Anna & the Consequences welcomes you!

The sound of the human voice, old wood instruments and strings, the drawn bow… music as it was for hundreds of years.  It’s a fresh sound for an idea so old.  Strip away electricity and hear the real sound of the human voice, person to person, as it was meant to be.  As society has gotten louder and busier we’ve forgotten the sound of the voice in its purest form.  Melody against chord in stark relief.  Melodies that move, passion, fun… somehow they seem more honest without all the racket.

Silence is a fantastic backdrop for music but surely not the only one.  Picture a New York cabaret in 1947.  Full menu, big wooden bar.  Fabulous dresses, smart suits and polished shoes. People talking, laughing, dancing… or not.  Go ahead and have a conversation with your friends or your date.  Let the sound wash over you while you enjoy each other.  Pay attention for a minute until you think of something else to say.  Maybe get up and move together on the dance floor.

Or come closer and listen to the voices, the sound of wood.

We are here for you.

“We had never had entertainment at our Annual Convention.  It was risky to try something new but we really wanted to liven things up a bit.  The big concern was who could we get to provide entertainment that would appeal to our broad audience?  We picked Anna & The Consequences because we knew they were a nice blend of jazz and torch singing blues.  It turned out that they had the perfect vibe and volume to be background for those who wanted to talk and entertainment for those who wanted to listen.  A few people even got up and danced!   Well, they were a big hit.  I’ve already gotten a number of requests to bring them back next year.  Thanks Anna & The Consequences for making our experiment such a big success.”
– Michael O. Ranney, Executive Director, Ohio Psychological Association

“Anna & the Consequences really set the right mood for our cocktail party fundraiser at Brother’s Drake Meadery and Bar on June 12, 2013, with their fun, sultry sets appealing to our wide audience.  Everyone in the band is extremely talented and easy to work with – these musicians could fit almost any venue – from intimate cocktail party to dance hall with thousands!”
– Bethany Anderson, Public Information Director, Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging

“AWESOME. Everybody loved having you and the guys with us at the CMC Spring Membership Reception on May 31 and again August 29 featuring A Quarter Century of Mayoral Memories with Dana “Buck” Rinehart, Greg Lashutka, Michael B. Coleman and moderator Gail Hogan, Host of ‘Daytime Columbus’, NBC4.  Your music was lovely, appropriate, fun, upbeat and enjoyed. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again!”
-Jane Scott, Executive Director, Columbus Metropolitan Club

“Sexy, sultry, swingin’ and fun!”

Part of the supper party fun of watching Anna & The Consequences is the chemistry of the whole group and how the music ball is tossed from member to member. Anna and Dan are both extremely talented singers… it’s all very natural, organic, and enjoyable musical fun here!
-Jon Peterson, Host. Shakin’ It Radio on WCBE, 90.5FM, National Public Radio
