Anna Banana Band

Anna Banana Band is the BEST new punky rock band for kids!

Our debut CD, "Anna Banana Band!", is a collection of original songs that cross many different genres including rock, reggae, pop, folk, punk and Latino music. Some songs call for the listener to sing along—or roar, as in the satirical-punk song “Dinosong”. Other songs tell stories (and reverse dynamics), such as “The Little Monster”, a song about a lost, sad monster. And, as the title suggests, “Hello/Hola” is performed in both English and Spanish, uniting the two. Take a listen to the album—there’s something here for everyone!

Bio: Anna Banana is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist living in Brooklyn, NY. She has toured and recorded with several NYC-based rock bands. Upon joining the world-renowned songwriter David Weinstone (as seen on Nickelodeon’s “Nick Jr.”) and his official live Music for Aardvarks touring band in 2006 as bassist and back-up vocalist, she knew that she had found her calling—-kids music! In addition to playing with the Aardvarks, Anna has written and composed a number of original songs and continues to play music for all ages to enjoy.

Some Reviews:

"Ms. Banana covers a slew of kiddie subjects on her debut disc, including dreamy dinosaurs and timid monsters." - Jay Ruttenburg/HOT TOPIC in TimeOutNYKids

"I promise you and your kids will enjoy this album from start to finish." - Michelle Assini for Macaroni Kid

"Anna and her band serve up 11 original songs, one traditional chant, and an excellent cover (“Twist and Shout”). Anna’s light, bouncy vocals are backed up by guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, bongos, congas, percussion, and dobro. Musical styles range from 60s-style rock to bluegrass, reggae, jazz, and Latin. The band chants “Five Punky Monkeys Jumpin’ on the Bed” with a lovely minor jazz instrumental backup. “The Little Monster” is more afraid of the human in the bed than vice versa. Other songs include “Dinosong,” “Many Shapes,” “S-U-B-W-A-Y,” “Unity,” “Robot Dance” with participatory movements, “Hello/Hola” which teaches some basic Spanish words, “My Shadow,” “Parade” with nice harmonies, “Punky Monkey Theme Song,” and “Baby Brother, Max.” A lively addition to children’s music collections.–Beverly Wrigglesworth, San Antonio Public Library, TX, for School Library Journal, Oct. 2011
