Once shy, crooner Cerbo making it big

January 8, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Call Tony Cerbo the very definition of enigma.
As a painfully shy teen, he abhorred being in the limelight and wasn't attracted to music, especially singing.
Nowadays, he revels in belting out tunes made famous by Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble before sizable crowds at restaurants, clubs, weddings and receptions throughout southeastern New England.
In fact, back on Dec. 15, this self-described “self-made crooner” starred in his fourth annual “Home for Christmas Dinner Show” at the B. Pinelli's Restaurant ballroom in East Providence, and claimed he had “a blast” doing it.
