Annie Sampson & her band"Annie's all over the place, rocking and scolding, testifying and crying, torching and lusting, and celebrating love, life and ever increasing strength." -Ben Fong-Torres

We dare you to stay in your seat when electrifying songstress Annie Sampson and her smokin' band take the stage.

Annie Sampson's unique approach to song- whether a blues, a rock tune, a country & western ballad, or a modern folk classic, was honed during a youth spent singing in Bay Area church and school choirs. The pipes that won a church talent show at five took her on a career around the world, playing a lead in the American Conservatory Theater's production of Hair, fronting popular rock group Stoneground, and recording with everyone from Elvin Bishop to Sammy Hagar, and Otis Clay to Elvis Costello.

Tonight, Annie applies the salt savor of her rich voice and warm presence to a mix of terrific tunes including Lonely Avenue, Meet Me in the Bottom, Fever, Take Me To the River, and original songs from her latest CD Under the Moon. Annie's crack band, veteran musicians who've backed such legends as Etta James, John Lee Hooker, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, includes Terry Baker-drums, Tom Fuglestad-trumpet, Steve Hazlewood-bass guitar, Tim Kaihatsu-guitar, and John Whitney. Annie and her band have appeared at numerous Bay Area venues, the Novato Art and Domaine Chandon Music Festivals.
