Doug Anthony is a versatile solo acoustic guitarist and wedding guitarist with decades of performance experience and five star reviews on Gigmasters, The Knot, Wedding Wire and Gigsalad. He performs for any type of event including corporate events, wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions and private parties and specializes in music from such artists as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennett, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Elton John, Nat King Cole, Merle Haggard, Billie Holiday, Bill Withers, Willie Nelson, Gipsy Kings, Johhny Cash, Louis Armstrong and more.



"I have been performing for 35 years and I still love what I do. I am a full time musician and I perform regularly for private events. Even though I have been playing the guitar for so long there is still so much to learn. I enjoy the process of learning new things and improving on what I already know. There are endless ways you can play a song and there are so many good songs to play. I was born in 1966 so I am heavily influenced by the music around that era which explains The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and The Great American Songbook.

I have lived in Austin since 1989 so I have watched it grow to what it is now. I have played just about every kind of music with just about every kind of band. For the past 15 years I have been focusing on solo guitar for private events and during that time I have had the chance to create a great rapport with many Austin area venues, event planners and wedding officiants.? It's always nice to show up at an event and see a familiar face.

I pride myself in my professionalism. Communication and punctuality are important to me because I know they are important to my clients and colleagues so I always arrive on time and respond to emails and phone calls as soon as I am able. If you have any questions about anything please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!"

Doug was a perfect choice for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I chose the ceremony songs based on his recommendations (he made it so easy for me since I had no clue), and then I let him pick everything else for the cocktail hour and reception. I had my concerns about what songs might be played or if people would get tired of hearing the guitar for so long (we did not book a band). All of his song choices were perfect, very pleasant and the guitar playing did not get old at all. I couldn't be happier that we used him for the wedding. Everyone else enjoyed his music, as well. I will absolutely recommend him to anyone in the future.

Doug is outstanding! His music selections were spot on and his timing during the ceremony impeccable.
He responded quickly to our requests, worked with us when we couldn't decide on the music for the ceremony, and his playing brought our beautiful, outdoor ceremony alive. I highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to make that special day truly magnificent!

Doug was a fantastic help with our wedding! We were planning everything from out of town, and he was very responsive and accomodating to us (even helping the bride surprise her groom with a song during the reception!)

We were thrilled with the selection of music he played, and his willingness to learn new pieces to accomodate us!

Doug Anthony was the perfect choice for my garden wedding! He responded to emails quickly, and he was helpful and forthright when gathering information and settling the details of the contract. He assured me he would be able to match however fancy or casual the ceremony would be, and he left the choices of songs up to me. He has a list of songs he can play available on his website, and the list covers a range of styles. My guests really enjoyed his music before the ceremony started, as he was able to play to the crowd. Doug arrived well ahead of time, remained professional despite the Texas heat, and was very friendly. I would highly recommend him to any bride or groom looking for a guitarist!

Doug creates a great atmosphere for both your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! He is not over powering like a DJ or full band may be, but his music allows everyone to carry on conversations without having to scream to each other. I do not plan on getting married again, but any occasion I can think of as an excuse to use his excellent musical ability I plan to do so in the future.

We loved Doug Anthony! He is such a wonderful guitar player. He played for our 30 mins before the ceremony, during the processional and recessional, and cocktail hour. Our guests loved him and are still mentioning the "great guitarist". We were glad to hear our guests loved him just as much as we did.
He is professional, very easy to communicate with, and offers a great price for his services!

I suggest you book Doug Anthony for your next event. You will not regret it!

WOW. What an amazing addition to an already amazing day. Doug was easily one of the most complimented parts of our wedding and he catered the music to our outdoor wedding perfectly. Everyone really enjoyed the ceremony and cocktail hour with him playing beautifully in the background. Thank you Doug for making our day so seamless and special.
