Tony, Michelle and their sons, Daniel and Jacob, moved to Naples in the summer of 2013 after deciding they were not fans of the cold weather in Connecticut. They made several exploratory trips south and finally settled on Naples as their new hometown.
Both Michelle and Tony have had life-long love affairs with music. Tony started organ lesson at the tender of age of 8 and eventually taught himself to play keyboards and piano also. He played the organ for his church at 13 and played with various bands in his teens. He spent many years performing with the local Passion Play, starting with playing in the band and then becoming the band director. It was during this time he met Michelle.
Michelle started performing musically and theatrically at the age of 12 and had the opportunity to perform Off-Broadway. She and her father, a guitarist, formed a band that played for weddings and local events. When she portrayed the Blessed Mother Mary in the Passion Play, she and Tony recognized one another’s talents almost immediately. She invited him to join her band and the rest is history!
The Falco family is thrilled to join the Mayflower family and staff. After exploring several churches’ services and styles for the last two or three years they are happy to settle in a place they can call “home.”
