About Anthony Geraci:
If you were to think of any modern Blues Legend chances are that Anthony Geraci has backed them up. Muddy Waters, B.B., King, Otis Rush, Big Mama Thorton, Chuck Berry and countless others have had Anthony’s fiery piano accompanying them. Anthony was nominated for a Grammy in 2000 for his work on Super Harps I (Telarc Records) that also features James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Branch, and Sugar Ray Norcia. You can also hear him on Ronnie Earls first two releases on the Black Top record label They Call Me Mr. Earl, and Smokin’.
Anthony was the leader of his own band “Little Anthony and the Loco-Motives” that toured extensively in the North East United States and Canada, where they played at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and many Labatt Blues Festivals throughout Quebec. Their two records on the Deluge Label Can’t Take It, and Don’t Wait on Me, both received rave reviews.
In Spring of 1997 Anthony Toured twelve European Countries with Mark Hummel, and vocalist Michelle Wilson.
