Al Fuller fills a room with music and verse as
a single performer. He also performs as a
trio Suitcase Full Of Blues with Jimmie Fadden of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band fame, and bassman JP Coley. In addition there is the Al Fuller Band, which
includes Burt Englesman or Moe Cates on bass and Rich
MacDonald on drums.
Al Fuller has taught thousands of students to play guitar, bass
guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmonica since he moved to
Sarasota over 15 years ago. His skills at teaching led Fogts Music
to offer him a teaching position that he has held since he came to
the area in 1996.
Al grew up in Western Massachusetts, graduated from Holyoke
Community College with an Associates degree in Music, then
went on to study at University of Massachusetts, where he
minored in Music, majored in English, and graduated with a
degree in English. This gave Al a strong background in music
theory. Al taught guitar at Holyoke Community College before
moving to this area.
He has played for troops in Viet Nam, in concerts clubs and
festivals all over the U.S., performed in England, Mexico, Spain,
Thailand, and Australia.
