Ana Popovic w/ Special Guest Dana FuchsSaturday, June 8, 2013
Ana’s career has been meteoric, and shows no signs of slowing down! The 4x Blues Music Awards nominee blends smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and tight blues groove with soulful feminine vocals. Her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world.
Ana Popovic was born in the war torn town of Belgrade, formerly Yugoslavia. Ana grew up in a warm and loving family where music was very important. Her father would, throughout her youth, always invite friends over for nightly jam sessions where Ana listened and analyzed the deep artistic roots of her music. In this atmosphere, she quickly picked up her father’s impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and went to work at a young age of 15. Since then, Ana Popovic has developed into a phenomenal guitarist/vocalist who currently resides in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Today Ana and her phenomenal 4-piece band are tirelessly touring, playing major blues / jazz and rock festivals around the world!
Dana Fuchs is a phenomenon, a singer whose mesmerizing voice and presence has led critics to compare her to rock legends from Janis to Jagger. Dana’s portrayal of “Sadie” in Sony Pictures’ highly acclaimed Beatles' musical film Across the Universe has exposed her considerable talents to a wide, international audience. Raised in a small town in the swamps of Florida surrounded by soul, funk, rock and country, she was singing every Sunday in a small black baptist choir at age 12. At 19 she headed north to New York to "sing the blues" alone and broke, ending up down and out on NYC's Lower East Side where she worked her way up through New York's gritty club scene, combining her deep southern music roots with her sometimes dark but always soulful stories of lost, ambivalent, and misplaced love. Her sold out club NYC shows led to Dana being cast as Janis Joplin in the hit off-broadway musical show 'Love Janis.' Her run there led her to renowned director Julie Taymor who cast her in Across the Universe.
Dana will performing classics from her last 3 albums as well as brand new songs from her Upcoming CD "Bliss Avenue" due out July 9th on Ruf Records.

"To look at, Fuchs is willowy flower-fairey with a head of Titian curls, like a wayward Joss Stone. Her voice, though is juke-joint dirty and illicit, evoking Joplin, Jagger, and a fag butt bobbing in a glass of bourbon"

“Imagine a sultry, more emotive Janis Joplin backed by a higher-energy version of the late-’60s Rolling Stones…Rock’n'roll doesn’t get any better.”
