Ana Popovic

I first heard of Ana Popovic this past winter while listening to iTunes radio. I heard one song by Ana, wrote it down, and bought it. I checked out her website: and found out she was coming to Mpls in June. Turns out it was for the Famous Dave's BBQ and Blues Fest. Apparently she has played the bar in Calhoun Square before. In fact, she will be back there again on August 21st. She gives a pretty good show and is engaging with the audience. She is also attractive. And she can play the guitar! After 90 minutes I was pretty blown away how good she was. She was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. Her dad was a guitarist that was into American blues. Her idols are old blues legends and modern (but dead) artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix, both of which she played songs by in concert.
I video taped 2 songs plus the solo by the bass player (that's for you, Alex!). Not sure why the bass solo didn't upload as clear as the other two videos. It's crystal clear on my computer. I don't know everything about how Youtube operates yet. The 3 videos are below this post. Check them out!

  1. This bass video is fuzzy because, as a matter of fact and rule of the musical world and rock band by-laws, the bass player always gets the shaft. Sorry Alex, but don't worry because the drummer's deal generally sucks too.
