To all our friends and fans:
Sadly we must inform you that our keyboard player, musical director, visionary and most of all our dear friend, Dennis O'Flaherty, passed away suddenly on Sunday. Services will be held Wednesday at
The Branch Funeral Home,
190 E Main St in Smithtown from 2-4PM and 7-9PM.
Though our hearts are broken, our spirit is not. And in the spirit of Dennis O'Flaherty "the show must go on". It is as he would want it and RapidFire is determined to be the best band we can be and over come this unfortunate tragedy.
So it is in his memory and his honor the we forge on. We will
celebrate his life and his passion for our vision this Friday at Molly Malone's. His spirit lives on in our hearts, minds and music.
Rest in peace Dennis.
It is our pleasure to be invited to perform for the
