MUSICIAN Born:

Anthony Dowd

Born in Richmond, Va in 1957, Anthony started playing piano by ear at age six. Much of what he heard on television was figured out on the piano, but he did begin formal lessons at age 12 and studied for about five years. When he was in high school he came across his parent's big band records and that got him hooked on swing and looking for more jazz piano. A few weeks after graduating Benedictine High School, Anthony got a job playing piano with a local big band, The Kings Of Swing, at Kings Dominion Amusement Park. That led to jobs with Busch Gardens and Carnival Cruise Lines. In the early 80s' Anthony moved to Hartford, CT and honed his solo piano skills at local restaurants, modeling his playing after pianist Dave McKenna

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
