One of those talents, guitarist Bruce Anthony, hails from Dover. Although he's only been out on his own as a solo artist for a short while, Anthony has performed pro- fessionally since age 16. "At about age 25, I stopped playing for 15 years," said Anthony, who was born in Chester, Pa. "I didn't touch a guitar at all and I got a job. About three years ago I picked up a guitar and started playing again." ............................. - [ Keith Killgo will peform with spe- cial guest Sam Smith at Sydney's Blues & Jazz Restaurant, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2-3. Anthony said much of his support and along with classics by Fats Waller, Nat inspiration came from his wife, watercolor artist Lyse Anthony. "She's been very supportive of my career," he said. "We were at a concert one night, watching a guitar player. I looked at her and I said, 'I can do that.' I went out the next day and bought a guitar." Anthony said it was then.he left his full- time job as a restaurant manager and embarked upon a solo career as a musician. He said getting paid to play gigs is like a dream come true. "I count my blessings every day," he said. He developed his style while performing in different rhythm-and-blues bands in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Anthony has entertained at many fine dining establish- ments in the Cape Region and continues to perform his unique style of jazz-influenced acoustic guitar. Upcoming performances include Syd- ney's Blues & Jazz Restaurant, 7-11 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 4, and a jazz festival brunch, 9 a.m. to noon at the Dream Caf6 on Balti- more Avenue. Anthony said he also per- forms at Oscar's Seafood Restaurant and Eden Garden Caf6. His debut CD, "Dreams & Visions," pro- duced and recorded at his in*home studio, includes much of his originally composed and arranged material. Among his original arranged work is a unique version of Joni Mitchell's "The Jungle Line." The album also includes fellow Dover musicians Butch Cannon, Larry Gomes, Kevin Van Syckle and Mike Nielsen. "Dreams & Visions" inlcudes eight songs composed and arranged by Anthony. His repertoire includes original compositions "King" Cole and George Gershwin.
