Avi Wisnia's smooth vocals and breezy style pay homage to classic crooners and entertainers, while his dynamic piano skills and arrangements assure you that this is truly something new. This engaging singer, songwriter and storyteller has performed in prestigious venues around the world: from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., to concerts in Warsaw, Poland, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is the winner of several awards and was most recently named Musician of the Year by Bucks Happening Magazine, and Outstanding Keyboard Player of the Year at the Montgomery-Bucks Music Awards in Pennsylvania. Avi has performed alongside artists such as Tony Orlando, Arturo Sandoval, The Roots, and Maroon 5, and he has given a TED talk about “The Nature and Nurture of Bossa Nova.”


"Philly native Avi Wisnia plays his own compositions reminiscent of a Brazilian Bossa Nova. Add in his soothing vocals and poetic lyrics and you’ve got something you’ve never heard before."

Helen Leicht, (88.5 WXPN)
