Anthony Pentikis, born in Somerville, Massachusetts, developed a passion for Greek music as a young boy picking up his first bouzouki when he was just 8 years old. A self taught musician, Anthony took to the stage professionally at the age of 12. By the time he was 14 years old, Anthony began playing weddings and parties throughout the Boston area. In the 1970’s, he founded The Glendopetha with local musicians who entertained audiences in New England and across the country.
Thoughout a music career that has spanned more than three decades, Anthony has entertained the likes of Anthony Quinn, President and First Lady Gerald and Betty Ford and had even played “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” on the bouzouki before thousands of Mets fans at Shea stadium. Anthony was invited to play with tenor Mario Frangules.
Today, Anthony plays with the band Orfeas.
Anthony resides in Lynn, Massachusetts with his wife, Sophia and daughters, Joanna and Christina.
