Anthony Mazzella and the Old Souls Appear at OTCA

Following his five previous sellouts at OTCA Anthony returns to dazzle concertgoers with his deft defying abilities on acoustic and electric guitars.

Anthony Mazzella and the Old Souls is a new band of multi-instrumentalists. Anthony Mazzella plays guitar, keyboards, drums & percussion, Sierra plays saxophone, flute, guitar, percussion and vocals, and Kevin McQuaid plays drums, percussion and cello. Each member of the band brings a ton of talent to the group, which creates a sonic tapestry of virtuosity as they switch instruments from song to song.

Originality in music and concept are the key elements of this new Old Souls band. Very few bands today change instruments throughout the program, and all members of this group are life long musicians. Their expertise and sensitivity bring excitement to every song. The band’s repertoire is based on Anthony Mazzella’s original music, however each member of the group has the creative freedom to improvise. The result is a fresh take on music that Anthony has presented during his solo concerts.

Mazzella is one of the most virtuosic and passionate guitar players in the world today. His performance career began in New York at Manhattan’s Café Wah, Birdland, CBGB’s and the famous Blue Note, and he has spent years touring the U.S. and world stages as a soloist and as the concert guitarist for world music master Omar Faruk Tekbilek. Among notable appearances, Anthony performed at The Vatican in Rome, Italy where he lived for several years.

Anthony’s original guitar music is composed with a fusion of world influences consisting of acoustic and electric finger-style, classical, flamenco, jazz, funk, R&B, Celtic, ambient, rock, medieval & near-eastern styles. He has opened for headlining artists, James Brown, Tower of Power, The Commodores, and Spyro Gyra. He has recorded six award winning albums, including four solo efforts: Electric Fingerstyle

Guitar, Unity, Heavenly Guitar and Ritual. His collaboration with Chris Spheeris, BRIO, won “best acoustic instrumental album of 2001” by NAV, and the self titled “Electric Harp Guitar Group” CD with William Eaton and Fitzhugh Jenkins was selected as one of the top 25 albums of 2007 by Echoes syndicated radio program.

Anthony is considered to be among the top guitarists performing in the world today. Come enjoy an evening of timeless classics and original music, from an artist who has innovated new ways to approach and play the guitar.
