I Want Andy

It’s about time. The Andy Ober Orchestra finally has a website! It’s the one and only place where you can download samples from the Lafayette area’s best comedy band.

You may remember them from back during last semester’s improv trip to Miami, OH. But even if you don’t, don’t let that stop you from taking a look at their site.

And just between you and me, things are in the works between the Fools and AOO. Dare I say, plans?

  1. The AOO song “Pi Pi Pi” is my favorite, by far. I mean, COME ON, IT’S PI, WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?!

  2. You should see them play it live, especially during the sing-along portion. It’s amazing how few people can even get as far as 3.14159265358979.

    I asked Andy, and he assures me that the actual value of pi (well, OK, an approximation thereof) is given in the lyrics; it’s not just a stream of random numbers after 3.14, even though few in the audience would probably ever know the difference. He originally had a cheat sheet with the digits on it when he’d perform the song, but after a while he’d sung it enough to have it all memorized.

    The moral is: to memorize digits of a transcendental number, parody a boy band.
