Solo Guitar Austin


Doug Anthony is a versatile solo guitarist with decades of performance experience. Five star reviewed he frequently performs in and around Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Fredicksburg and Central Texas for corporate events, weddings, private parties and more.


Doug started playing guitar at age 14 in Corpus Christi, Texas. His first interest was of course rock and roll. Listening to 70s and early 80s rock bands he learned all he could until he was introduced to the blues. At age 19 he attended Del Mar College in Corpus Christi where he studied with Chester Rupe, a seasoned veteran of jazz and an outstanding guitarist. Rupe had a big influence on Doug as well as many other musicians that hailed from Corpus. Through that connection Doug met and performed with local musicians where he was exposed to other styles of music such as R&B and Tejano. When he turned 21 he started experimenting with other instruments such as harmonica and saxophone which he played in local blues bands.

In 1989 Doug moved to Austin to expand his musical environment. With the huge variety of music Austin had to offer he continued to learn new genres of music and new instruments to play. Bass is one of those instruments that he quickly learned to master playing in jazz, funk, rock, world and country bands where he honed his skills learning from some of Austin's finest musicians.
