FOREVER YOUNG – 15TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW - A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF NEIL YOUNG

  • Celebrating the band's 15th anniversary with all past and present members! John Amitrano, Amy Bedard, Becky Chace, Mark Cutler, Leo Dumas, Sean Finnerty, John Fuzek, Gary StGermain, Dan Lilley, and Pete Vendettuoli will share the stage for the first time together since 2016! Now in their fourteenth year, the Forever Young band is a group of performers that pay tribute to the SONGS of Neil Young. No one in the band tries to imitate Neil Young. There are five vocalists in the band and the songs are fronted by different members with added backing harmonies. All of the musicians performing in Forever Young are staples of the Rhode Island music scene and veterans of many national and regional tours. In addition, they are all fans and have been influenced by the music of Neil Young. Four of the members are performing singer songwriters who have their own projects on the side. Drawing on the 40+ year career of Neil Young the show highlights many of Young’s popular songs and a few “deep cuts”. The band performs both the acoustic and electric songs that Neil Young is famous for. Their performances are reminiscent of and are heavily influenced by the "Four Way Street" live album recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. They are a high energy band that is just as fun to watch as to listen to. Audiences are always “wowed” by a Forever Young show! THE SHOW: A typical Forever Young show will be two sets of music and run from 2-3 hours depending on the venue and audience. Sometimes even three hours is not enough for the fans! During the set they will seamlessly play through the rock, folk, and country styles of Young's music. The performers trade off on lead vocals and will switch instruments many times during the night. Two, three, and four part harmonies have been incorporated into many of the songs. The numbers include anything from Young's Buffalo Springfield days all the way up to his current Promise of the Real phase. Forever Young never disappoints and garners new fans with every show!
