Annie Mack Band

October 13 @ 9:00 pm - October 14 @ 12:00 am

| $10

“Annie Mack is a real find. Her songs are testimony to the power of music and how it can change lives.”
-Colorado Blues Society

“In a blues world overrun with bad-mama posturing on one hand and hoochie-mama silliness on the other, it’s refreshing to hear a lyricist with deeper ideas on her mind.”
– David Whiteis/ Living Blues Magazine

“I am a student of my environment,” Annie Mack’s reply to the question of songwriting inspiration is blunt and honest, exactly like the woman herself. “I am a student of my immediate surroundings, my work surroundings, my Church surroundings. When I write a song, I ask myself, ‘Do I feel something? Is my idea powerful enough for me to cry or laugh, or force me to think?’”

Annie is branded as a blues singer, but she is so far out of the realm of standard blues that she not only defies the category but has created a whole, new identity for herself and her music. Her first record, Baptized in the Blues, rings with roots tinged gospel tunes and retro Motown soul, then shuffles easily to a classic country beat complete with the lonesome drone of a pedal steel. Annie’s voice is unique, bold and charismatic; never sharp or shrill. She is a natural born singer, true to her own style and dedicated to the ideals that music is a prime communicator and healer.
