Andy Pankakes is a maverick in his field. His infectious energy and melodies will have you on your feet singing along and leave you squirming on the floor in laughter and tears. Seemlessly blending an eclectic mix of genre from Soul/Funk/Hip-Hop/R+B to Folk/Americana to good ol' Rock n' Roll, Mr. Pankakes has created his own sound which he dubs "Breakfast Music." It's music you want to wake up to, then eat for lunch and dinner. Carefully crafted guitar lines dance between syrupy keyboard harmonies, funky bass thump and smooth buttery drum grooves.
"He's like a mix between Frank Zappa and Randy Newman" -Mikey Hulter
