On behalf of my Family we offer our most sincere condolences on the passing of Tony, Tony was a friend of my dad, and everytime we played at the Guadalajara, Tony would always show up to all the Galaxia gigs , I cant remember a time he wasn't there for a show. He on occasion got up to sing with us, very bad vocals, but it was always fun. He loved to dance and was always chill at the shows. As a musician we always enjoy playing to people who appreciate our work. We will miss his Vibe!!!
