Main Street Station is hosting a life celebration & benefit, Sunday February 12, 2012, called “All That Jazz”, from Noon til 10pm. Jazz musicians who have worked with Tony will be performing and raising dollars. Main Street Station is donating 20% of their proceeds for the whole day, in addition to collecting donations for The Tony D’Anna “All That Jazz” Fund. This will be an exceptional musical showcase and a wonderful gathering of Tony’s tribe of fans, not be missed.
Tony was fond of saying “I am sure glad my mother made me take piano lessons”, and are we all glad too. Tony has been playing for so many of us, the dance classes at Sonoma State University, shows at Cinnabar Theater and Santa Rosa…. Junior College, gigs all over the place with his trio, services for the synagogue in Cotati, occasional services at Metropolitan Community Church and accompanist to many, many singers and players, including many who have performed with him at Main Street Station. Tony was loved by his family, many friends, fans, the music and theater community. He is already dearly missed.
