Sy (age78) is excited to make a return appearance after regularly playing at the Anvil Club from 2005-2013.
He was classically trained as a youngster and along with his four siblings performed as a very young family at numerous venues including Baylor University. Sy barely touched a piano during his working years in the technology field. Pursuit of any public entertaining didn't begin until the mid- 1990's. He has performed at Elgin Country Club, Biltmore Country Club, many retirement homes and some private parties.
His music consists primarily of easy listening standards, show tunes and older songs.
Sy is looking forward to playing for your enjoyment.
Aloha Chicago Entertainment is a Chicago based entertainment firm founded by Chris Tuia’ana, an entrepreneur and entertainment professional.
History in Polynesian Entertainment
The son of an accomplished Polynesian musician and entertainer, Chris naturally became involved in entertainment as a child. From performing dances and playing music, to setting up and sound-checking equipment, Chris did it all.
Chris’s father, Herman Tapu Tuia’ana performed at world famous venues including the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii and Disney World’s’ Polynesian Village & Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Shortly after uprooting from Orlando to Chicago in the early 70’s, the Tuia’ana family quickly became active members of Chicagoland’s Polynesian community, performing at well-known Chicago hot-spots such as Shanghai Lil’s and Marriott’s Kona Kai restaurant.
Jeffrey Deutsch recently performed in Europe, aboard the number one cruise ship in the world, the Crystal Serenity, then at a jazz club in Paris, and then for two months at the elegant Kurhaus Hotel in Holland. When he's home in the Chicago area, he is a busy performer at private parties, corporate functions, and in the piano bars of major hotels. But the Anvil Club has been his "Gig Home" for almost two decades, and he's always happy to be back.
