Better Side of Me
'He Truly Has the Makings of a Star' igoshows.com 'He Has that Special Personality that exudes Magnetism and Warmth' CallBack Magazine 'The Real Deal' Las Vegas Sun 'I never thought I'd hear notes this high or this powerful come out of a man.' Connecticut Post Delisco is often described as a cross between Lenny Kravitz and Usher, bringing you piercing, powerful vocals, live band production, and undeniable stage presence. His soul sublime and frayed original music is where classic quality meets edgy rock and soul style. 'An iconoclastic performer with orgiastic energy,' Delisco emanates 'old school charisma that is noticeably missing in contemporary performances and in the market driven performers who sacrifice musical integrity for the quick record deal,' raves Erica Hector Vital. Delisco has the uncanny ability to rouse the crowd into dance and song and send them from the scene awed, ecstatic, and inspired. Delisco's most recent run of performances in Las Vegas is exemplary of his appeal to the mainstream audience, launched by his headlining debut at the Las Vegas Hilton, which opened to rave reviews, in September 2005. He made his television debut on the E! Network's reality series 'The Entertainer,' in the spring of 2005. Delisco won the title of "The Entertainer" after competing with nine other contestants from a pool of over 25,000. With his solo career on the rise, Delisco played to sold out audiences in Berlin, Germany, a testament to both the mystery & intrigue of Delisco, virtually an unknown to European audiences before he erupted onto the scene. His latest performances have included venues around the globe including Retox Rock Bar, Downtown Cabaret Theatre, Club Barcode, Chameleon Studios, and many others. Delisco is originally from Jacksonville, FL and continued to hone his craft in New York City. Formerly a principal in the Broadway hit Aida; Delisco has been described by Sir Elton John as 'great' and moved the late Peter Jennings to exclaim 'Man You Rock!' Delisco also starred on Broadway in 1997 in 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' playing the role of James. He was featured in the Broadway hit musical 'Ragtime' in 1998. Delisco appeared numerous times on New York's 92.7FM live radio show 'Munchamba Live,' performing his original music and poetry. Delisco's many achievements, however, are grounded in humble beginnings. Delisco uses his personal story to reach out to the next generation of children. His very first memories are of being traumatically abused and abandoned in the foster care system. Through mental, physical and emotional abuse, Delisco was forced not to speak or cry until he was five years old. Such abuse left him close to death, at which time, Delisco's Grandmother, generous far beyond her means, gave him a home. He discovered the power of his voice when he sang for the first time in the fourth grade talent show, where no eye was without a tear. Delisco realized singing was his outlet to overcome his destitute life. However, it was a live charity concert by Michael Jackson that inspired him to set the goals necessary to achieve his dream of becoming the ultimate entertainer. Now Delisco sets forth his music and life story as an inspiration for others who have been through similar hardships. Delisco's Lil' Angel Project was formed to encourage students through artistic presentations, using life experience to educate, relate, and heal, children are given tools for creative development to find an imaginative outlet of their own. Having seen his share of success on the Broadway stage, clubs, radio, and now television, his current goal is to achieve additional success as an original recording artist. Delisco's debut single, the LA Music Award Nominated, 'better side of me...', was released in October 2006, and recently went #1 on Engage Internet Radio. His self-titled full-length album just dropped on January 25th, and hit #9 on the charts in Boston in it's first week, with college radio play continuing to grow all over the nation. Through his innovative new music style, electrifying vocal ability, inspirational lyrics, and thrilling performance skills, Delisco is just in time to ring in a new era of artistic ingenuity for the 21st Century. Finally, Delisco believes deep within his heart that if he can live his dreams and make them come true, so can you.
