CONCERT REVIEW by Mark E. Waterbury
Anthony Z’sler - Woodstock Coffee House - Woodstock, Georgia - June 25, 2005
Some musicians just know there is a right way to do it. That is why you find Newnan, Georgia’s Anthony Z’sler in a tiny coffee house in Woodstock - still in suburban Atlanta but figuratively light-years away from Anthony’s home burb - on a warm early summer’s eve. A veteran with several area bands, Anthony had recently released his first solo CD “Count The Stars” and is road warrioring around the ATL and beyond spreading the gospel of his singer/songwriting talents, both with his band and in solo and duo capacities. This June evening found Anthony joined by guitarist/background vocalist and good friend Rob. From the first moments of the show until the final notes faded, you realized that Anthony respects the performance aspect of the right way to do it. With an emotive voice that has a Dave Matthews inflection but far more melodic, Anthony is a dynamic performer who exudes the feelings and subtle intensities of his music on stage. He doesn’t have to jump around and wield his guitar like a lightsaber to accomplish this. Nevertheless, you can feel the power of the music radiating from him and into the audience. Original songs like the sweetly passionate “All The Time,” the uplifting toe tapping title track from “Count The Stars” and ethereal Coldplay feel of “Fade Into Me” transfer quite well into the stripped down coffee house atmosphere. Beyond the originals, Anthony and Rob interjected unique and enjoyable interpretations of songs from the likes of Bob Marley and even Neil Diamond. Both Anthony and Rob also displayed their acoustic guitar talents, adding to the show’s intrigue. It is apparent that Anthony won some new fans that evening, which proves that, yes, he is doing it the right way. Obviously comfortable on stage, and with the mantra that no matter what the size of the crowd you lay it on the line every time you plug in your six string and step to the mic, Anthony’s highly enjoyable music and captivating live performances should make him a burgeoning presence on the Atlanta music scene and beyond for many years to come. http://www.anthonyzsler.com
