This breezy, fun-loving band led by Annie and Jonny Rosen has taken ownership of Thanksgiving weekend at Lena’s. They’re the perfect ensemble to entertain all your out of town visitors, even those who think they only like pop, or classical, or their smartphone.
Annie & the Hedonists transport us back to an age when heartache, boozing, and all sorts of romantic mayhem amounted to one big stylish adventure. And, for some reason we won’t examine too closely, that seems to hit the sweet spot of pretty much everyone!
From the gospel-rock of Sister Rosetta Tharpe to the high-lonesome bluegrass of Claire Lynch and the irresistible swing of Fats Waller, the torchy, honey voice of Annie Rosen takes center stage, with super-tight, expert backing provided by husband Jonny Rosen on guitar, Peter Davis on clarinet, tenor guitar, piano, and vocals, Don Young on bass and vocals and Jerry Marotta on percussion/drums
