Palandro's father, Denny, said he was performing in their honor.
"We're paying tribute to the three angels that we lost - my son, great friend Joey Ferry and his fiancée Kelly Wiseley, they're in our thoughts and prayers always and today we're dedicating the entire day to them," said Denny Palandro. "Thanks for the support that we got from the entire mummer's community throughout the entire year. We love you guys and we need the support, so please keep it coming."
Earlier this week, the band posted an emblem on their Facebook page with the initials "DP," "JF" and "KW."
The Palandro-Ferry Memorial Foundation, which was set up a day after the crash, continues to provide monetary scholarships and goodwill among the Philadelphia Mummers community.
