Rev. Dr. Tony Siders & Company
GOSPEL TO THE PELICAN
Sunday, January 23 at 6:30 pm
A truly fabulous musician and singer/songwriter, Tony Siders started playing the piano in the basement of Hilltop Baptist Church in West Palm Beach when he was just five years old, and his deep roots in South Florida’s Gospel community go back several generations. From serving as Maestro of The Palm Beach Super Choir to leading the musical group Tony Siders & Company, the talented gospel musician is highly touted by his famous aunt, Broadway-Cabaret-Movie/TV star Avery Sommers.
“Years ago, when I was in Las Vegas singing with Doc Severinsen, who led the orchestra on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, he was so impressed by Tony’s playing that he brought him out to play for the sophisticated Vegas crowd. I was thrilled by Doc’s professional generosity, and truly believe my extraordinary nephew is anointed,” says Sommers.
“Ever since, I have watched and listened as Tony honed his skills in many different churches, both big and small, not only in South Florida but also in Atlanta, New Orleans and New York. Everywhere he plays, audiences are impressed with how his music touches their hearts and souls,” she adds. “I invite all of my friends and fans to join me next Sunday as we bring joy and jubilation to the Pelican Café,”
