Andy & The Odd Socks
Part of The Big Feastival 2018 line up...
Andy Day, Star of Children’s TV, proudly presents his brand new rock and roll band for kids….ANDY AND THE ODD SOCKS!!!
Widely known for his antics tackling dinosaurs, baby animals and being on safari, much loved children’s TV presenter Andy Day has another string to his bow. This is Andy the rock star!
Andy has shown his musical credentials before via his hugely popular dinosaur raps, which have amassed a whopping 12 million views on YouTube and is undoubtedly one of the best loved children’s personalities in the UK. And Andy and the Odd Socks look set to become just as popular!
Andy, and the brilliant Odd Socks, are great friends who have lots of fun telling stories and playing live music for all the family to enjoy. Andy is a fantastic front man with Rio from Planet Rock on guitar, the mega Moxy on drums, cool Blu on bass and the very random Keith on keys (and hoover!)
Already proving hugely popular with Andy’s existing fan base of young children, older children and Mums and Dads are admitting to having their favourite songs too! Parents are particularly loving the subtle message the band send out to their kids, that it’s cool to be different….we are all unique and should be proud of who we are and kind and accepting of one another.
That’s what it means to be an Odd Sock. The band played their very first gig at Glastonbury 2017 by personal invitation from Emily Eavis and her young family. Not a bad start! They continued touring family festivals over the Summer including Camp Bestival, Carfest for Children In Need, Port Eliot and Shambala to an overwhelming audience response and are currently rehearsing for the many exciting appearances and festivals in the forthcoming year.
The album ‘Who Invited This Lot’ was officially released via Universal on November 24th 2017. The album is an eclectic mix of the catchiest songs created especially for kids. The children love them ……and secretly so do their parents! Boring car journeys are a thing of the past once you play this album en route!
A collection of contemporary songs that introduce characters and hilarious storylines. Where else will you find footballing dinosaurs, battle rapping robots, ninja pigs, the aliens…oh and of course a Groovy Hoover. These are real songs, rich in quality, covering a broad musical genre base and as infectious as you can get.
The album is wrapped around a song called ‘Unique’, which is all about celebrating individuality and being yourself. It was quickly adopted as the anti bullying anthem by the Anti Bullying Alliance Charity at schools during Anti Bullying Week in November 2017.
