Rofo is an Italo disco project formed by Fonny de Wulf and Ronny Verept in the early 1980s.
Along with Ronny Verept, they produced two songs, "Watch Out (Here They Come)" and "Flashlight on a Disconight", the latter a big hit in 1983 when released all around Europe. But soon after, Verept and the lead vocalist (only known as 'Peter') left the band. After their departure, de Wulf began searching for a new vocalist, and found John Sauli. In 1984, Rofo released another single, "You Got to Move it On", and "I Want You" the following year, to great success. In 1987, Rofo offered another single "Beach Love", but it did not match the success of previous singles. Although this has not been proven, it has been speculated that Sauli left the band mid-way 1987. After he supposedly left the band, de Wulf composed an instrumental track "Rofo's Theme", which proved to be his most successful single. Not only a big hit around Europe, but its success allowed it to be released in other countries, including the U.K., the United States and Australia. An album was released in 1988, featuring four new songs and remixes of previous tracks. In 1990, a sequel single to "Rofo's Theme" was released, but proved to be Rofo's penultimate single.
