PAUL ANTHONY BAND
with my best friend, P J Scope on harp…PAUL ANTHONY BAND, originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Paul started playing guitar at age five. He was gigging professionally at 15 and soon joined one of Cleveland’s top bands Real Steel at only 16! The band’s huge following soon landed them a deal with Auburn Records. At a very young age Paul was opening for many major acts such as Rick Derringer, Blackfoot, Savatage and The Bullet Boys just to name a few!
Unfortunately all good things come to an end and after five hard working years, internal differences left him no other choice but to leave his beloved Real Steel.
Soon after, in January of 1994, The PAUL ANTHONY BAND was formed. After a year of gigging around the Cleveland scene the band and their families decided to move to warm and sunny St. Petersburg, Florida
