Anthony Ainsworth

Tonight’s featured artist by Sounds From the Cellar is Anthony Ainsworth. Anthony has been playing tunes in our area for several years. I can remember the old days of the Julep Room and the many drinks spent with Anthony. I can gurantee you that you will have a great time tonight. So make your plans now to make it to the Julep Room and while you are there be sure to request the song ‘Fred’. Its a masterpiece that will outlive time as we know it.

Check out Sounds From the Cellar for more information about this new internet radio station in our area.

Check out some pictures we took of Gina Turner and Anthoy Ainsworth in action at the Julep Room last year.

Much like most boys born and raised in South Mississippi Anthony Ainsworth began his musical journey in the church children’s choir. With a unique voice and a love for singing Anthony instantly stood out and grabbed up any oppritunities that came for singing a solo in the Sunday services. In his early teens the country music scene was booming with acts such as Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Allen Jackson, . . . . . while the rock stations were playing Metalica and Nirvana, Anthony took a liking to both, thus explaining his jagged edge style of country, if you asked him what kind of music he plays he’ll likely answer “I call it country”. At the age of fourteen Anthony began writing, “mostly trial and error”, at seventeen he started taking guitar lessons, played his first paying gig at nineteen, and has been hanging around the local music scene since.

Article by Gina Turner

Have you ever walked into a place and felt like you were in on something special? The Julep Room, located in the cellar of Aunt Jenny’s restaurant in Ocean Springs, is a shining example of a well kept secret raising its voice and spreading the news: Original Music Lives Here.

The Julep Room’s roots run deep and far, mingling with music since even before it became one of Elvis’ favorite Coast haunts. The venue is the home of the oldest (and for a long time ONLY) all-original Songwriters Nights, known as the premier spot for singer-songwriters and bands to showcase their original music to an appreciative crowd. Not only that, but it’s faithfully remained the most consistent venue in the area, hosting live music of every persuasion six to seven nights a week.

The cellar also puts a new twist on tapping into the spirits, as local lore will tell you the place is more than just a nice place to have a drink…it’s been regarded as a nice place to see a ghost too (and THAT is a whole other history best told by one of the many ‘regulars.’ Stop in sometime and ask about it.)

It’s all of these things and more that makes The Julep Room so special amongst its peers. And what pushes it over the edge of ‘awesomeness?’ – THE PEOPLE who frequent it. The people, the sounds, the visual (floor joists hanging just overhead, just the ‘right’ lighting, the spirit of a cozy pub, the musicians, the folks behind the bar culminate to make the Julep experience once for the books. Curious? Go see.

On Friday, December 12, 2009 from 10pm-2am, The Julep Room and local performer Gina Turner are teaming up for a Toys For Tots drive. The night will feature music from Gina as well as early performances by Anthony Ainsworth, Matt Hoggatt, and Danielle Thomas – three of the area’s greatest songwriters. ADMISSION FOR THE EVENING = 1 NEW, UNWRAPPED TOY and there will DEFINITELY be some surprises in store. So, if you’ve never stepped a foot into the cellar, December 12th is a fantastic night to do it. If you’ve been there before but not in a while, December 12th is a fantastic night to revisit. If you’ve been looking for a reason to celebrate the season in the most spirited mix of music, magic and mostly importantly – charity – December 12th is the best day of the whole year to make a trip over…and, well…under!
