bassist, singer, raconteur & roustabout
Brian Sulser was born at a very early age, and brought up even faster. Early exposure to singing in church and playing piano and guitar eventually led to his taking up the bass at the tender age of 11, and thus was his “gateway instrument” to a life in music. He received his Bachelor in Music from VCU in Jazz Performance Double Bass and is a full-time working musician “living the dream”. He currently performs with a mélange of musical endeavors, not the least of which is singing duets with his lovely and talented wife Aimee in their band the Flying Sulsers. He is Emcee and Music Director of the Rock & Roll Jubilee: the Titans of Teentown, a founding member of the Richmond jazz institution Chez Roué Orchetté, plays and sings bluegrass with Cook County, leads the classical/folk wedding string trio, the Stringfellas and performs award winning children’s songs with Hope Harris and the Cousins Jamboree, too. He stays busy freelancing with these several additional groups as well: Gypsy Roots, Elana Lisa & the Hot Mess, Rockfish Willie, Mary Hermann Garcia band, Hardin Reddy & the Anvil Brothers, Bob Blagg 2, Thundertones, SAS, Debra Dean Quartet, 3rd wave and Elizabeth Wise & the flash pan hunters. “I try to play all good music, and, I’m happy to be gainfully unemployed.” Brian and Aimee reside in beautiful and scenic downtown Mechanicsville with their mighty little Chihuahuas Rosie and Mabel.
