I was lucky enough to be able to chat with Anthony about his musical career and various projects he's worked on in the past.  Anthony is currently involved in the band Fall From Sanity (Progressive Rock Band from Burlington, Vermont. Blair Shedd - Vocals, Matt Sicard - Guitar, Anthony Girelli - Drums/Keys, Sean Dollar - Bass), with members spread across the state of Vermont.  This is a special project because most of  he members have only played together a few times in person.  Each band mate records their individual part and then Anthony has been mastering the tracks into very polished and impressive heavy rock pieces.  Listen to them on ReverbNation.
Talking with Corey and Donnie of Concept Medley Games, a VT based board game company that was founded in 2017.  They have been nominated for several awards and have even won a few!
