Where the Pros Play
Tony Barton has a beautiful baritenor voice – dark and rich in the lower range, bright and free on the top. But voice is only part of a great performance. When talking to Barton, I heard a refreshing perspective....
“Sharp Dressed Man” is an eclectic mix of swing, rockabilly, opera, Elvis – all the things Barton loves. He modifies it for events such as weddings and reunions, creating a tailor-made celebration.

"Not only is he one of the more experienced musicians that has taken the local stage, he captured Frank Sinatra so accurately that I went away from the show feeling like I knew so much more about the man
than when I went in."...
