    When I went to see Tony Orlando a year ago I realized it was the wonderful Fredrico’s clan who were instrumental in putting on this absolutely fun/superb show. Then a few months ago I had my first Fredrico’s dinner experience at a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for My Sister’s Closet. I would love to go back with a date and dance the night away to to finely sung tunes of the owner himself. How nice is that? 🙂
