Smoking-hot band plays Unity Hall

Posted

BARNEVELD — Annie and the Hedonists, a five-piece group from New York’s capitol district, will perform their vintage blues and swing at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12 at Unity Hall, 101 Vanderkemp Ave.

Lead vocalist Annie Rosen grew up on the south side of Milwaukee, coming of age in the 1960s and ‘70s. She heard traditional blues guitar playing and singing, and formed a trio that performed jug band, vaudevillian blues and old-timey music.

Today, Rosen is recognized as a premier interpreter of the great female blues and jazz artists of the 1920s through ‘40s including Bessie Smith, Sippie Wallace, Billie Holiday, Rosetta Tharpe and Ella Fitzgerald.

She is backed by bandmates Peter Davis on guitar, banjo, clarinet, piano and vocals; Jonny Rosen on guitar and vocals; and Don Young on bass, guitar and vocals. Drummer Jerry Marotta is the newest member of the group. He has played with Orleans, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Paul McCartney and Sarah McLachlan.

Tickets are $15 in advance and are available at www.unityhall.com via Eventbrite and locally at the Adirondack Cheese Company on Route 12 in Barneveld.

If available, tickets on the night of the performance will be $15 for Unity Hall members and $20 for non-members. The box office will open at 7:15 p.m. Nov. 12 at Unity Hall.

For the safety and comfort of the musicians, audience members and volunteers, proof of COVID vaccination is required to attend so face masks can be optional.
