Long before Brothers Willie Apo and Pete Decena entered, passed and raised as Master Masons, both have been serving their community in Staten Island by playing as a band with other close friends spreading the universal language of music for free.
Asked why they do this, Bro. Pete said that it is their way of expressing their desire to share their love of music and to bring a little sunshine to those who might be in the sunset of their years. Bro. Willie also intimates that whenever they played, especially the good old familiar love songs, many of their listeners shed a tear or two…”brings back memories of yester years” he adds They made their initial appearance in the Lodge during WB Luis Guilllen’s Public Installation. They are two of the four “New Kids on the Block”.
