The Annunciators are a roots band based in New Orleans. Like most New Orleans bands, their sound is at once instantly recognizable and hard to pin down, but their best guess is that they sound “like the Stones if they were from Mississippi…and less talented.” That sound begins with Mississippi native Bob Worth’s songs, which are often topical, usually more than a little bit tongue-in-cheek, and always deeply evocative of New Orleans, the South, and contemporary America.
The Annunciator's blues-inflected country rock starts from the bottom up, with veteran New Orleans sideman Red DeVecca bringing a lifetime of experience in every American roots genre on bass, and Michael Kendrick bringing his Mississippi roots and joy for all things musical on drums. A rotating cast of up and coming New Orleans musicians round out the group on any given night, and often features Daniel Schroeder’s inimitable blend of soul and technicality on guitar, or Ted Hefko’s unique jazz-via-Americana style on saxophone.
The Annunciators recently released their first single, which they would have called “Wasted Time b/w Rebuildin’ Blues” if singles were still a thing.
They’re currently working on an EP, which they plan to release in October 2017.
