The Anthony Lattanze Band formed in 2003 amidst the cattle and corn fields of central Pennsylvania. Led by a talented songwriter, the members of the five piece ensemble bring their vast influences into a tight, cohesive unit that is a blues-rock jam band explosion.
Incorporating lush horn arrangements along the likes of Van Morrison with contemporary influences such as M. Ward and Bright Eyes, the ALBâ€™s debut album, Digging Up The Past For Up and Coming Days, does just that. Throughout the album, catchy melodies and fresh lyrical imagery capture the listener while embodying a timeless spirit. Unique instrumentation sets the group apart from the stereotypical rock band. Horns, pedal steel, organ, mandolin, piano, and Latin percussion are frequently a part of the bandâ€™s recordings and concerts.
The fun and energy of the Anthony Lattanze Bandâ€™s concerts have captured audiences around the North East at events including WMMR 93.3â€™s Live Rock Show at the Grape Street Philadelphia, The Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Ocean 98.1â€™s Music For The Heat Festival in Ocean City, Maryland, and Fordham University in Bronx, New York.
The band has shared the stage with many other talented artists such as the Gin Blossoms, Herbie, Uncle Skip, Johnny Action Figure, Lower Class Citizens, and Case of the Mondays.
