Diane and Rob Mello of Arlington MA are pleased to announce a re-branding from DianeAndRob.com to Mello-Family.com, effective immediately. "We felt that the DianeAndRob.com branding was not aligned with our plans for future growth" stated Diane Mello, Chief Household Officer and Managing Director of Human Resources. "With our headcount projected to increase more than 33% over the next seven months, we needed a domain name that was less restrictive."
When asked to comment, Chief Entertainment Officer and Vice President of Marketing Rob Mello babbled incoherently for a while before stating "While I was involved in the initial planning, Mrs. Mello will be tasked with the next phase of the project which will involve a rigorous on-boarding process for the new member of the organization." Mr. Mello added "Initial training is planned after their arrival slated for mid-March."
Founded in October of 2007, Mello-Family.com is an equal opportunity organization and does not discriminate on eye color, height or musical ability.
Boston lead singer Brad Delp passed away this week. My brother Rich met Brad and had him and his fellow band members autograph a CD for me – a real treasure.
Boston was my first "favorite" band, and I was lucky enough to see them on their third stage tour at the Worcester Centrum in August of 1987. (The band sold out ten dates in Worcester!)
Boston had the best selling debut album with over 17 million copies sold until another Boston-based band, New Kids on the Block, assumed that distinction.
I also had the pleasure of working with Jim Masdea (Boston’s original drummer who played on “More than a Feeling and performed with the band on the Third Stage tour) when I was a sound engineer for Showtime Sound in Westport, MA in the early 90’s. One of my most memorable experiences was providing sound reinforcement for a boxing-match at the New Bedford armory with Jim.
Brad’s last performance as the lead singer for Boston was on Nov.13.2006 at Boston Symphony Hall in a concert honoring Doug Flutie.
