Born and raised in New York, Tony Antonucci has called Kansas City home since he was a teenager. His east coast upbringing inspired Tony, who today is a nightclub entertainer reminiscent of the days of the “Rat Pack”, performing the hits of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Neil Diamond and a host of other memorable artists. His love for the standards started as a child.
“I grew up listening to this stuff; it was all my parents played. Every time I take the mike and start my show it just brings back a time that was so much fun and relaxed… kinda cool,” says Tony.
That probably explains why he draws such a diverse age group at his shows. There are young people who want to experience true lounge-style entertainment, and there are those who are from that generation who enjoy being transported back in time.
