Fronted and founded by fight director, songwriter, and guitarist Annie Enneking, Annie and the Bang Bang are a Minneapolis rock band. Known for their potent and spirited live shows, they are multi-disciplined artists, many of whom met while working in the theater. The band has many moods, mostly of the rock variety. They genre hop from dreamy folk-pop to swampy psychedelic grooves to a grunge-meets-late-sixties vibe, crafting musical gems that value energy, animal intelligence, poetry, and mischief. Their collective musical DNA includes REM, Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Joni Mitchell, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, and Big Star. The band is like a small roving gang of friends, who often develop new material while on writing retreats, tours, and band slumber parties. Adventure is a value of theirs, and they treat every gig as one.
