Over a call, Annie told Agarwal about the Annie Minogue band (AMB), “The band’s driving and energizing sound, combines a gutsy rock attitude, great pop sensibility with a hint of the blues, reminiscent of some of rock’s greatest female icons”.

AMB lineup consists of Nick Saya (Drums), Nunzio Signore (Guitar & Vocals), Brian Karp (Bass), Kendall Scott (Keyboards) and Annie Minogue (Vocals). AMB has toured both nationally and regionally, and shared the stage with iconic artists like: Blues Traveler, The Smithereens, David Lee Roth, Chris Whitley, Dave Navarro, Black Eyed Peas, Soul Asylum, Los Lobos, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Eric Gales and numerous others.

AMB’s craft for songwriting, along with Annie’s powerfully expressive voice and the band’s dynamic rock sensibilities, have given the group firm roots within the music world, with the band’s music featured on film, TV, and radio such as: Lifetime Television, Sony Television, MSNBC, MTV, CBS, CW, WB, “Dawson’s Creek”, “Strong Medicine”, regional radio stations and the independent feature film “Out of the Black.”

Annie is also the co-creator and executive producer of two popular concert series. “Fair Play”, a concert series sponsored by City Winery that benefits the Bronx Immigration Partnership. Over the course of two shows, AMB has performed alongside artists like: Chris Difford from Squeeze, Robben Ford, David Poe, Tracy Bonham, Richard Barone, and Trixie Whitley.

On being asked, if AMB would like to perform in India? Annie gushed, “I would love to do that. Indians have a very deep-rooted connect with music and so do I, so my instinct says, it will be an immediate connect with Indians”. Annie thanked #BNHAF Awards and Festival for the coveted #BNHAF Global Icon Award and said she would definitely love to attend one of the gala editions of #BNHAF Awards and Festival.
