Get ready for contemporary piano driven Blues by award-winning musician, Anthony Geraci. The real fun comes when Geraci ignites the players in his band, The Boston Blues All-Stars rolling through modern and traditional blues numbers to bring the audience to their feet!
Pianist, Hammond organist, and composer Anthony Geraci was born in New Haven, CT in 1954. His interest in playing piano began at age four when he told his parents “I want a piano!” Kind of an odd request when most kids want a new baseball glove or bicycle. His parents weren’t musical-not even a record player at their house- but they always supported their son’s undeniable passion for music. They soon bought a Kimball Grand Piano that his mother paid 4 dollars a week to own. Lessons at the Neighborhood School of Music which was affiliated with Yale University soon followed. At around the age of sixteen, he befriended a fellow musician, Ed Cherry at high school. They soon began listening to music together after school and one day Ed played a Jimmy Rogers recording, Chicago Bound that literally changed his life. Ed went on to be Dizzy Gillespie’s guitarist for many years.
