Anthony Ramos has made a name for himself telling the stories of a founding father in Hamilton and as a friend of an artist on her journey to fame in a A Star is Born.
Now, he is carving a new path on tour, sharing his own story and his debut album, “The Good & The Bad”
After Berklee School of Music alum, Elliot Skinner concluded the opening set, Ramos opened his November 3rd Brighton Music Hall show with “Dear Diary.” Before his second song, “Auntie’s Basement,” he told the sold out crowd about one of his first Hollywood parties. He revealed how his agent had convinced him that the party would be the best party of his life. However, it did not live up to the hype and instead made him realize how much he enjoyed the parties where he was surrounded by friends and family.
Family, was a theme that Ramos carried throughout the show: by thanking the band in his introduction, pointing out his brother’s presence in the audience and in the passion he showed in each shared story that recounted memories about family, friends and mentors.
During the show, Ramos also gave the women in his family special recognition saying “I think there’s no love on this earth that’s more powerful than a woman’s love.”
As the show came to a close, Ramos told the crowd “The character in our story has realized the journey is over and it’s time to go home” and with that Ramos, the beloved “character,” left the stage.
