A Southern native, Annie brings her considerable musical skills to Savannah, Hilton Head and the Low Country. She has worked as a professional musician in Chicago, Miami and, for the past 15 years, Savannah. She is formerly the owner of Annie’s Guitars & Drums and Annie Allman’s Downtown Music, both in Savannah, Ga. She lives on Wilmington Island, just east of Savannah. Her first instrument was the drum set, but now primarily performs as a guitarist. She still records as a drummer regularly, especially on her own recordings.
Annie utilizes a creative way to bring the full impact of a musical ensemble to the stage, while being the only one there. She has gone into the recording studio and, with others, has recorded the tracks to over 425 songs to date. The finished result on stage sounds like a full ensemble, but it is really Annie performing with the recorded tracks.
Her repertoire is exciting and varied. From Santana to Miles Davis to Count Basie to the Allman Brothers, she has plenty of musical content for every social situation. She performs regularly at banquets, private parties, supper clubs and restaurants, music clubs, galleries and art fairs, church functions and, well, you get the idea. Her professional presentation is always well-received. She has recently released her first CD of jazz and standards…with a hint of rock and blues for good measure!
Whether you need music for dancing, dining or listening, Annie’s goal is to always give the host a great performance at a fair price.
