Ann Beretta is a punk band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1996 by Rob Huddleston, Leer Baker, Chris Rupp and Russ Jones (Leer and Chris later left), the band plays straightforward punk with small doses of rockabilly and country mixed into their sound.

The band spent several years on tour playing with bands including Hot Water Music, ALL, the Bouncing Souls, Less Than Jake and city-mates Avail. They have released albums on Fueled by Ramen and Lookout! Records. However, after their 2001 release New Union Old Glory, they left Lookout! to release their next album on with Canadian label Union Label Group. At this point the band is on hiatus,while Rob and Russ focus on their current project, The Foundation Band. Leer and Chris left the band in mid-1999 to start Sixer. Danny is currently the bassist/vocalist in Red Angel Dragnet.

After nearly three years, it was announced in March 2008 that the band would reunite April 26 for a hometown show with more gigs to be announced soon.
