Anthony Cirillo, Guitarist – Vocalist
Anthony Cirillo fell into a mission for elders when he started performing in senior communities. And he still sings for seniors. He also does performances for all ages. With a repertoire of some 1,000 songs, Anthony can do a Mitch Miller sign-along, a Woodstock party, or move right into today with Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Kenny Chesney and any number of artists.
It all started when he was 10 and his father decided that he should take guitar lessons. He had the idea they would go out and perform together. Well he hated the lessons of course and put the guitar aside. A year later his dad died and that guitar was beckoning. The passion has not subsided. He went from the bass player in the band to a full-fledged entertainer; at his peak performing nearly 200 shows a year for upwards of 20,000 people.
He has been entertaining audiences since 1971. He has entertained in casinos and resorts, has one several Billboard songwriting awards, recorded in Nashville and has been featured in BMI writer showcases.
He regularly entertains in local venues, clubs and cafes and is available for private functions as well.
He can also MC your events. As a frequent contributor to Charlotte Today he will be a familiar face to many.
You can find him on Amazon, CD Baby and iTunes. Anthony has 13 pre-recorded programs ready for you with more coming and you can schedule live stream events as well.
