THE WILDFIRE BAND: THE GENESIS
The Wildfire Band is the loving “refiring” of the beloved BlueFire Band. The BlueFire Band, with core members Randi Fishenfeld, Richard Velasquez, Nick Cucunato, and Michael Waxman (joined 2007) had been performing and wowing audiences throughout South Florida for 18 years. Jeffrey Lafferty, drummer, joined the band as a permanent member in 2013. Because of the amazing chemistry and musicianship of its members, BlueFire garnered a huge loyal and adoring fan base. The band was built on love and respect for its members and following.
As the saying goes, “Nothing lasts forever.” Lives change – circumstances change. Nick reached a time in his life where he felt he wanted to retire and Rich accepted a wonderful job-offer in Boston. We accept these changes with open minds and hearts and wish everyone (including those of us remaining) success. There are no bad feelings, only love.
HENCE, the “refiring”! Jeffrey, Michael and I have decided to run with the opportunity to create a new and exciting project called THE WILDFIRE BAND. We added two amazing musicians: Stevan Carter (guitar/vocals), and John Falcone (bass/vocals). These beautiful musicians were selected because of their passion and talent. We fit like a glove!
SO here’s to the wonders and thrills to come :-)! Here’s to The WILDFIRE BAND!
