PERFORMANCE: George's performance is generally a mix of 60s/70s classics, reggae favorites, select current pop songs, and traditional Cuban and Puerto Rican songs which make for a unique and refreshing set.

BIOGRAPHY: A multi-instrumentalist, surfer, and borderline obsessive fisherman, George Anthony was born in Hialeah, FL, a predominantly Cuban suburb of Miami, FL to Cuban immigrant parents in 1984. They moved to Central Florida 12 years later where he attended high school and eventually graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2005. George studied classical and Latin piano during most of his youth, even after picking up his first guitar at the age of 11. His father, a drummer, bassist, and keyboardist, exposed him to a wide variety of music growing up, from traditional Cuban classics to 60s tunes from the Beach Boys and The Doors. Because his mother worked for an airline in South Florida, George traveled much of the Caribbean during his youth and visited Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and many other islands in the region. Accordingly, he draws much of his inspiration from roots reggae and traditional Cuban and Puerto Rican music.

After fronting a local reggae band in Central Florida during college, he began writing and performing solo acoustic songs, and finally released his first EP, "North Beach Sessions" in October 2012, which consists of 5 original songs. He moved to San Clemente, CA in 2008 and resides in the North Beach neighborhood with his wife, Ana Maria, where he continues to write and record music.

George is also the lead singer for the well-known San Clemente band, The Monsoons.

George is also a Captain in the United States Marine Corps and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

EQUIPMENT: JBL PA System, Guitar, Microphone (very easy to set up and requires one power outlet)

For my fiance's surprise birthday party, I wanted a song list that everyone could enjoy. And being in the music industry myself, I wanted a TRUE talent. George has an INCREDIBLE voice, and I loved that he could accompany himself playing guitar... Perfect night! He is professional and responsive, accommodating and warm. He was flexible with the party timing and generous with his time and talent. We also met his lovely wife, and they mixed nicely with our party guests! Everyone loved him (and Anna) both personally and professionally. I HIGHLY endorse George - he is the type of talent that your guests deserve. A true artist! I went out and bought his cd of originals. :)
