Anney and the Dinosaurs
is the brain child of Bob Gelley and Ken Doles, two men
who came of age in the rocking 70’s.
Mid-Life Crisis is a collection of songs both
reminiscent and reflective of the sounds from that
Featuring 12-string guitar jangle, haunting slide work,
swamp soaked guitar and 70's jams, this collection of
eclectic songs takes the listener through a variety of
classic sounding musical styles.
The Dinosaurs set out to give this project an analog
vibe and the instruments, tones, and general feel will
take the listener back to a time when music wasn’t as
over produced and polished.
While the songs may have a 70's vibe, the lyrics sung by
the band’s singer Anney Jeandrevin, take a look at many
of today’s relevant issues.

If possible, the Dinosaurs recommend playing the CD
through a good set of speakers with full bass and treble
at a volume that scares the neighbors.

Anney Jeandrevin began enjoying
music at a young age. As a little girl she fantasized about
becoming either a rock star or a princess; however, at the
age of five she picked up piano and hoped her fantasy might
become a reality. At age 9 Anney began voice lessons and in
the years that followed picked up other instruments. By then
it became obvious to Anney that becoming a musician was not
a choice as it was a destiny.
Even though life provided other options, her love of music
was always in the background. This passion for music has led
Anney to travel and sing both in the USA and abroad. The
formation of Anney and the Dinosaurs is another chapter in
her singing career.
Ken Doles grew up in the
eastern suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. He purchased his first
guitar at age ten, and in 7th grade met fellow Dinosaur Bob
- forming his first real Rock N Roll band. In the early
eighties Ken and Bob formed another band whose music
amplified the themes of the time. When that project
disbanded Ken spent the next 25 years in a
Christian Rock band.
In a weird twist of fate, Ken again hooked up with Bob years
later at a high school reunion. Bob who now builds guitars,
and Ken who had began building tube guitar amps, began a new
musical endeavor selling their instruments together.
This led to jam sessions between the two men which
ultimately resulted in their debut album aptly titled:
The boys who met in their early teens may now be dinosaurs,
but their music will take you back - back to a time when
life was simpler and responsibilities were minimal.
Like Ken, Bob Gelley
also grew up in a suburban neighborhood just east of
Cleveland, Ohio in the 1970’s. Bob got his first set of
Ludwig Standard drums in elementary school and focused on
percussion through Junior high. In high school Bob found
himself bored with drums, picked up his first guitar and
never looked back.
Bob would spend the next years of his life playing at
parties and jamming with other musicians while scoring many
Bob, who is now part owner of Tremcaster Guitars brings his
love of classic 60’s and 70’s records to the musical flavor
heard on Anney and the Dinosaur’s debut album.
