Dance, sip a martini and “chill” with one of the country’s hottest young singer/pianists. Described as romantic, swinging and sensual, what sets DeSare apart is his ability to write original material that sounds fresh and at the same time blends seamlessly with the Great American Songbook. He glides from George Gershwin to Bob Dylan or Phil Collins, to one of his inventive original songs with ease.

See him perform this Satruday, at 8p.m. at the Tickets are $25.
