Anthony Cullins is a young musical prodigy whose guitar playing ability is years beyond his age. Anthony's musical influences include R&B, funk, rock and blues, prominently displayed in his eclectic improvisational style, ranging from Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton to George Benson and Wah Wah Watson with dozens of influences in between.  

He's had the opportunity to share the stage and jam with a wide array of notable musicians including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Greg Douglass (former guitarist with the Steve Miller Band), blues harmonica great, James Harman, guitarist Laura Chavez, (voted by Guitar Player Magazine as one of the top 50 women guitarists in the world), former Ike Turner bassist, Kevin Cooper and first call session guitarists, Gino Matteo and Stevie Salas to name a few.

Above all that, his guitar prowess speaks for itself no matter who is joining him on stage as duly noted by Boogie Magazine: "Anthony has guitar skills reminiscent of young guitarists Joe Bonamassa and Jonny Lang." This comparison came to fruition in May, 2018, when he took first place at the Dallas International Guitar Show's "Young Guns" showcase, featuring a host of 20 year olds and under guitar slingers from around the world. "It was such an amazing experience, I enjoyed every second of this humbling moment." His dad and manager, Kenny Cullins, couldn't be happier: "I got teared up and was full of joy and pride as they drug Anthony away to several photo shoots, I just smiled and thought to myself how happy I am for my boy and that all of the hard work is paying off."

Now that he is finally 21, Anthony and his band are hitting the road and don't plan on looking back. Two new studio albums are in the works. One with legendary drummer and producer Alvino Bennett who has played with Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Loggins, Robin Trower, Patrice Rushen, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Dave Mason to name a few. As well as Dave Blackburn who he studied with growing up. A live record from his 21st birthday party will also be out soon as a limited run wooden handmade vinyl record and CD. The future looks bright for this young man. Don't miss his live show if the band is traveling in your town.

Originally formed in Oakdale, California in 2013, Alex Lucero's music crosses genres ranging from; soul, funk, jazz, jazz fusion, Afro Cuban, Reggae and Americana.
