Annie Becker will kick off a mini tour at Courtenay’s own Zocalo Café this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with an opening set from friends the Jilli Martini Trio.

With her debut album All About the Beez Neez in hand and powered by an RC-50 Looper and a mountain of creativity, Becker has been busking for the better part of four years through New York, Thailand, Montreal, Ontario, and British Columbia.

Cloaking her audiences in a Gyp-sea of horns, guitars, pianos, basses, ukuleles, and drums laced with sultry soundscapes and groovy beat-boxing styles, Annie bring her music to stages and streets alike.

This past year alone she has performed at music festivals big and small including Sunshine Music Festival, Big Time Out, Rhythm on the Rock and Cortes Island Music Fest.

What will you get if you come to see one of the Annie Becker Duo shows? An intimate show.

Up close and personal with her voice, lyrics, and rhythmic changes through different levels of percussive sound. Radio Canada International has described Becker as having “a very powerful voice and a very theatrical delivery in the way she sings. When she sings, you listen.”

Enjoy some tapas or dinner with the Zocalo show. Call 250-331-0933 or e-mail to reserve your space.

As part of this mini-tour, and with drummer Keelan Gamble, Annie will also play at the Duncan Garage on Feb. 4, opening for Bocepheus King. To find out more, check
