A.J. Fullerton Band
May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 pm$5.00
Raised as an only child in the mountains of rural Western Colorado, A.J. was brought up surrounded by numerous styles of music ranging from; Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Roots, & Blues. His biggest musical influences ended up being found in his parents’ collection of Classic Rock & Blues records. Playing solo, and in local bands throughout his mid-teens, by age 19 he was playing full-time supporting his rapidly developing solo career. His style of playing falls somewhere between the finger picking & slide of Country Roots music, and the groove based uptempo sensibilities of Blues and Rock & Roll.
In the few short years of his professional career, A.J. has won a number of awards & accolades. In 2016 he was the winner of the Colorado Blues Society’s “I.B.C Competition” , as well as winning the following Colorado Blues Society “Members Choice Awards”:
