About Tony Messina
Tony Messina, a native Philadelphian, is a pop/jazz singer/songwriter and actor who's appeared in concerts from coast to coast and internationally at jazz festivals, theatres and nightclubs. Tony's amassed "sold-out" performances everywhere he's performed; recently at The Iridium Jazz Club, Kitano, and The Metropolitan Room in New York City, the Nantucket Theater Workshop in Nantucket, MA, The Cuillo Center for the Arts in Palm Beach, FL, The Invisible Theatre in Tucson, AZ, and at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills, CA. Peter Leavy of Cabaret Scenes Magazine noted, "The Metropolitan Room audience reveled in Messina's velvety-voiced emulation...an easy-going entertainer, comfortable with his audience, possessor of an admirable voice and a crowd-pleaser." A few years ago, Tony was invited to sing for Tony Bennett who was being honored by the Sons of Italy Organization. Messina caught the attention of Larry King and President Clinton who was in attendance. Tony has performed with such entertainment luminaries as Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Louie Bellson, David Letterman, Johnny Carson, Joan Rivers, Rodney Dangerfield, Merv Griffin, George Carlin, Alan Broadbent, Don Friedman and had worked for the "Chairman of the Board" himself, who was a major fan! After many recordings and performances while living in New York, Tony took a break from singing and moved to Hollywood, where he wrote and sold several screenplays that have yet to be produced. He also sharpened his acting skills for the big screen and television. Tony acted on "The Young and The Restless," "General Hospital" and in the Mel Brooks' films, "Life Stinks" and "History of the World" Messina's rich, warm voice allows him to mix meaningful renditions of selections from The Great American Songbook with original compositions. Tony wrote ten of the eleven songs on his "Soft Nights in Vegas" album. Tony has wowed listeners and reviewers alike. Labeled by Variety as "Dangerous, may be habit forming," while The New York Post regarded Tony as, "Excellent, not to miss." The San Francisco Chronicle claims "Tony owns the audience with each cascade of musical magic. Harrison Ford considers Tony to be "a great talent. Frank Sinatra proclaimed that "Tony is Dazzling." "Tony Messina Live" "This Is What I Am"

Messina knows them all, because for years he's played the club and concert scene all over the world with jazz groups and big bands.
Messina interprets lyrics like an instrumentalist. Standout standards include "Send In The Clowns," the uptempo "I Didn't Know What Time it Was" and Messina's Latin take on the Bacharach classic, "The Look Of Love. "He's also a proficient songwriter. Messina swings like nobody can on "Jazz'd" and "I Love You," and on the ballad, "Lifetimes," a sadness and longing for past love affairs comes across. In the humor department is the cool hip, fun/loving, "Mile High Club. Tony's song writing and innovative take on pop and jazz standards is fresh, unique and undeniably infectious. Messina's accompanied by Stan Kenton's Orchestra on "Send In The Clowns. TONY MESSINA ALBUM REVIEW 2012 A modern-day crooner, Tony Messina updates the great American Songbook and modernizes the middle-of-the-road classic pop tradition. His voice is warm, haunting and expressive, doing justice to the words that he interprets. On Pure Imagination, his sixth recording, Tony is joined by the core trio of pianist Father John D'Amico (who takes many concise solos), bassist Kenny Davis and drummer Gregory McDonald. Tony contributes eight originals in addition to reviving five offbeat standards, so Pure Imagination is full of both new material and rarities. Quite a few of the songs find Tony exploring the many sides of romance, particularly such numbers as the heartfelt love song "You Make It So Easy," "Island In The Sun," "Most Beautiful Girl," the good-natured "Just Your Friend," the yearning "Need Your Love," "I Don't Have A Clue" and the celebratory "I Have Love. The latter gives Tony an opportunity to salute jazz and to scat a bit. Throughout the set, Tony Messina (who is also responsible for the arrangements) is heard in top form, making Pure Imagination a joy for fans of the singer. TONY MESSINA - PURE IMAGINATION REVIEWS "Tony and his band have hit their stride with this one. Tony Messina loves the classic American songbook and is a crooner for the 21st century. But although he has performed a tribute to Dean Martin called The Dino Show and been praised by Frank Sinatra, he does not merely copy the past. Messina has his own sound, his musical personality is not dominated by any of his predecessors, and he even writes new material that fits in well with his shows. During this live show from New York's Iridium which is his fifth CD, Tony Messina is sympathetically accompanied by pianist Barry Levitt, bassist Chip Jackson and drummer Victor Jones. Particularly impressive is how Messina is able to come up with fresh statements on such familiar numbers