Johnson Distinguished Guest Artist. Fly away to the moon and back with jazz crooner and piano man Tony DeSare in a mesmerizing celebration of ultimate pop piano mainstays like Billy Joel, Elton John, Prince, The Bee Gees, and many others! With looks, charisma and exquisite taste and style, the up-and-coming piano whiz has been compared to Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé and Jamie Cullum.
“The highly rhythmic “Something’s Gotta Give” and the wistfulness of “It Was a Very Good Year” further endeared DeSare to the audience with his well-prepared but fresh-sounding delivery.”
“He delivered irresistibly romantic pieces like “Last First Kiss” and “How I Will Say I Love You” with the only thing missing was Gene Tierney leaning over the piano.”
“Tall and slender, his boyish good looks might remind one of the young Ricky Nelson.”
“DeSare’s vocal was like a warm and intimate conversation.”
“DeSare brought solid keyboard attack, fierce focus, and more impressive skill.”
