Suburban Square Summer Concert Series featuring Brian Fitzgerald
Brian Fitzgerald, a man of many instruments, plays electric violin, guitar, piano, drums, bass, and is also a singer, beatboxer, and live-looping artist. Fitzgerald is known for his stage presence, improvisational skills, versatility, and unique approach to what is possible with four strings and a bow. How good is he? In 2008 he performed at the Grammys with the Foo Fighters. He has performed all over, from Los Angeles to Miami to Philadelphia to Ireland as a frontman and sideman in various bands. He has since shifted focus to solo performances and started integrating live looping. Aside from playing, he also produces, engineers, arranges, and composes music. Multi-talented only begins to describe this guy. Blending elements from a variety of genres and decades, Brian Fitzy falls somewhere between Daryl Hall and Jamiroquai by way of A Tribe Called Quest. Vocalist, electric violinist, guitarist, beat-boxer. Bringing these elements together live with looping technology, the result is soul-pop with undertones from the golden age of hip hop.
