The name “WildeFire” was inspired by Michael Martin Murphey. We love the song and we love the person. We performed with Michael in June of 2013 which was a great honor and look forward to working with him again. We hope you like our new look. We are focused on giving our fan base, new songs and new look moving forward. We have received nothing but positive feedback over the years and we love you all for your support at every venue we perform.
Here is an introduction to “Wildefire.” Tony David has been performing for 23 years. Thus, has evolved “WildeFire”. Check out our bios. Then click on our “Upcoming Shows”, and come out to our shows, enjoy and have fun with us.
I have two more CD’s called “Up All Night” recorded in 2007 And “Straight from the Heart” recorded in 2008.
About Tony David
When you’re talking about Tony David the professional, are you talking about the businessman or the performer? The truth is…both! Tony’s formula is the same for each, a great product and customer satisfaction. Tony got to the stage originally by sitting in with musicians here and there, this turned into a relatively steady “sit-in” with one of Denver’s premiere acts, “The Glass Menagerie” at the acclaimed Aurora Summit.
As Tony’s love for music grew, so did his fan base. Tony reached the realization that the stage was his “New Beginning.” His passion is obvious in his unique voice, style and stage presence and he has earned great respect from his peers and the admiration of his ever-growing fan club. An evening with Tony is more than just another night of listening to music. It’s great fun with the music from the 50’s to present, standards, country, rock ‘n roll. He can do it all and he does it well.
Tony is an avid golfer and uses his talent and celebrity to help others such as the children of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado and now TAPS www.taps.org. All who were involved in Tony’s first CD “New Beginnings” are proud to be part of the project and proud to be involved with such an extraordinary performer.

About Susan Skojec
Always in love with music in most genres Susan has been singing with Tony David for 7 years and joined WildeFire in January 2016. She was also a member of the band Conspiracy here in Denver in 2014-2015. Susan’s musical influences include Stevie Nicks, Chrissy Hines and Patsy Cline. Note from Tony David: “Susan brings one of the most beautiful voices to our stage. Susan mesmerizes the audience with her “tone” her “velvet voice“ her “prefect timing” and her lovely stage presents. She is now a performer and not just another pretty voice. Her style and grace on stage is unmatched. She is a great addition to WildeFire.”
About Frank Longobardi
Frank Longobardi – Vocalist, Entertainer
I’ve been singing since I was a kid (according to my Mother). But became very interested the first time I heard The Beatles! Started with a three-piece acoustic act, and built up from there. After singing in various bands in San Antonio TX and now Denver CO, I currently sing in a band called Skool Daze, playing Classic Rock and some Country.
I’ve been singing harmony and some leads in Wildefire for about 9 months. I love every minute of it!! Wildefire is all about keeping it fun on stage, which translates to fun for the audience as well. Singing with three other excellent vocalists makes for some amazing 3 and 4 part harmony!
About Karin Demko
WildeFires’ Official Photographer
I have taken pictures of my travels for 25+ years. My love for photography and my quest to capture the most “perfect shot” is a constant source of achievement and enjoyment. Early in my professional career, I was fortunate to spend 15 years working for the U.S. Government on a small Pacific Atoll named Johnston Island where I practiced my photography of birds, ocean landscapes, sunrise/sunsets, palm trees and underwater shots of fish and sharks. It was during this time, that I developed my “wanderlust” and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Great Britain, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, and Morocco. Most of my photography concentrates on animals and scenic landscapes. In the last few years, I began taking pictures of people — which I find both exciting and challenging. My heartfelt goal is to always be mindful that I did my utmost to capture their “personality” and “character” in such a way that they are delighted with the end result.
