Welcome To Our New Website!

Hi Everyone!

We're very excited to welcome you to our new website. As many of you know, New Oak has been through a number of iterations over the past few years. With its roots in beloved Regensburg group The Whisky Bandits, briefly under the moniker Dirty Trees, and since 2016 as An Banna, New Oak represents our new style and direction. We've thought long and hard over many a beer about the music we are bringing to you, and we're proud to say that New Oak offers completely new and (we think) exciting musical experience.

Although a love for Irish music originally brought us all together, we've slowly transitioned away from it (well, not all of us: check out our sister band, Breaking Strings, if that's what you're looking for - you won't be disappointed). Our mission is now to bring you original, hand-crafted, malty, hoppy... oops, we're thinking about beer again. Songs. Original American music from the heart.

We've boiled our repertoire down to focus on the material we ourselves have written, but we've chosen to feature music written by friends of ours as well. To top off the mix, we throw in the occasional traditional American tune or song, reworked in our own style.

We truly hope you enjoy what you hear and look forward to seeing us at some, any, or all of our upcoming shows. Check out the links in the navigation bar above to hear what we sound like, see when we're playing, drool over pictures of our cute faces, or get in touch with us.

With love,

your New Oak
