MEET FAT CITY BAND

 

Brian Bartleson - Guitar, Vocals


Originally from Upstate NY, Brian relocated to Central FL in 1984.  Coming from a musical family, Brian began playing guitar and singing at a very young age.  Throughout his school years Brian participated in stage, marching, and jazz bands, vocal groups, stage productions, and variety shows, never passing up a chance to perform in front of a crowd.  Brian played his first gig on guitar at age 14 and graduated to playing nightclubs shortly after, requiring parental supervision in most venues.  Almost everything has changed since those early performances.  Two things that will never change are Brian's love of music and passion for performing in front of a crowd.
