One trip across the sea inspired founder Jason Marc Pierce to bring this music back to the states and gather others along the way to continue to enhance the sound of what is now known as Banna. Brought together to bring Celtic music to all good people, Banna is quickly becoming the favorite pub band in the Triad and beyond.

Banna (which means "the band" in Gaelic) counts among its members:

Jason Marc Pierce: vocals, guitar, pennywhistle, kilt Ken Ashford: percussion, good-natured sarcasm Cris Mudd: vocals, artistic-ness, occasional bucket player Jaye Pierce: vocals, guitar, talking Zachary Messick: mandolin, guitar, youth                   Vance D. Archer III: fiddle, bouzouki, dance intensifier                 Kenny Love: bassist, Guinness
