TONY VIVIANO A MAN WHO CAN SELL A SONG
Tony Viviano is a man who can sell a song. He can sing with true feeling, as he was taught by the best in the business, Tony Bennett. He was awarded with the honor of The Best of St. Louis’ Entertainer and Lounge Act by The Riverfront Times 2003.
One of St. Louis’s most ambitious and versatile performers of the last 30 some odd years, and has the self assurance to prove it. Tony is a very marketable talent. He deserves a wider audience. He custom tailors his performance for your special occasion.
He always has the right musicians and female vocalist for the repertoire of each event.
People of all ages appreciate Tony’s music. Tony offers more. From peppy cocktail music, to soft sophisticated romantic dinner music, to keeping the crowd always on their feet dancing the night away. Viviano pays attention to detail. He and his band set the mood and create an atmosphere of fun.
He is ubiquitous in St. Louis. Viviano comes highly recommended by many major corporate clients and is known to thrill audiences at community parks, college concerts, to weddings and rehearsals, Italian events, fundraisers, festivals, restaurants / night clubs, dances and special events of all kinds.
Many think of him as someone who does tributes to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin and Louis Prima. But he entertains the younger set and all generations with many weddings and private engagements.
According to Charley Brennen of KMOX radio 1120 a.m. St. Louis. “Tony Viviano sounds more like Tony Bennett than Tony Bennett, and Tony can sing any song be it Jazz, Swing, Rock n’ Roll, Mo-Town, Disco, Island Music, Blues, Folk, Country and anything else he wants ’cause he can do it all - and he does it very well.”
Another quote from Don Wolff who announces many Jazz concerts said “Tony Viviano and Tony Bennett sound so much alike that they must have got their voices at the same city in Italy”.
If you want to know about how much a real entertainer loves to bring his performance to the stage more than anyone, you must see the Tony Viviano Show, a thoroughly enjoyable evening!
Tony was born to entertain. He has determination and most of all perseverance to put together the right combination of tunes that create the right mood for a successful show performance.
Beginning at age five he overheard and learned two unique styles of music coming from his family living room. First was from his older brother Joe who would be singing songs with the record player (Victorola) while swinging his arms to the smooth sounds of the great Frank Sinatra. To cool!!!
Second was from his next oldest brother Sal who would be singing songs of the then current
generation of Rock n’ Roll Artist’s like Jerry Lee Lewis, Fat’s Domino, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Ricky Nelson. To much fun!!! But these were just stepping stones to the many songs that Tony still brings to the microphone today.
Viviano is a showman who connects with his audience. His forte is solid entertainment and his show is very well paced with humor.
We are fortunate that we don’t have to travel to Las Vegas or the East Coast to see this quality of entertainment, when we can see it right here.
