The articles below orginally appeared on the FM website leading up to the NEARFest 2006 performance.
FM will appear in concert at the North East Art Rock Festival, NEARfest in the early summer of 2006, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
FM's newest member is Claudio Vena. Born in Italy and now living in Canada, Claudio is an internationally reknown conductor, composer and recording artist. Claudio's exceptional performance skills on viola and mandolin adds a new dimension to the FM sound.
When FM decided to accept Rob LaDuca’s invitation to play NEARfest 2006, I was very sure of one thing – that when it came to the keyboards, the only thing vintage onstage would be me!
