including Bye Bye Birdie, The Sound Of Music, Annie Get Your Gun,
and Brigadoon. Now a resident of Syracuse, we are fortunate to
have Anna in the Billionaires to showcase her lovely voice. In
a typical Billionaires performance, Anna will treat you to the
music and vocal stylizations of Whitney Houston, Cheryl Lynn,
Faith Hill, Etta James, and many others.

Daryl Hunt is an outstanding drummer.
Originally from Utica and now residing in Oswego, Daryl fits in
perfectly with the Billionaires because of his simple, effective
philosophy about playing music. (quote) "Just groove it. 95% of
the countless people I've played with appreciate it." One of Daryl's
favorite drummers, Herrman Matthews of Tower Of Power has the
same style and approach.
