David & Jo Marzetti – Raleigh, NC – March 2009

Josephine Palazzo Marzetti passed away on September 25, 2013 and her family has chosen the DLM Trust as the recipient of memorial contributions in her name. The Trust is deeply honored to be selected and as a teacher herself, and frequent donor, we think she would approve. Jo would have been 95 in December, and other than her failing eye sight, she was very healthy and active up until the end! The picture below of her in a wheelchair at the beach was taken the week before she passed. She had an ambitious bucket list, and managed to get through most all of it by her strength, faith, fortitude and love of life, friends and family. She was a friend and inspiration to all who crossed her path, and her smiling face and kind words will be missed by all. Rest in peace dear Jo!

Young Cardinals, the group formerly known as Sleep Control, that David poured his heart and soul into, needs your help to fund their debut album! In just a few days they have raised over $1500 of the $2300 needed to record and distribute their new album. They have set up a campaign on KickStarter to raise funds, and I know the band would really appreciate all the support they can get to help keep David’s dream alive!

Over the past year and a half we have been working hard to write and perfect a ton of new material. Some of you have had the opportunity to hear our new stuff live, but it’s time to get back in the studio and release it to everyone! We are confident that all of our new songs are light years above our old recordings and with the help of our friend and recording genius Tooch at Sound Write Recording Studios in Raleigh we know that you will all be as excited about the final product as we are. This next album is key in launching our upcoming tours and getting us to the next level. We can’t thank our fans, family and friends enough and look forward to bringing you some dirty, epic rock & roll!

You can check out the project here and make a donation if you’d like, or simply follow the progress. Listen to the Young Cardinals first EP on Sound Cloud
