Annie and the Hedonists’ show “Interpreting Songs of Female Blues Artists of the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s” was brilliant!  The music was lively, happy and just thrilling as expressed by young and old alike. Each song was arranged with such care – featuring Annie’s ever soulful and heartfelt vocals mixed with just the right amount of harmony and exciting accompaniment.  Thrilling – may be a better word to describe the instrumental solos!  The show ended with a standing ovation. A slide show of the great female blues artists behind the band with just the right bit of history was an added bonus. If you have not yet seen them live…you must make it a point!  Seek them out or hire them as we did – wonderful performers and entertainers!
