Chef Duanio has charmed and wowed L.A.'s music lovers ever since his first appearance in concert, vocalizing for the 7 piece Italian combo, the Swinging Armani's, in 2011 and onward.
Combining a fully trained romantic baritone tenor with crooning mastery in the style of Dean Martin, Como, and Sinatra, with some Mario Lanza or Andrea Bocelli when called for, Chef Duanio's hosting and comedic skills have made him an on demand artist for prestigious gatherings, large and small.
From following Frank Stallone at the Jimmy Kimmel stage, for the nationally broadcast San Gennaro Festival, to the singing of the National anthem at public events, to regular and special guest appearances at L.A. Club venues like Barone's, the Smokehouse, JAX of Glendale, and the Alvas Theater of San Pedro, Duanio has brought fun, laughter, and musical beauty to highly appreciative audience for the past three years.
The brainchild of singer, promoter, and sometimes Shakespearean actor Duane Thorin, the Chef is a wonderful nostalgic composite of all we love best of the great songs and crooners of a certain romantic era of popular music when the song was king, romance was the thing, and love was in the air.
To heighten the delight and memories with a Latin touch Chef Duanio sings and phrases in Italian, Espanol, and a bit of French during his shows. Hear Arriva Derci Roma, Santa Lucia, as well as Sway, Besame Mucho, Volare, that's Amore, in their full entertaining glory, as you truly enjoy a Bella Notte.
