Susan Anton

A confident and engaging song stylist who wasted no time winning over the Cinegrill audience, Susan Anton displayed an admirable vocal flair as she flowed through an eclectic range of tunes. She certainly knows her way around a country song, offering adroit renderings of Shirley Eikhard's "Something to Talk About," the popular Don Williams hit "I Believe in You" and a hard-driving "What It Takes." Anton also proved she can turn on the passion as she emoted her way through the torch ballad "Since I Fell for You" and offered a sensually intense "29 Ways," enhanced by the backup harmonies of her band.

With:
Band: Michael Chanslor, Greg Hilfman, Michael Cuneo, Scott Jackson, Lynn Woolever.

Dressed casually in black shirt and slacks, the actress and Vegas showroom star sat through practically her whole set. “The ceiling’s too short,” she laughed. That didn’t stop her from romping joyously through the Glenn Frey/Jack Tempchin rocker “True Love,” the Stax/Volt standard “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” and the blues swinger “Highgate Shuffle.”

Anton exudes the youthful glow, vitality and physical allure of a 20-year-old, yet proudly proclaimed that she’s just turned 50. As if to place a parting emphasis on the need to live a positive life, she concluded her show with Bob Dylan’s prayer-like “Forever Young.”

Anton is more than supported by her five-piece ensemble: Pianist Greg Hilfman offers sensitive, mood-enhancing backing on the waltz ballad “The Color of Roses,” and Michael Cuneo’s acoustic guitar complements Anton’s deep-voiced outing on the Lennon/McCartney classic “In My Life.”
