No one enjoys working like Tony Bennett does. The American music icon drew an amazingly diverse crowd to San Antonio's Municipal Auditorium not long ago — all ages seem mesmerized by his beaming, exuberant, stage presence that radiates the pleasure he takes in the crowd and in performing.
Standing ovations are the standard audience response from start to finish — Bennett walks on stage to the adulation of a crowd on its feet and returns for multiple encores. His voice still fills the room with its range. And no one can offer a history lesson in American music like Bennettt, with his anecdotes featuring Frank Sinatra, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and a string of notable names:"Bob Hope gave me my name, Tony Bennett;" "Rosemary Clooney and I were the first American Idols;" "This is Count Basie's favorite drummer." Tony Bennett is THE music man.
