Peabody Man Auditions For 'America's Got Talent' Playing Music With Teeth


PEABODY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — There are plenty of musicians in the Commonwealth -- but one Peabody man has got a musical style all his own.

Anthony Denucce, also known as "Anthony the Molar Man," has been turning heads since the fourth grade -- when he learned that he could play music with just his teeth and hands.

"You [how you] have your pencil on your desk sometimes -- well I used to tap that pencil on my teeth, and the next thing you know I'm flicking my teeth, and it turned into playing music," Denucce said. "I've got different pitches and tones by the movements of my tongue and the movements of my lips."

Denucce works during the day as a mail carrier in Woburn -- but regularly posts content of his side gig on his Instagram page and YouTube channel.

He has even appeared on national television shows like the David Letterman Show and the Gong Show, and will also be appearing on the current season of America's Got Talent.

"Everyone wants me to do it, so I keep doing it," he said. "My go-to song would be the William Tell Overture -- because it's fast paced and you can see my hands moving quickly."

The season of AGT first premiered on June 1, 2021. Denucce said he does not know the exact episode he will be featured in -- but said it will air sometime later this summer.
