Sock’n’roll Legends, Andy & The Odd Socks, Come to the Tyne Theatre
@ Tyne Theatre & Opera HouseBook Now
10 April 2022
What a rollercoaster ride it’s been for Andy and the Odd Socks. It seems like only yesterday that the idea for the band came to Andy Day (CBeebies, Andy’s Wild Adventures, Andy’s Safari Adventures) in a dream, but in the short time since, they’ve played Glastonbury and gone way beyond Andy’s wildest dreams. Which are pretty wild dreams.
It took The Rolling Stones 50 years to get the chance to play Glastonbury. Half a century! But Andy and the Odd Socks were invited to play the UK’s biggest festival by Emily Eavis herself only months after forming and have now played over 50 festivals. They’ve now scored their own TV series and have just finished a new album which is set to see them soar to even greater heights.
Call it serendipity, call it fate, call it what you will. Like a river flows surely to the sea, some things are meant to be. Andy and the Odd Socks are not about cliched rock’n’roll, this is true sock’n’roll – fantastic catchy songs and a true celebration of individuality. Like The Monkees or The Simpsons, the Odd Socks appeal to kids and adults alike.
Andy may be one of the most recognisable faces of kids TV, with hugely popular CBeebies making him a household name, but music has always been Andy Day’s first passion. He grew up on classic artists like Ray Charles, Queen and Elton John, before embracing rock gods like Dave Grohl. One day, Andy had a vivid dream about starting a band that would take over the world. After years tackling dinosaurs and on safari, Andy was ready to take on the music world. Joined by bassist Blu, drummer Moxy, guitarist Rio, and keys player Mac, together, these madcap musicians make up the Odd Socks.
They’ve got singalong songs that kids adore, with a dash of Mighty Boosh or Flight of the Conchords oddball humour that parents love. “The great thing about rock’n’roll is that someone like me can be a star” said Elton John. Andy and the band are proof that the great thing about life is that Odd Socks can make the greatest stars.
The Odd Socks believe in finding what makes you unique and celebrating it. “Be yourself, everyone else is taken” said Oscar Wilde. We’re all Odd Socks, in our own way.
“We jam, we write, we rock… we’re the Odd Socks!”
