“Hi Phil, So sorry for the delay! I meant to send you some comments that you can post on your website a while ago. Here you go: “We first met Phil and the Tony Ocean Show when we were out to dinner, not specifically “searching” for a wedding band. As soon as Tony began singing, our jaws dropped and we knew they were unlike any group we had ever heard. Phil was amazing to work with – upbeat, positive and open to taking suggestions along the way and the total package of the group can’t be beat. The whole wedding was up on the dance floor and we can’t thank Phil, Tony and the entire band enough. Our friends and family are still talking about the night..and my husband won’t stop talking about how fun it was when the band let him sing with them :) Thank you for the memories and for helping to create the best night of our lives!!!” Lincoln Park conservatory 2013 -Regan and Matt Wedding”

““These days, my show isn’t just about the Rat Pack,” Ocean said. “It’s more pop, more Motown, more rock, a little Rod Stewart, a little Joe Cocker, even a little disco — just more variety. We’re also trying to come up with our own material, which is real cool. The first part of the show, I usually stick to the Sinatra/Dean Martin stuff, but then we open things up more. We get a little crazy later in the evening. We tear it up a little bit. “We’re not getting too far away from where my roots are, but we’re reaching new fans because we’re bringing in a different vibe — and people have been loving it. We’re trying to get the message out: I’m not just the Rat Pack guy. There’s a lot more to the Tony Ocean show.” ”

“The release of Ocean's new CD "Me and Mrs Jones" signals another transformation by this multi-faceted entertainer. Gone are the standards made famous by old masters as Ocean shows his range by taking on slow-tempo soulful songs as well as some tunes penned by a roster of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers including Van Morrison and Robbie Robertson. There are also a few standout collaborations with notable singers like Joyce "Peaches" Faison on "I Want Your Love" and jazz performer Angel Spiccia on the old Bread song, "If."”

"I just had to check out his music after knowing about it being Jazz. After hearing a few of his songs, this crooner is pretty good! I like his song “I want your love” the best. That song is just marvelous, filled with love and romance. And the piano play was great! A very great combination of vocals and instruments."

“-It should be illegal to play this song unless your sitting in your favorite recliner with a glass of wine and not a worry in the world...”

Brad Zerbo

“If Tony Ocean can deliver these kind of vocals - I look forward to an original tune that will set him ... not only apart ... but above a crowd of wannabees”

“So smoothe and calming, placid and romantic.”

“Tony gives a very passionate delivery, ...the instrumentation was excellent, in particular the piano player did a great job... ”

“Tony is a Great singer. Wonderful jazzy music with soul I love this video !!"”
