YOUNGSTOWN — With performances on hold because of the pandemic, the cabaret duo of Mary Jo Maluso and Rick Blackson is using its talents in other ways. The “Beyond Broadway” team is available for voiceovers, virtual performances, and to create original songs as unique gifts.
Blackson is also continuing to offer music lessons via Facetime. Songwriting, music theory and improvisation are also taught.
Maluso and Blackson typically perform for private parties and at country clubs and fine dining restaurants, with a repertoire that spans Broadway, country and the American Songbook. The act started in 1992.
