What's new - November 17
Next meeting -- December 10, 2014
7:00PM – Annie & The Hedonists Concert
The Genesee Valley Chapter has delighted in the joyful music of Annie & the Hedonists each February for a number of years as part of our annual Loj Trip’s weekend of skiing and snowshoeing in the High Peaks. In December of 2010 and again in 2012, we were able to coax them into traveling to Rochester for our Holiday Program, and now they’re back for another thrilling performance! Annie & the Hedonists features lead vocalist, Annie Rosen; guitarist, Jonny Rosen; multi-instrumentalist, Peter Davis; and bassist, Don Young.
Annie’s emotive vocals are accompanied by tight-knit harmonies and a variety of lead instruments, including acoustic and tenor guitar, and clarinet. Acoustic Blues, Vintage Jazz & Swing, and Folk Roots Americana are finely crafted by Annie’s sassy renditions of some of the timeless, nostalgic songs of the American jazz tradition.
The band performs primarily in the Northeast. Members of the group have also been featured in a number of other bands, including Reggie’s Red Hot Feet Warmers, the Doc Scanlon Trio, Lindy Hop Heaven, and Swingology. Peter Davis is a regular performer on “Dancing on the Air,” hosted by Jay Unger and Molly Mason on Northeast Public Radio (WAMC).
The band’s most recent recording of a CD titled, “Women Be Wise,” includes an array of songs from the 1920s and 30s from such artists as Sippie Wallace, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Louis Armstrong. Other songs include two from Bob Dylan, plus country blues, gospel and western swing.
You may visit their web site at AnnieAndTheHedonists.com/photos-videos to watch videos of their fabulous music and warm up your feet.
Please join us on Wednesday, December 10, at 7:00pm for a toe-tapping and foot-stomping evening of fun and exciting music!
