Music for all occasions: weddings, corporate events, and more. Based out of Hoboken, NJ, Anthony is an accomplished musician and composer and specializes in providing quality performances that inspire and captivate his audience.
Professional, flexible, pleasure to work with.
So great having Anthony play at our event! Despite the cold, wet and windy weather he powered through like a champ with no complaints. He tailored his set list to our needs perfectly and added an amazing Italian music atmosphere to the event.
Anthony Fuscaldo arrived 30 minutes early,
Well mannered and equipped with a cross between an acoustic and a hollow body electric guitar and a small amp. He was pleasant from the moment he arrived to the moment he left. In between, he played a nice
assortment of jazz, bossa nova and standards,
Including some of my favorites, including Jobim's "Corcovado," Van Morrison's "Moondance," and Django Reinhardt. We asked for tasteful, not too loud and Anthony did exactly that and more. Solo acoustic guitar is a lot harder than it looks, and Anthony is a virtuoso. It is a pleasure to recommend him.
I hired Anthony for the past two years for our resident holiday parties and we'll for sure have him perform at our future events. Everyone loved his performances and we received so much positive feedback. Thanks Anthony!
anthony performed at my daughter's 1st birthday party. my guests absolutely adored him! he is excellent at reading the crowd and creating an appropriate play list. anthony is extremely responsive and an absolute pleasure to work with. i can't wait to throw another event and hire him again!
We hired Anthony to play for our outdoor wedding ceremony and could not have been happier! He played beautifully, was very accommodating with our requests, and was prompt, self-sufficient, and very friendly. We would definitely recommend him for any other events!
My wife and I heard Anthony perform at a first birthday party a few months ago and we knew right away that we would hire him for our son's first birthday. Anthony is an excellent performer with really strong communication skills. I highly highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking to add some good music to an event.
Anthony played for our small reunion in Central Park. He was prompt, flexible, and a terrific performer. Highly recommend.
We hired Anthony Fuscaldo to accompany our merriment at Compo Beach in Westport, CT. Anthony was a wonderful choice for our event. His jazz and bossanova performance was wonderful. Thank you Anthony!
I hired Anthony on a VERY quick timeline for a small reception I was having for work. He responded so quickly and in a very professional manner that I was impressed right off the bat. He shared his website, samples of music, etc so I knew what he could do. Throughout the next couple days, he was very responsive and open to event protocol that we were employing. Moreover, he was flexible and patient with the payment process as I was very busy at the time. Finally, his music was great and a wonderful addition to our evening.
