Anthony, was born and raised in Huntington, NY. As a veteran, was a Sergeant with the United States Air Force, serving his country proudly. Anthony was in a band and he worked in military sales. He then married and started a family. He quit the band to be with his family. When his children grew older, he got back into music, which was his true passion. He loved to entertain people and get people up and dancing.
He then was discovered by Joe (LaBracio) Long (the bassist of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons) and the Jersey Four. Anthony was selected to be the lead vocalist of the Jersey Four. He was more than thrilled, since Frankie Valli was like a mentor to him. Anthony, the Jersey Four along with Joe Long recorded and released 2 new songs: I Wonder Why and Baby Baby.
