- Anthony Russo -
Denver | Raw old school style | Blues straight up
“The Anthony Russo Band – Raw old school style. Some people like to rock, we prefer the roll.”
“The Anthony Russo Band’s vintage sound is a highly flammable mixture of west coast jump/swing, rockabilly, rhythm & blues and rock’n’roll.”
“It’s a lifestyle! A deep affection and appreciation of American roots music, culture, and style. The music we play and the songs we write are the way we live every day.”
The Anthony Russo Band has played all over Colorado for the past few years, making a name for themselves and gaining widespread attention as one of the finest acts around, with their killer musicianship, raw style and exciting energetic live performances.
I'm from the southside of Denver, Colorado. I dedicated my life to playing guitar, singing & making music. It all started when I was 8. After seeing my church band perform, I was so inspired! I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life from then on.
I cut my teeth early on at Takoda Tavern. Days after I quit my day job, I attended their local jam. Soon after I was giving a residency. It was one of the best things that could of happened to me at that time. I now had a place to perform weekly, not only that but the older cat's I was playing with hiped me to the Blues, "Real Blues". I'm currently still the "Jam Master" at Takoda Tavern.
In 2013 I got a band together. We started paying our dues, playing every show we could get! Now averaging 230 gigs a year!
