Our friend Al passed away at the end of August, 2013. Al was an incredible gentleman, who always had a kind and encouraging word for the StingRays and the individuals in the band. Since the early days of the StingRays, Al, his wife Eileen, and often the grown children and nieces would ignite the night with their dancing and good wishes. We wish we had an opportunity return the compliment he would give us, "this is a real good night for this place and it's because of you."
