UPDATED FOR COVID-19: I AM available for digital performances via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, FB Live or Skype.
I am a professional singer/songwriter/guitarist/cellist and I want to play for your event! I’ve played all over the country for private events, home concerts, weddings, corporate events, theatres, vineyards and more. From jazz standards to pop/rock/country/rap. With a combination of rhythm and lead guitar, vocals, and looping, I can bring your event to the next level! Available for solo to full band trio, or more, I would love to help make your event a great memory. Thank you for considering me. -Brian
We were already impressed by how easy and seamless scheduling was with Brian. From first contact through the day of, communications were simple and straightforward. We really didn’t need to worry about a thing.
On the day, Brian was prompt, required no assistance in getting set up and was instantly the highlight of our corporate event. He’s personable and has a voice that makes people stop and take notice. His presence added ambiance and facilitated an evening that truly felt special. We would definitely work with Brian again.
Response from Brian Sutherland:
Gosh Shane, thank you SO MUCH! I cannot wait to share play for you guys again soon. #SEEYOUINVEGAS :)
We were looking for an acoustic singer/songwriter for my companies spring event. From the first correspondence with Brian, I knew he was the right call. Very professional, concise, and event-minded. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, from helping to decide where he should be in the space to actually MC'ing on the fly. He was perfect. Amazing cover songs and a bunch of great original songs too! Great to listen to, engaging with the crowd, and he read the room really well. To be honest, initially I thought the quote was a bit high ($1k and a room), but I plan to have him at every event I host from here on out.
Response from Brian Sutherland:
Thanks so much for the kind words. Can't tell you how much fun it was to play for you guys! Too much fun! Stay in touch! - B
I first saw Brian at a South Texas resort ranch where he was the featured entertainer. With a balanced presentation of original work with the numbers everyone knows, the audience quickly became fans. We heard from the workers that Brian was by far the best performer they'd seen in over a year and saw a few of them dancing in the kitchen! The talent and warmth compelled me to book Brian to play my wife's retirement party last month at the Ritz-Carlton Dallas. He played songs significant to her and again, turned our guests in to immediate fans. If you are looking for a talented, soulful entertainer for your next event, save some time and book Brian!
