David Andrichik, owner of the Chatterbox Jazz Club, began his professional life as an architect. He never thought he’d own a bar, let alone a jazz club. And certainly not one that’s become an icon of the Mass Ave neighborhood and instrumental in helping the area morph from rundown into a top-drawer cultural district. - Indianapolis Business Journal
Dusty decorations, checkered-flag pennants and colorful Christmas lights adorn this local jazz bar that oozes diveyness. Trumpet players feet from your ear, knocking back a Raspberry Kiss while bemoaning days gone by with a 20-year regular through a soft music mist. Mass Ave. isn’t a magic planet, but the Chatterbox might be. - Indianapolis Star

"Mick Jagger and guitarist Ron Wood also popped into the Chatterbox jazz club on Massachusetts Avenue.
"Mick Jagger was standing right next to me," saxophone player Frank Glover told The Star in 1992. "It was like being in 'The Twilight Zone.' He told me he loved the band." - Indianapolis Star
"The concierge called to make sure the Chatterbox had live music that night. She also said Jagger and Wood asked that other customers didn't take pictures or ask for autographs .... Andrichik relayed the request although there were doubts he was telling the truth. "Everyone didn't believe me until they saw two white limousines pull up," said Andrichik. - WISH-TV
"Another film that many locals will recognize is Daniel Arthur Jacobson’s Chatterbox, a documentary about the eclectic jazz bar of the same name, which has been a cornerstone on Mass Ave since the 1930s. The bar, helmed by current owner David Andrichik, has become one of the premier jazz hot spots in Indy, drawing local and national talent with its convivial atmosphere." - Indianapolis Monthly
