I probably saw Patroni everyday for a solid three years at Harlows and at least a couple times a month after that. It didn't matter if he was dealing with some overly demanding tour manager or DJ VicToza requesting he help him connect his iPhone to a dozen 15" subs at 9:58 on a Friday night, John would always take a moment to be the nicest most sincere person to me immediately followed up with a sarcastic "how about those Angels" comment (that he somehow learned how to text me weekly!) Between all the great stories he would tell me about his younger days in the music biz and the jokes about whoever that days bartender was, Patroni would always tell me how lucky he was to still be here after all he had been through and even got to marry his best friend and favorite chef. You're the man Patroni!
