Joe Andolino, who plays keyboard, lost his wife Dr. Alissa (Cucci) Andolino on June 7th when she lost her  courageous battle with cancer at the age of 39.  She leaves behind her husband and two children, Giancarlo age 5 and Arabella age 3.  Alissa, a graduate of the Jefferson Township High School, was a daughter, sister, friend, wife, and mother and also an OB/GYN devoted to her patients.  Even through difficult chemo treatments and experimental medicines, she persevered and stayed positive, focusing on the time she was spending NOW rather than what she might be missing later with her family and creating beautiful memories with her two small children.

Alissa was Joe's number one fan of his band Theatre Rock, and the concert will be dedicated ot her memory so come join us to celebrate in her honor right here in her hometown. She would want it no other way, since the show must go on.
