BAFTA nominated Children's TV presenter Andy Day is a huge presence in most young kids lives. He is regularly on screen tackling dinosaurs, baby animals and being on safari. Now the much-loved host has added another string to his bow - Andy the rock star! Andy will be performing live with his new band ‘Andy and The Odd Socks’ across the UK, this Spring & Summer.

Who is Andy Day?

Andy,36, grew up in Luton, Bedfordshire, and started his career back in his early 20s when he was a performer at London's Millennium Dome (now known as the O2) and always knew he wanted to be a kids' entertainer.

His musical credentials began via his hugely popular dinosaur raps, which amassed a whopping 12 million views on YouTube. As well as appealing to children, the dad-to-be has also recently been lauded as being a bit of a sex -symbol, with mums taking to popular website Mumsnet to discuss his appearance. One wrote “Did you see Andy’s Baby Animals today? Oh, my God, his shorts were so tight you could see his sizeable package.” While another said “Think I’m going to have to borrow a child and start watching kids TV again. The hosts are hot.”

Odd Sock Day

In 2017 Andy established a new national anti-bullying day for kids called ‘Odd Socks Day’ which saw thousands of school children up and down the country wearing odd socks to school to raise money for the Anti-Bullying Alliance and celebrate their individuality.

This year, Odd Socks day will take place on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week, Monday 12 November 2018.

So who is ‘Andy and The Odd Socks’? You have Rio on guitar, Blu on bass, Moxy hitting the drums and Random Keith on keys - and they are all bonkers! They love telling stories and singing about all sorts of things from Aliens and Dinosaurs to Rapping Robots and even a Groovy Hoover!.

The band made their festival debut at Glastonbury last summer and were personally booked by organiser Emily Eavis. Their fun live shows have gained them high profile fans from the likes of Fearne Cotton and her husband Jessie Wood - both seen rocking out with their kids at a recent London show.

You can catch Andy and The Odd Socks live at their headline gigs on April 13 at London's Bush Hall.

They will also be performing at festivals up and down the country this summer, including Camp Bestival, Dorset July 27 and Standon Calling, Hertfordshire July 29.
