Camp Andyland is the camp every kid will want to go to. Filled with strikingly crafted pop songs for kids, with stick-in-your-head lyrics and catchy melodies – plus a memorable cast of characters that bring kids into Andy Z’s world. An infectious collection of songs compiled from the popular Andyland series – Welcome to Andyland, Return to Andyland and Summer in Andyland.
“It is instinctual for me to want to tell a story to kids as well as incorporate character puppets into my performances,” says Andy. “This natural inclination eventually led me to the creation of an imaginary world that would be the backdrop for telling these stories, meeting the characters (a.k.a. residents), and taking kids on a destination-based musical adventure, a tour if you will. So Andyland was born, and we’ve been having a great time visiting ever since!"
Andy Z is a multiple award-winning children's performer, singer/songwriter and educator who combines music, movement, storytelling and character puppets to create an experience that keeps kids engaged and families entertained. Andy's performances have earned him rave reviews and high-profile appearances on the Pandora Video Series, Pottery Barn Kids Stylehouse website, and at Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Strings Music Festival.
In addition to performing live for hundreds of audiences every year, Andy has guest deejayed on the national radio shows Spare The Rock Spoil The Child and Hilltown Family Variety Show. Andy's music has been heard on NBC's Today Show and has received many accolades, including Parent’s Choice, NAPPA & (Disney Family’s) iParenting Media Award.
