RIP Dan Tomassini

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of Dan Tomassini. If you have been to any local live music show over the course of the last couple decades there is an eighty to ninety percent chance that Dan was there, either playing drums, bass, or as a member of the audience. He was the epitome of the local live music fan, and a wonderful, kind- hearted human being. He was always quick with a warm clasp on the shoulder, generous words, and a big, wide smile. If there is a God in Heaven I can understand why he’d want to surround himself with people like Dan, but frankly we could use a lot more of them down here.
