Purchased CD at Seacrets in Ocean City
I had the pleasure of spending a Saturday evening with my friends for girls weekend at Seacrets where we listened to the sounds of Anthem. I must say it was without a doubt a great ride. The music and harmony was just what we needed to set the evening off...
I purchased your Serious CD and of course it is off the hook.
Much luck to all of you as you pursue your dreams...looking forward to seeing and hearing you again at Seacrets in September.
Thanks for making our girls weekend pleasurable and memorable!

BRAVO! The "Serious" CD is an excellent combination of music and songs.
I purchased the SERIOUS CD at Seacrets in July, 2001, while vacationing in Ocean City, MD. Your selection of songs is wonderful. The beat keeps people dancing until dawn. Keep up the good work. When will your next CD be completed?


As I listen to It Starts In The Heart i can feel Anthem performing this song, cr
Feeling joy beyond words, written words could never express the pleasure your CD have given me (IT STARTS IN THE HEART)


This is wonderful reggae; a bit reminiscent of the best Brazilian reggae. Heavy beat, good songs expertly performed, singing IN TUNE (not a given these days!), altogether very enjoyable. Congratulations and keep up the good work!

African Nia

Reggae with a modern western tune
Thanks for the link.
Good job. Keep on doing what you do!

This was different. It had a modern dance tune twist to it.



Awesome!!!!! , I purchased a copy of the CD when i left
I went to see Anthem at Club SHINE!! and it was reeeal GREAT,I like the way they performed, Had me juggling to the beat whole night, MAXIUM!! respec to the BAND..Blessed!!!!


Wonderful Group
I purchased this CD when I went to Seacrets in Ocean City. I really enjoyed this CD. It was really good. I like the way that the group performed at Seacrets. They seem like they have alot of energy and love what they do. I know that I will be returning to Seacrets whenever they are there to see them perform again. Keep up the good work.


Excellent sound and harmony
Wonderful cd. Each song is a unique sound that has never been heard before. Where some songs sound just like other artist these do not. Thanks for the new sound.
