Vincent Varrassi

Facebook

Originally from New York City, Vincent has been performing since he was 16 years old. His band, A Touch of Class performed for many years at corporate banquets, weddings and clubs and restaurants in New York and northern New Jersey. Featuring four strong vocalists, the late Alto Saxophonist Ken Cicerale, and a strong rhythm section, the band performed great dance music ranging from American Standards, to contemporary hits.

Varrassi moved to DE and continued performing his piano and vocals as a soloist, and occasionally with former bandmate Ken Cicerale on Alto. When Ken followed and settled in Sussex, they formed the original 5th Avenue trio with Ken Schleifer on drums. Varrassi has performed many times at the Milton Theatre as well as many local clubs and restaurants such as the Cultured Pearl, The Bluecoast Grille, and the former Cuvee Ray Wine Bar in Rehoboth. He is most regarded for his piano and vocal performances of the musical from The Great American Songbook.
