Anne Marie & Demian are a Northern California duo featuring Anne Marie Bannister on lead vocals and Demian Bannister on acoustic guitar and harmonies. They have spent the better part of the last decade performing at clubs, private parties, weddings, and other events all over the Bay Area, often performing under the name "Calm & Chaos". They play a wide range of songs covering multiple genres, as well as original music. Whether you want classic rock such as The Beatles, Tom Petty, Tesla, or Guns & Roses, country artists like Rascal Flats and Gretchen Wilson, alternative music from Foo Fighters, Gin Blossoms, Christina Perry and The Cure, or today's hits from Bieber to Niall Horan, they can easily modify their set list to fit your event. They can also typically learn songs not already in the repertoire to really customize your event.

Anne Marie's voice draws comparisons to Chrissie Hynde and Karen Carpenter, and Demian has spent many years touring the states, receiving airplay on San Francisco Bay Area radio stations Live 105 and Alice Radio as the guitarist in several popular bands.
Calm & Chaos' debut original 12 song CD "Bad Decisions Make For Great Stories" was mastered by Marc DeSisto, reknowned for his work with U2, Pink Floyd, Sheryl Crow, Vertical Horizon, and many others. In 2017 they released an album of cover songs as a tribute to artists who passed away in 2016 titled "2016 Gone Not Forgotten", featuring acoustic interpretations of legends such as Prince, Glenn Frey, David Bowie, and George Michael.
Their music can be purchased and streamed on iTunes, Spotify, and Napster, as well on their website!
