With a background in both theater and music, Don Disantis has combined the two to present musical variety shows to enthusiastic audiences across northern Ohio. A former male vocalist for the Harry Hershey Orchestra, Don now has his own group of talented musicians, and continues to please audiences with his Sinatra, “Rat Pack” baritone style.
The number of musicians Don can have available range from the basic piano, bass and drums, with Don on vocals, to one including a sax, trumpet, guitar, a female vocalist, or any combination of those musicians. The versatile range of the group allows the client to fit the size to their need or budget. That versatility also enables The Don Disantis Orchestra to be suitable for weddings, private parties, nightclubs and all your entertainment needs.
On the theatrical side, Don has played, among others, such rolls as Alfie Doolittle in “My Fair Lady,” Don Quixote in “Man of La Mancha,” and his favorite, King Arthur in “Camelot.” With a blend of the great standard songs of Sinatra, Martin and others, along with Broadway show stoppers and a little bit of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the demand for Don Disantis continues to grow. His audience-friendly style and polished stage presence insures an entertaining evening for all.

The Don Disantis Band was absolutely wonderful! They were very personable, kind, and fun and they even learned two new songs just for our wedding reception. What a macial night we had – a dream wedding reception due largely in part to the band.Aaron and Erin (Clark) MosierMay 27, 2006Camden Falls
Don Disantis and his band were exceptional. Many of our guests commented on Dons wonderful voice and what a refreshing change it was from the ‘normal’ wedding music. As far as the bride & groom, we thought Don was one of the reasons our wedding was so fun and memorable. Don was professional, funny, engaging and just a delight.David MintzMay 1, 2006
