IF you missed seeing Missing Andy on hit Sky 1 talent contest Must Be The Music, then you’re in luck next weekend.
The five-piece Essex indie rock band, who had a top 40 smash with The Way We’re Made (Made In England), will be appearing at The Horn in St Albans on Saturday night.
Unlike some of the manufactured acts on Simon Cowell’s The X Factor on ITV, Must Be The Music featured bands that could actually play instruments and write their own tunes.
The judging panel consisted of popular jazz artist Jamie Cullen, Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri and Bonkers rapper Dizzee Rascal.
Fronted by singer Andy Greaves and also featuring Jon Sharpe on synths, Rob ‘Master General’ Jones on bass, guitarist Steve Rolls and drummer Elliot Richardson, Missing Andy reached the last six of the competition.
The Braintree band then appeared in the live final of the show at Wembley Arena in London, eventually finishing behind Scottish winner Emma Gillespie, better known by her stage name Emma’s Imagination.
Tickets to see the Essex lads at The Horn in Victoria Street cost £5 in advance and £6 on the night.
Support comes from The Tearaways, Getaway and Wonderlust.
A number of Juicebox resident DJs will also be playing records until late.
