Ladies and gentlemen… Bruce Anthony, “The Acoustic Guy” is back.
In the early 80's Bruce was regularly performing throughout Wisconsin and South Florida. He played the "Ground Round Circuit" and was going acoustic or " Unplugged" long before it became fashionable.
In the 90's life slowed down for Bruce and he traded in the life style of performer to that of being a daddy. His musical talents found him doing studio and session work for some electronic and hard rock acts that needed acoustic guitar tracks laid down for recordings. During this period, Bruce Anthony became known as "The Acoustic Guy".
In the mid 90's, Bruce found himself spending less time with music and as much time with his family as possible.
Recently, an old friend had asked Bruce to do an opening solo acoustic set for a show that his band was set to perform, having not played to an audience in quite some time, Bruce happily accepted. After that show, playing to audiences again just seemed like a natural thing to do.
Bringing out the old instruments, purchasing new equipment, bringing old songs back up to performance level, and learning new material has all been quite exciting for Bruce. Having been a musician all his life, it's only natural to want to play to people.
