The Annies play all acoustic music with a bluegrass flavor, spiced up with a twist of fun and humor.
Since 2003, we have performed at bluegrass festivals in Iowa, Missouri, Illinois and Kansas.
Locally, the band has played many festivals including BBQ and Bluegrass in Silver Dollar City, Free State in Lawrence, Prater Family Festivals and for several municipal organizations including the City of Paola, Platte City and the City of Leavenworth, plus private parties, birthdays, weddings and even funerals!
The KBA Treblemakers began as the dream of the Kansas Bluegrass Association board of directors. Their vision was to support youth in Bluegrass by something more than just lessons for individual kids. After all, the FUN part of playing Bluegrass music is meeting others and jamming. So in 2010, board members began scouting young folks at jam sessions that they went to. Through their hard work, the original Treblemakers band came to be.
The band has been performing since early 2011, and have been featured at such notable events as Silver Dollar City's Bluegrass & Bar-B-Que, The Walnut Valley Festival's Acoustic Kids stage as well as the legendary "Stage 5", Wichita's Riverfest, Colby KS Pickin' on the Plains, Bartlett Arboretum's Treehouse Concert Series, and Rhonda & Darrin Vincent's family festival, Sally Mountain Park. In May 2015, the group was honored to take second place in the National Youth In Bluegrass contest at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. The dreams of the group came true in October 2015 when they were chosen as featured performers on the IBMA's Youth Stage at the Wide Open Bluegrass Festival in Raleigh, NC.
There have been several "generations" of the band, but all the graduates of the Treblemakers are still making music. The current line-up consists of two sets of siblings, which makes the coordination of rehearsals and family schedules a LITTLE easier.
