With a heavy heart and tears in his eyes, my husband, Paul informed me last week that our dear friend, Tony Falco had died. We knew Tony had been struggling with complications with Covid-19 for the past 6 months, but the news of Tony’s passing hit us hard. We, among countless others, are heartbroken over the news of Tony’s passing. We have been deeply touched by Tony and the generous, humble integrity he lived by. Tony created and ran the incredible music venue “The Falcon”, in Marlboro, NY and for the past 10 years, Paul has been playing there regularly with the Ed Palermo Big Band. It was only fitting that Tony’s wife, Julie and their children: Julian, Lana, Adrianne and Lee hosted a Memorial Celebration for Tony at “The Falcon” this past weekend. A long, diverse list of musicians performed throughout the weekend on the outside deck, with the gorgeous waterfall flowing behind them. Hundreds of people showed up on Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the music, connect with his family and celebrate Tony’s extraordinary life. Today, we are re-releasing my July 2019 conversation with Tony as a remembrance and tribute to him. So whether you heard it when it was first released or hearing it for the first time, we invite you to get a glimpse of Tony’s heart, vision and profound impact he had on musicians, artists and the wide Falcon fan-base. We are so grateful to have this recording which allows us to hear his voice once again. We thank you, Tony, we will miss you terribly. Rest easy, dear friend, rest in deep peace.
