The Royal Room Cabaret Presents Tony DeSare with Bucky Pizzarelli
The Royal Room Cabaret Presents Tony DeSare with Bucky Pizzarelli November 7-8 and 14-15. The Colony Hotel – which The Palm Beach Post has hailed as "probably the best cabaret on the planet" – plans another sizzling, song-filled season at the hotel's celebrated Royal Room, featuring some really hot headliners straight from Manhattan's most sophisticated nightspots and Broadway – including, in fact, a Royal Room regular who was a 2008 Tony Award nominee.
"The Colony's 2008-2009 Cabaret Season will be our biggest and best ever. Instead of having to fly up to New York City to see major cabaret stars at the Algonquin's Oak Room, the Carlyle or Feinstein's at the Regency, fans of the Great American Songbook now can enjoy many of the same extraordinary performers within the cozy confines of the Royal Room. I can guarantee the quality of these performers because I personally reviewed each one, " promises Roger Everingham, general manager of Palm Beach's favorite boutique hotel, which has repeatedly earned the highly coveted "4-Diamond Rating, " from AAA.
Widely considered to be one of the top cabaret venues in the country, The Colony's Royal Room has scheduled another audience-pleasing line-up of performers. Tony DeSare with Bucky Pizzarelli will perform on November 7-8 as well as November 14 – 15.
Coming to The Colony directly from New York's Carlyle Hotel is swinging singer/pianists Tony DeSare, an elegant, young crowd-pleaser whose singing style ranges from dreamy pop standards to boogie-woogie and R&B. Appearing with DeSare at The Colony will be the great jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli.
Reviews of Tony DeSare include The New York Times: "A lean baby Sinatra with burning brown eyes and flashing teeth…his sly performance establishes the kind of connection to a younger generation that has helped make Michael Bublé a heartthrob among upscale women in their teens and early 20s…his intonation and enunciation are impeccable." USA Today reported, "DeSare belongs to a group of neo-traditional upstarts stretching from Harry Connick, Jr. to Michael Bublé and Jamie Cullum. But this singer/songwriter/pianist's approach is refreshingly instinctual, blending Connick's smooth virtuosity with a rugged, relaxed quality… DeSare covers old and newer pop and jazz standards without smothering or over-thinking the material. And on a few classic-style originals, he exhibits a similarly breezy charm as a tunesmith."
During the Fall cabaret season each of the cabaret performers will do an 8 p.m. show on Friday and Saturday - except for The Four Freshmen, which will perform Wednesday through Saturday, December 17-20.
During January through April 2009, the 8 p.m. shows will run Tuesday through Saturday, with a 10 p.m. late show on Friday and Saturday – except for Jack Jones (February 24 – March 7) who is not scheduled to perform any late shows.
