Remembering River Town Saints bassist Daniel Di Giacomo
Our friends in River Town Saints are mourning the loss of one of their best friends and their bass player. In a Facebook post, the band announced the sudden loss of Daniel Di Giacomo:
I had the pleasure of hanging with Dan on many occasions over the last year, from a studio session at Trench Recordings to the Cavendish Music Festival. Bottom line; he was always a blast to be around and as you can tell from this photo at Cavendish, he was ALWAYS making those around him smile. Remembering the good times over here…Rest in Peace Dan. You will be so missed.
