Anxious was founded in 1990 by lead vocalist, Kelly Farrar, and bassist, Gary Newell. David Brooks is the drummer while also providing the majority of backup vocals. The newest member of the band, Paul Metsger, joins Michael Lee Starks on guitar.Although there have been personnel changes since the 1993 debut album, "Traveled So Far", the current lineup offers the most energetic and diverse live show to date. The set list and show presentation has and always will be different from the norm. Anxious has performed with more national touring acts than any other band in this region, Performing with bands has provided big opportunities for great exposure to large audiences. The experience alone has proven invaluable. Anxious also performs regularly at area festivals and events like Holiday inDixie, Red River Revel, and 4th of July Fireworks. The band is also a favorite at private engagements. Herd, McElroy & Vestal, Cornerstone Rehabilitation, Southfield School Parents & Staff, and Dr. Lacy Williams are just some of the clients Anxious performed for in the calendar year 2005.
