FZL in 2013

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are well and hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving! First and foremost, I want to thank you all for the incredible outpouring of support you have given to me over the past 3+ months. Whenever you hear about something tragic like this, you never think it is going to hit this close to home. Again, THANK YOU for your friendship and support.

Ron and I started FunZaLuv almost 7 years ago. Over that time, we steadily built up an incredible base of friends that helped make each and every one of our performances memorable. We were incredulous and grateful at the same time at the success we were able to realize. Many have asked if I am going to continue on. Until recently, I did not know the answer to that question. After a lot of soul searching. I can tell you, I am going to continue.

I have partnered up with lifelong friend, Scott Kinka, to continue the wonderful band Ron Rotelli and I worked so hard to create. Roughly 24 years ago, Scott and I formed the band Split Decision, a band that is still around today and as popular as ever. Scott, who was also a friend to Ron, partnered up with me on Ron's Tribute Night. Those of you who were fortunate enough to get a ticket know that he did an incredible job that -I'm certain- Ron was proud of. Scott is an incredible talent, showman, and person. Together, I am certain we will be able to bring the brand of fun you all have come to know from FunZaLuv, --lots of singin', dancin', and awesome memories.

In 2011, FunZaLuv was ranked #4 on the Philly HotList, -not bad since there were over 80 bands nominated. In August, 2012, we were well on our way to 1st place on the HotList. With Ron's passing, we did not quite make it, we finished 6th. In 2013, we're gonna take care of that "unfinished business" when the contest kicks off in July ;-)

Mark your calendars because we are going to kick things off on January 19th, 2013 at Da'Vinci's in Collegeville. From there, you will be able to see us at our usual venues: MaGerks, Mollys, the Village, Duffers, Tir Na Nog, and -of course- LaCosta in the Summer :-)

We're still populating the calendar, but you can see what we have lined up thus far on the website: www.FunZaLuv.com

Again, thank you for your friendship, support, and Luv :-) Stay well; Stay safe; and PLEASE hug your loved ones.

Yours Truly,
