“DeSare belongs to a group of neo-traditional upstarts stretching from Harry Connick Jr, to Michael Bublé and Jamie Cullum. DeSare covers old and newer pop and jazz standards without smothering or over-thinking the material.”- USA Today

The evening begins with cocktails available for purchase and a pre-event swing-dance class. The Hoytt Theater's soft lighting, candle-lit cabaret tables and room for dancing on the wooden floor sets the mood. The music will knock your socks off.
Tony DeSare performs with infectious joy, wry playfulness, and robust musicality. His takes on classic standards and sophisticated original compositions have earned him a reputation as one of country’s hottest young singer/pianists. His sound is romantic, swinging and sensual, but what sets Tony apart is his ability to write original material that sounds fresh and at the same time blends seamlessly with the Great American Songbook. Tony has the capability to glide from a standard by George Gershwin to a contemporary classic by Bob Dylan or Phil Collins to one of his inventive original songs with ease.
“With his dark hair, bright brown eyes and toothpaste smile that rarely fades,” “Saviors of the Great American Songbook, one of it’s most promising young male performers, Tony DeSare, a Sinatra acolyte in his early 30s who sings Prince as well as Johnny Mercer” New York Times
