Forever Young
Forever Young Conceived after Mark Cutler, John Fuzek and Dan Lilley performed the Neil Young classic “Powderfinger” as a group set closer for a RI Songwriters Association show at Stone Soup Coffeehouse in Pawtucket, RI, “Forever Young” is a group of performers that pay tribute to the songs of Neil Young. In addition to Cutler, Fuzek and Lilley, Forever Young original members also include Becky Chace and Pete Vendettuoli. John Amitrano and Phil Hicks were added to the band in December of 2007 to give the show a "Crazy Horse" kind of feel. All of the musicians performing as part of “Forever Young” are staples of the Rhode Island music scene. In addition, they are all fans and have been influenced by the music of Neil Young. Drawing on the 40+ year career of Neil Young; the two hour + show highlights many of Young’s popular songs and a few of the more obscure numbers. The show is presented either as an “in-the-round”-meaning that all five musicians will be on stage at once and take turns performing the songs either solo or with accompaniment of one or several members of the group; or with the full seven -piece band doing both ACOUSTIC and ELECTRIC SETS. These formats are reminiscent of the "Four Way Street" live album recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and of Neil's back-up band Crazy Horse. "Forever Young" takes you back, gets you singing, and puts those Neil Young songs in your head to linger long after the show!
