About the Show

Triple-threat singer/songwriter/pianist, Tony DeSare returns to the SCA! From jazz clubs to Carnegie Hall to Las Vegas headlining with Don Rickles, and major symphony orchestras, Tony has brought his fresh take on old school class around the globe. He has three Top 10 Billboard jazz albums under his belt and has been featured on the CBS Early Show, NPR, A Prairie Home Companion, the Today Show and his music has been posted by social media celebrity juggernaut, George Takei. Tony starred in Mason Street Warehouse productions of Our Sinatra in 2002 and 2012. His popular “Song Diaries” on YouTube and Facebook blew up over the past two years, with tens of thousands of fans, across the world, listening to his daily takes on standards like “Nice and Easy” “You Make Me Feel So Young”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” “Blackbird” “The Glory of Love” and many more. In this special solo concert, Tony takes the audience on a journey spanning a century of popular music from Gershwin, Porter and Berlin to Bacharach, the Beatles, Billy Joel and Elton John – and Tony’s heartfelt originals. Don’t miss Tony’s only Michigan performance in ‘22, right here at the SCA.
