Message from Rico Monaco:  RE: Tragedy In Orlando
I was asked by my friend Rosario Poma (owner of Pulse Nightclub with his wonderful wife Barbara) to headline the benefit on June 23, 2o16 for the victims of the Pulse Latin Night disgusting attack on June 12, 2016. I pray that the music we deliver will help the victims families and friends in some small way. I only want to help my friend, the victims, our city, and do my part WITHOUT getting involved in politics, ideology, or religious beliefs. This is about human beings lives, love, peace and compassion.  This is the least we as musicians could do for the people and our city.
