For over 10 years, Andy Lalasis was the bassist who accompanied all the visiting headliners at the legendary Elaine’s lounge, within Atlantic City’s fondly-remembered Steve Wynn's Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. Those headliners included everyone from Ann Hampton Calloway, Keely Smith, Buddy Greco, Johnnie Ray, Billy Eckstine and Billy Daniels. Stars booked at Elaine's often stayed in town another week just to record with Lalasis and the legendary house trio. And a frequent visitor to Elaine's on his off nights? The one and only Francis Albert Sinatra!
Andy spent the following years at Resorts Casino as a member of Merv Griffin's Coconut Ballroom Orchestra doing Merv's NY's Eve TV shows and playing for the biggest stars who appeared there.
He also toured the world with Jazz guitar guru Pat Martino and has backed up virtually every "Star Act" who ever performed in Atlantic City at one time or another (a virtual who's who list).
In 2012 he released his first solo CD of original compositions titled "Fret Not". Andy's unique sound on either Upright or Electric Bass has been highly sought after internationally for years.
