Mike ZerbeFrankie Moreno and Russ Letizia to Join Air Supply

In mid 2008, after five years with Air Supply, drummer Mike Zerbe left Air Supply and joined the Frankie Moreno Band in his hometown of Las Vegas.

After a short absence, Mike re-joined Air Supply and much to the delight of his family, friends and fans, was doing double duty as the drummer for both Air Supply and the Frankie Moreno Band.

Change is often quick when it comes to Air Supply and the latest news is that half of the Frankie Moreno Band will become half of Air Supply, at least for the month of February.

Mike Zerbe along with pianist Frankie Moreno and guitarist Russ Letizia will be bringing a bit of flair to Air Supply come February. In fact, the changes may start a little earlier than that when Russ Letizia joins Air Supply on the road as the new guitarist, perhaps as early as late January.
