In 1992 Maurizio was discovered when he won the runner up prize on the popular TV show Star Search and began his professional career. It was then that he decided to change his singing style from Rock to Pop and his name to TONY OCEAN (from Frank Sinatra's portrayal of Danny Ocean in the movie Ocean's 11).
His career took a change when he did a Dean Martin impersonation at one of his shows. The owner was so impressed that he paired him with two other artists who impersonated Frank and Sammy Davis, Jr. and a show called 'The Pack Is Back' was born. They appeared to sellout crowds for eight months and earned the respect of critics and music lovers while performing at Piper's Alley, a well known Chicago nightclub.
In 1998 Tony was selected for the David Award for Top Performing Artist in entertainment by the Italo American National Union Foundation. The award is bestowed upon youthful people who exhibit the will to succeed, the vision to endure and the beauty within.
As one of the hardest working performers in the industry with 297 performances in 1999, Tony is expanding his career into national exposure and is presently under consideration by several producers and directors for parts in television and films.
Tony Ocean's upbeat style embodies a time from the past that will be popular as long as we still enjoy the music of Sinatra, Martin, Davis, Darin, Tony Bennett, Tom Jones and others whose romantic songs and lyrics have affected so many of our lives through the years.
In August of 2000 Tony will release his first original song Come On Out Tonight, it can be considered a pop ballad. With this song comes a change in Tony's musical direction. Recognizing he needs to find his own style and sound he is moving away from the Sinatra/Martin type sound to more of current pop and ballad sound.
No matter what Tony sings his songs will always make us feel that fairy tales can come true and they can happen to you if You're Young At Heart
