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!"

We give Doug Anthony a rating of 5 in each category. Not only was he quick to respond to all of my emails, but he was professional and knew exactly how to read my guest and knew what songs to play. It was tough to chose from the list of songs on his website and he assured me not to worry, he knew exactly what to do and he did! I will definitely recommend him to any friends/family for special events!

Doug was so easy to work with! He made great suggestions on song selection. He understood the venue and the acoustics. I arranged everything long distance and he made it so simple. He's a great musician!
Just the right touch for a small intimate ceremony.

Doug is AMAZING!! I live in Houston but I got married at Chapel Dulcinea in Austin on Feb. 18, 2017 and just a couple months before the wedding my music plan for the ceremony fell through. I found Doug on Gig Masters and he replied to my MULTIPLE emails promptly and answered my MILLION questions (yes, I’m that annoying bride lol) Doug didn’t make me feel like a burden at all though.
So its the BG DAY and I barely emailed him that morning to tell him what song I wanted to walk down to since I was having a hard time to decide which wasn’t a problem for him at all! He had me pay my balance via paypal while I was getting ready which was super fast and easy and I didn’t have to worry about doing the transaction at the wedding venue in front of our guests. There’s a long trail before you get to the chapel and I couldn’t see anything or anyone..but I could HEAR the music and it was so soft, romantic and lovely and that’s when everything got REAL and exciting for me. He was absolutely perfect and he sat in the corner (dressed very nicely btw..) where he can still be seen and heard but not take the spotlight (duh, that’s my job lol)
He was the least of my worries. He answered my questions, I paid him, and he got there and immediately set up.. simple as that! I am so glad I found him and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Sorry of the long review…the experience was just so perfect that I had to explain!!

First of all, I'd like to say that we were planning our wedding from 375 miles away. We didn't even meet Doug until the big day. We communicated entirely via email, yet never once did I have a worry about Doug! He provided pre-ceremony, ceremony and cocktail hour music for our small, outdoor wedding. He was super easy and pleasant to work with! I think the moment he stepped on the property, he knew the vibe we were going for. He achieved that and more! I highly recommend him for any size wedding or event, as he knows his craft well and will take care of providing a great musical atmosphere. Thank you so much, Doug!

Doug was a dream come true. We listened to a lot of musicians and were even deciding between two when it came down to it, but we chose Doug. Absolutely no regrets. Doug gave us examples of the songs we wanted to hear within a week and replied to every email so quickly it was just what you would want. Having my husbands and my song playing when I walked down the aisle made tears fall the ENTIRE time. It was just beautiful. Thank you so much Doug! Five stars well deserved.

Doug played at our wedding ceremony in October 2016. He has a wonderful talent with the acoustic guitar. We had an outdoor ceremony so we thought it best to have an acoustic guitarist play. From Doug’s list of music, we chose a few key songs but let him choose the rest by reading our guests. When his song list didn’t include the song we had wanted as the recessional, he offered to learn it. He was quick with correspondence via email and flexible when it came to scheduling. His professionalism and talent made him a great choice for our wedding.
