JOHN FUZEK has been performing his own style of music, either solo or as part of a duo, around the Northeast and various points of the U.S. for over 25 years. He was part of the popular duo Fuzek-Rossoni for seven years, and still occasionally performs with Mary Ann Rossoni. He produced the Hear In Rhode Island Music Festival for eight years, and organized showcases and workshops for the Rhode Island Songwriters Association.

John has also worked with other festivals, and helped produce a few CDs by other artists. His first solo, full length CD, "A Dog's Age." was released in May 2004 and was chosen by the Providence Phoenix as one of the Best Acoustic CDs in Rhode Island. John has been a Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll nominee several times and has won twice in the Best Male Vocalist category. He is also a member of Forever Young, a Neil Young tribute band composed of Rhode Island's finest rock musicians. He has shared the stage with such notables as Judy Collins, Richie Havens, Kevin Bacon, Steve Forbert, Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary), River Phoenix, Tom Rush, Marshall Crenshaw, Livingston Taylor, and many more.

AMY BEDARD is a classically trained violinist but picked up the electric violin about 15 years ago. She received her B.S. degree in Music Education at Rhode Island College where she played violin and also sang in the chorus and with the chamber singers. Amy has been playing in the RIC Symphony orchestra for the past 25 years. She has also been teaching music and strings classes in the Providence Public School system for the past 17 years. She fronted the rock band the Sliders for about 5 years in the late 90's. Amy plays guitar and violin and sings as half of the acoustic duo, Providence Underground, with Gil Allen (since 2001). She is also a member of Forever Young, a Neil Young tribute band composed of Rhode Island's finest rock musicians. Amy performs in a wedding ensemble, A Change of Scene, and plays violin in pit orchestras for various theater companies throughout RI and Massachusetts.

ED MCGUIRL was with the well known Greencastle Band from 1977 to 1987, playing Celtic music throughout New England. After taking some time off to do family-oriented things like coaching youth soccer, Ed began playing solo and with fellow multi-instrumentalist and long time partner Mike Fischman as the 'Folk Support Group' in the early 90's. Ed's songs have found their way onto numerous compilation CDs and a soundtrack for an NBC documentary on the problem of hunger in the U.S. He has won the prestigious 2007 Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll in the Local Blues category, and was nominated again in 2008. He also won the 2005 Motif Magazine Reader's Poll in the Local Blues category. Of particular note is his inclusion on the 2007 Rhode Island Songwriters Association's "RISA In The Raw" calendar as "Mr. March." In recent years Ed has opened for Duke Robillard and The Blind Boys Of Alabama. He is not sure if he is on a no-fly list but has never gotten a gig at an airport so sees no need to worry. He aspires to be a full-time philanthropist as soon as someone gives him enormous amounts of money.

MIKE FISCHMAN escaped from Long Island, New York in 1985 to the cultural diversity that is Rhode Island.in order to maintain his riparian status. Since then, he has played in bluegrass, old timey, Irish, rock 'n roll, blues, acoustic folk, Dixieland, swing, jazz, country and western, and world folk fusion bands. In his spare time, he teaches guitar, mandolin, three kinds of banjo, a little bass, and, in a pinch, harmonica. Aside from that, Mike does very little, save for his volunteer work in quantum mechanics. Mike can be seen and heard with numerous bands, including The Gnomes and French Connection. He has also been a guest musician on many other folk groups' recordings, including one country music production that won a 1995 Boston Music Award. Mike has produced several of his own CDs as well.

DAN LILLEY grew up listening religiously to folk music by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and of course Neil Young. He eventually came to embrace The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who, Led Zep, and the entire canon of classic rock geniuses. Now Dan owns a couple of killer electric guitars himself, along with his trusty Gibson acoustics. But it all goes back to the beautiful tone of the acoustic guitar. That forms the basis of Dan's very soul. He has fronted many bands, including Tyger Tyger, The Flying Ditchdiggers, and Lovetrain. Lovetrain was a 4-piece rock and roll band from Providence, Rhode Island. The band started in 1993 and released its first cassette, entitled "Off The Track," in 1995. Shortly afterwards the band underwent lineup changes, transforming itself from a country-tinged rock band to a harder-edged rock and roll outfit. Lovetrain's second CD, "Destination," was released in 2010 to numerous positive reviews, and was nominated for "Album of the Year" in the 2011 Motif Magazine Music Awards. After 15 odd years playing together, Lovetrain finally disbanded for good in 2010.

Dan's musical focus has morphed into the duo, Dan Lilley & Scatman, consisting of Dan and MIKE SULLIVAN (former lead guitarist for Lovetrain). Dan and Mike have found that as a duo there is more work available with a lot less hassle. The repertoire remains very similar to what Lovetrain was playing - Dan's originals along with folk, rock, and blues from the 60's and 70's. Dan was voted Best Male Vocalist in the 2010 Motif. In addition to Dan Lilley & Scatman, Dan also performs with Forever Young, Rhode Island's premiere Neil Young tribute band. This stellar outfit has been gaining popularity in the New England area, earning the Motif Magazine Award for Best Tribute band in 2008, 2010 and 2011.
