2nd Annual DeVille Memorial pic/vid reviews

Anne Raso: `I had a great time. Great to see Louie, Ruben, Bobby and Manfred back together and then of course, Willy's more recent bands played in different configurations.' More pics by Anne Raso. Thanks a lot Anne!

Joseph Vasta: 'We had a great time, thanks to David Keys. This would have never happen, he's the gas for the engine here! So I thank David for all hes done plus his wife too, what a doll. Love to the minkers!! Thanks for being there all those years, hope you are doing fine. Be good.' - Joey V jr -

  3. You are SO right Louie! I gues the NYC0831 line-up is complete now. Let's print new posters! ;-)

  4. it's hard to go see Mink DeVille without Willy, last year it was almost impossible, I kept telling my friend marieangela come on lets go and not see Willy, Willy was a friend and my FAVORITE singer ever,last year I sat down at BB Kings and cried when the band began to play, this year I was SO happy the band was still there representing WILLY, when all is said and done this is GREAT, SOULFUL, HEARTFELT, SEXY, REAL MUSIC and we have to keep pushing and keeping Willy and his music both original and interpretive ALIVE...thank you everyone who's out there doing it and most of all thank you to ALL of the musicians who came together last year and this year it's a BIG F---IN DEAL! love you all.