as On Broadway (which he swings and scats on with enthusiasm), Georgia On My Mind, How High The Moon (a tribute to Ella but without Messina emulating her phrases) and On Green Dolphin Street. "Sanchez Concert Hall swinging out style with tunesmith Tony Messina" With his heart pinned full on both sleeves, Messina lets you know with his soft finger-clicking delivery that there is an immediate personal truth and recognition behind each lyric. His impeccable phrasing, silky style, effortless authenticity and genuine immediacy gathers his audience in a sort of hushed reverie. He's made it there and back and so can we. Messina who has shared stage with such luminaries as Lionel Hampton, Louie Bellson, Stan Kenton, and Alan Broadbent, brought his "Journey of Love" show to Pacifica with the blessings of many fans and friends throughout the world. President Clinton, Harrison Ford, Barbara Sinatra, and the Ambassador of Norway have made it clear with each sold out performance that Messina owns the crowd with each cascade of musical magic. Right from the start, Tony Messina delivered a nice little welcome from his own penned "It's A Loving World" onto Rodgers and Hart's "The Lady Is A Tramp," through Stephen Sondheim's "Sorry Grateful," Messina massaged our ears with a gentle little reminder that there is stardust all around us. Right from the start, Tony Messina delivered a nice little welcome from his own penned "It's A Loving World" onto Rodgers and Hart's "The Lady Is A Tramp," through Stephen Sondheim's "Sorry Grateful," Messina massaged our ears with a gentle little reminder that there is stardust all around us. Tony Messina made the women in tonight's audience sigh sweetly over the singer's obvious appreciation of thoroughly romantic grown-up love. Once upon a time there came a Valentine of song, and his name was Tony Messina. asks Tony Messina in the liner notes to his new album, This Is What I Am. While it may be the great phrasing of Sinatra or the feeling of Fitzgerald and Horn, Messina posits that there are vital associations between music and lyrics, singer and music as well as a necessary element of magic which truly make the difference between tunes and songs. Therefore, Messina claims, one must have a further connection with the music in order to bring out the best it has to offer. However, the true high points of this diverse and fulfilled album are Messina's own compositions. From the opening "Wonders Of The World"--a fresh cabaret-ish song about finding true, monumental love a bit later in life to the move-me-to-tears (yes, I admit it) title track of heartfelt lyrics wrapped in Messina's deep, souled voice and the more up (though no less meaningful) "It's A Loving World," Messina proves his talent on both sides of the staff. Still, Messina adds a freshness and energy often lost and laid stale in these great old standards. Though the term "classic" may be bandied about a bit too freely these days--describing everything from colas to computers to contemporary music--there seem to be certain elements which make a given thing truly "classic. In trying to find this elusive aspect, Tony Messina has done his best to keep these old torches burning bright while adding new sparks to the embers. With a respectful nod to those who made these songs great, Messina seems able to find the songs' inner secrets and build on them. In so doing, Messina has added his own fuel to the eternal flame of the "great songs" of our proud musical canon.

"The Metropolitan Room audience reveled in Messina's velvety-voiced emulation, and given the go-ahead, joined in singing "Volare," "That's Amore" and "Memories are Made of This" with unbridled gusto ... Messina is an easy-going entertainer, comfortable with his audience, possessor of an admirable voice and a crowd-pleaser ... "
"Tony Messina of the DINO show reaches out to his audience, brings them in, touches them and gives them a big hug. DINO is irresistible." Dick Robinson/WXEL Radio & Television, West Palm Beach, FL "DINO IS A MUST SEE for anyone who loves Dean Martin. Tony Messina sings Dino's greatest hits, tells Dean's funniest jokes and shares the highlights of Dean Martin's life. "Tony Messina's sold out DINO Show, A Tribute to Dean Martin, was sensational." Margrit Lynn, Palm Beach Today DINO - AUDIENCE RESPONSE CARDS "Tony Messina's DINO show was brilliant." "Tony Messina's DINO was amazing." "In the beginning of the DINO show, Tony Messina states that both he and DINO share the same Gemini astrological sign. Tony further stated that Gemini, the split personality sign, gives them a commonality. And so Tony splits and weaves back and forth, sometimes Tony, sometimes DINO. What great fun!" "Tony Messina gives you the heart and soul of Dean Martin." "Tony Messina's show DINO is like a movie and it's memorable." "To some extent Tony Messina channels Dean Martin and to a greater extent, Tony gives you the feeling that DINO is right there with you having fun like we all did many years ago." I loved Tony and I loved the show."
