On Wednesday, January 8, the Gold Coast Jazz Society presents jazz pianist and vocalist Tony DeSare.   DeSare will be backed by Ed Decker on guitar and Steve  Doyle on bass.  The concert will take place at the Amaturo Theater of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW 5th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale at 7:45pm.  Single tickets are available for $45 per person.  Students and teacher tickets are $10 with valid ID.  To purchase tickets call the Broward Center AutoNation Box Office at 954-462-0222 or online at www.browardcenter.org.  To learn more about this, go to his website at www.tonydesare.com

A triple threat - singer, pianist and songwriter - Tony DeSare has won critical and popular acclaim from his concert performances throughout the United States as well as Australia, Japan and Hong Kong.  DeSare performs with infectious joy, wry playfulness, and robust musicality and his sound is romantic, swinging yet sensual. His take on classic standards and sophisticated original compositions have earned him a reputation as one of country’s hottest young singer/pianists.

DeSare’s newest  CD, Piano, was released in October of this year and includes covers of classic and contemporary jazz featuring DeSare’s unique spin.  One of the songs featured on the Piano CD, Chemistry, recently won first place in the jazz category and second place overall at the USA  Songwriting Competition. 

Tickets are available for this concert at the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office.  For further information call the Gold Coast Jazz Society at 954-524-0805 or online www.goldcoastjazz.org
