Dear Fans of Sonora’s Black Irish Band-

As many of you have heard by now, we lost my best friend and fellow band mate Richard Restivo. One of Richard’s requests was for the band to continue on in the future, which we will.

Richard wanted his multitalented son, Dominic, to continue the legacy and take over the bass. Dominic performed on the bands 25th album release,“Give us all yer whiskey”, and knows all the bands music. Richard took the time out to write out all the parts for his son to perform.
We hope to have Dominic with the band singing and performing on stand-up bass starting in June.

The band and myself will miss our Italian brother Richard very much, it will be nice however to know that his spirit will be carried forward.

Italian and Irish Forever!
