Matthew Anthony is highly recommended

"Matthew's performance was excellent. He displayed a wide range of music for all ages and kept the guests interested throughout. The last set was particularly enjoyable as nobody left the dance floor once they had stepped on it. Matthew showed impressive range of vocals and played the guitar very well. Everybody enjoyed his performance and many of our guests commented on how impressed they were."

Tailoring Your Event
Since 2010 Matthew has honed his craft to produce two exciting live options:

* The Electric Set- dazzling live electric guitar & vocals to professionally recorded tracks, guaranteed to get the joint rocking! Here you’ll find rock, pop, indie, funk, soul, RnB, rap & more, from the 1950s… to this very month!

With such a diverse repertoire, Matthew knows exactly how to design the ideal set list to suit your event. From your first conversation you can discuss your personal tastes, your clientele/guests and how you’d like Matthew’s music to make your event flow seamlessly… or go with a bang! You can then browse and individually request tracks from his list, give a general theme or direction, or allow Matthew to use his wealth of on-stage experience to judge the mood and crowd for every step of your event, including background music before, after, and between his live sets.

The Man Behind the Music
Matthew Anthony graduated from the University of Leeds in 2004 with a BA in Popular & World Musics. Before that he sang, played and composed with several original acts - from punk rock and metal bands to West African ensembles.

Matthew cut his professional teeth playing lead guitar onboard P&O’s Ocean Village, touring the Med and Caribbean. As well as nightly House band slots, he’d support at least three visiting acts each week – including tributes to the Blues Brothers, Queen and Robbie, originals Bucks Fizz and The Supremes – not to mention frequent acoustic and jazz sets, and full-blown rock’n’roll crew gigs below deck.

In 2005 Matthew began touring the UK and Europe extensively with Vogue Madonna, playing regularly to over 10,000 at Liverpool's Mathew Street and Glastonbudget festivals, as well as 5,000+ audiences in Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland and Portugal. Now pursuing successful independent musical careers, the line-up still perform internationally as The American Divas.

Previous venues & clients
Career highlights stretch from Mathew St in Liverpool, Glastonbudget and The Sage in Gateshead, to countless European festivals including the fabulous Opera Lesna in Poland. Matthew’s solo act has been booked at Edgbaston Stadium, White Hart Lane Tottenham, Westfield London and numerous impressive wedding venues up and down the country. Previous corporate clients include O2 Telefonica, P&O, Gala Coral, Microsoft, Versace, Boots, BG Group (British Gas), HSBC & Virgin. Matthew is a firm favourite at Battersea’s notorious pizzeria Bunga Bunga (aka “The Englishman’s Italian”) – as featured in the Telegraph, Independent and Sunday Times – and performs weekly at live music venues in and around London.

Matthew's performance was excellent. He displayed a wide range of music for all ages and kept the guests interested throughout. The last set was particularly enjoyable as nobody left the dance floor once they had stepped on it. Matthew showed impressive range of vocals and played the guitar very well. Everybody enjoyed his performance and many of our guests commented on how impressed they were.

In a business where there are always people looking to steal the spotlight there is a reason Matthew Anthony has been a weekly regular here for almost 3 years. The versatility of his sets coupled with his ability allowing such a large back catalog of hits makes him the perfect choice for any occasion or audience. He can command the room with an unplugged guitar set or his own PA system to get the room rocking.

We knew he was an exceptionally good performer, that's why we booked him. A first rate guitarist, with an excellent voice and wide repertoire, ably supported by his iPad full of backing tracks. He is also immensely likeable, and our guests enjoyed his presence as much as his musicianship. He steered the guests through their evening with great skill, gently building up their involvement until the whole party was on its feet and dancing.

I had been planning my 50th birthday party for some months and felt Matthews music selection matched my own and his clips seemed very good. He arrived on time, setup in a professional manner and was very easy going and amenable, allowing us to start when people had grabbed drinks and food, At no times did he rush us or do anything but create a cool and calm manner. He came over as a really likeable nice guy, and he had us liking him even before he sang. He did 3 x 40 minute sessions and his singing was just amazing, he sounded great, people couldn't believe he was singing live. He really captured the party atmosphere and everyone was up and dancing and singing, it really was a fantastic party. He followed the playlist I sent him very closely, but I agreed that he should go with what he thinks is best, which at times he did and he was always right. Everyone at the party and afterwards commented on how great he was. He far exceeded my expectations and has left us with a memory of a great party.

Matthew really went above and beyond with his performance, we were absolutely thrilled at the extra effort he went to. We had told Matthew that the party had a Back to the Future theme and asked if he could play Johnny B Goode and Power of Love from the soundtrack, but Matthew did so much more than that. He learned quotes from the film and acted them out when he played Johnny B Goode, he learned extra songs from the soundtrack and he even did a costume change halfway through his first set to fit in with the music changing from 50s to 80s. Our guests loved him and so did we! 11/10!
