Send Your Thoughts & Prayers To Simone Felice
June 2nd at 7:13pm

Hello our beloved friends and fans,

We must tell you all, with a heaviness we cannot convey of the news that our dearest brother Simone Felice has been scheduled for emergency open-heart surgery as a result of Aortic Stenosis. The operation will take place tomorrow at Albany Medical Center. We are devastated, yet hopeful that he will pull through. We will not be playing Mountain Jam and all dates for June and July have been cancelled.
He loves you all more than you could ever know, so please send all of your thoughts & prayers Simone's way.
We will keep you informed of his condition in the coming days.

Love always & forever,

Simi Stone
Bobby Bird
Nowell Haskins

The surgery was this morning. Get well soon Simone!

Simone, also an author, left the Felice Brothers to form the The Duke & the King. He is still scheduled to play a solo show at City Winery with Nicole Atkins on August 7th.

The Felice Brothers are currently on tour with Dave Matthews and will be keeping busy playing shows all summer. All dates below...
