A very popular duo in their day, Fuzek•Rossoni was formed 29 years ago when John Fuzek and Mary Ann Rossoni were simultaneously running ads in the “musicians wanted” classifieds of a local paper. They both were looking for musical partners to perform with. One answered the other’s ad. They met and played music and had a lot in common. The musical chemistry was immediate and they began writing songs. In a few months they released their first recording, “Living with the Fury and the Fire.” This recording and the duo went on to win many awards in the Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll of 1990. Together, they created songs that dealt with such issues as relationships, politics and the environment. Tight harmonies and nice blends of both rhythm, lead and fingerstyle acoustic guitar were their trademark. They released a second recording “Waking Up from the American Dream” and also contributed to many compilations and toured extensively around the Northeast. Fuzek-Rossoni were the driving force behind the beginnings of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association and Hear In Rhode Island. After 7 years together they decided to take a break. They remained great friends but musically began to move in different directions. John produced festivals and worked behind the scenes and Mary Ann began a solo career. Today they are both accomplished solo performers. After years of not performing publicly they are back for this 30th anniversary performance.
