Tony Rosales Tony Rosales

Composer and jazz pianist, Tony Rosales, grew up in Long Island, New York. Influenced by some of the great jazz pianists of the day, and possessed by Oscar Peterson's sound, he began to make a name for himself, developing his own stayle as a musical savant. As a teenager and then as young man he performed as a solo pianist and was a crowd pleaser at the best restaurants in the greater New York Metropolitan Area. In 1995, Mr. Rosales moved to the Grand Strand district of South Carolina where he continued to cultivate his sound and where he honed his talent. In 1983 and 1984, he opened for The Dave Brubeck Quartet at the Jazz Festival in Oyster Bay, New York. From 1995 to 1998, he was solo jazz pianist at the Myrtle Beach Hilton Hotel. For the past eight years Mr. Rosales has been playing at numerous country clubs and restaurants throughout the Carolina’s. Number one ranked golfer Greg Norman recognized Rosales' genius and featured Rosales at the opening of his restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Norman has continued to support Mr. Rosales, featuring his talent at his private golf parties. Rosales maintains his long association with the Martini family, proprietors of the most popular jazz and piano bar, the Midtown Bistro in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where he plays jazz piano six nights a week.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
