Combining wry playfulness with impressive musicality, DeSare’s deft touch at the piano complements an engaging vocal style. With inspirations ranging from Sinatra to Prince, he is a Vail Jazz favorite. He is polished, but with an easygoing, retro-cool persona. Having headlined from posh international jazz clubs to Carnegie Hall, DeSare offers a rare solo performance in an intimate, supper club setting.

DeSare tips his hat to the Rat Pack, backed by the dynamic 17-piece H2 Big Band, one of today’s most exhilarating, well-drilled sound machines. Together they offer a suave, energetic take on the “Vegas Songbook” with Tony leading the charge with his usual panache on a journey with Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Basie, and Nelson Riddle, recreating the classic sounds of the iconic Sands Hotel in the ‘60s.
