Larry Muhoberac, lives in Australia, has continued singing, as a session singer and is a terrific songwriter.
If you have any memories, pictures or fun facts you like to share about Andra, send them to me at my
