George Bugatti, 48, is an American singer/pianist and songwriter, with three CD's in wide release. Tonight Show creator Steve Allen produced the first CD. The second CD was recorded live at Bellagio Las Vegas on Paul Anka Productions.
Nigel Wright (Executive music producer of American Idol and Warner Bros. Phantom of the Opera) produced the third CD. It was distributed by Universal.
Discovered while performing at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills by Steve Allen, Bugatti was quickly singled out to be the prolific comedian's protégé.
Shortly after recording his first CD with Steve Allen, Bugatti made his concert debut in Los Angeles with the legendary singer Tony Bennett.
In an unprecedented gesture, Bennett invited Bugatti to perform with him at the Thousand Oaks Civic Auditorium. Bugatti started studying music at the age of 5 and attended the prestigious High School of the Performing Arts in New York, followed by the highly competitive Julliard School, where he honed his skills as a classical pianist, for a short time, before tragedy befell the budding classical pianist. In an accident, the median nerve of his right hand was severed causing the almost complete loss of all movement and sensitivity in his right hand. He was told he would never play again.
Apparent that his career as a classical pianist was over, George decided to leave NY. He took up residence on a cruise ship where he tirelessly worked at rehabilitating his hand and discovered a new hidden talent; His voice. George moved to Los Angeles and quickly landed the coveted entertainer’s chair at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills where he was dubbed the “West Coast equivalent to the New York Carlyle Hotel’s Bobby Short” according to Los Angeles Magazine.
Bugatti performed there for seven years from the grand opening in 1991 to 1998, meeting and playing for countless celebrities and dignitaries. It was there, that George first met Steve Allen. Not only did Allen produce a CD for him, but also invited Bugatti to appear in the stage version of the original "Tonight Show" with original cast members Jonathan Winters, Louie Nye, and Bill Dana at venues including the House of Blues in Los Angeles and Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.
In 1998, Steve Wynn, another Peninsula guest and Bugatti fan, invited Bugatti along with Michael Feinstein and John Pizzerelli, to open Wynn's Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas.
After two years as a featured performer at Bellagio, George recorded “Bugatti Live on the Strip” which was released in 2000 on Paul Anka Productions, Paul Anka’s record label.
Anka also offered to produce and spearhead Bugatti’s career. Unable to finance the $500K needed for recording, marketing, advertising and press, George lost the offer to singer Michael Buble.

An exotic melody accompanies a desert caravan moving beneath a blazing sun. The sound of waves wash against a pristine South American beach. A lone flamenco guitar echoes through the cobbled streets of old Sevilla. And a lilting three quarter time rhythm conjures images of the rolling green hills of Ireland. The music is cinema. It is sound given shape and color. This is the music of Incendio.
