“A true to the heart, grit under the fingernails, blues man who recently rolled into Music City via New Orleans, Domenic Fusca is the real fucking deal when it comes to slide resonator guitar playing."

The Saint Johns, The Blue Velvets, and Domenic Fusca Acme Feed & Seed, Nashville, TN
Stomping out the rhythm with his foot, tickling the strings of his resonator guitar, while applying his finger slide in some of the most unique ways I’ve ever seen (going over the top of the guitar neck instead of coming from underneath like most traditional players do), Domenic “took us to church” all night long. The weathered blues troubadour is rock ’n’ roll personified, sipping his seemingly never ending supply of alcoholic beverages, and taking some time to kibitz with the crowd in-between songs. He even slipped in a Stones cover, “Dead Flowers,” in honor of the bands very special Nashville stop at LP Field, which was happened the next day. A genuine musician to his core, their is no fakeness or shiny veneer when it comes to his Tom Waits meets Howlin’ Wolf arrangements. Do yourself a favor Music City, and see this man perform any chance you get, because it is on par with most religious experiences … he’s one hell of a talented performer.

Domenic Get Your Soul Right
April 1, 2012
Review by Joseph Irrera.
Pittsburgh guitarist Domenic Fusca now calls New Orleans home and is a Frenchmen Street regular. Although Get Your Soul Right is generally a blues album, strip away the blues dressings and “City Girl” or “These Hearts” could be pop or country covers. I hear Bruce Springsteen covering “Time.” ... these songs are well-written and worth investigating.

First/Last - Domenic
Domenic is back! Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Domenic moved to New Orleans 20 years ago to chase his musical dreams and recently returned home to start getting back into the local musical community. Let’s all welcome him back into the fold as I thank Domenic (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last. #SupportPGHMusic
Hailing from the northeastern seaboard, i.e. Pittsburgh, and New York City, to New Orleans, comes the voice of 21st century blues. You find yourself in a crowded, smokey room. Everyone around you is soaking in the sweat of the Delta, you anticipate a great energy on the horizon. A lone figure, in flaired denim and long dark hair, approaches the mic. The sound of glass slide and a pounding boot, fill the midnight air. Then the voice, that "voice"....the one that made your father gasp, and your mother sigh. The sound of the Delta, the sound of old Nashville, the sound of rock-n-roll, the sound of a man's inner-soul, that voice, you hear it surround the room. You, my friend have just experienced Domenic. Come and see what CHECKPOINT CHARLIE, KERRY'S IRISH BAR and LOUNGE LIZARDS in New Orleans, already know...............DOMENIC is 21st century blues, cosmic country,and rock-n-roll........this music is real!
