Brian Pinardi has been playing live music professionally for more than 20 years. He first picked up one of his Dad’s guitars at age 8, taught himself how to play it, and has loved playing music ever since. Brian has enjoyed being a guitarist and lead vocalist in bands and performing solo and duo acoustic gigs in bars, nightclubs, concert venues, and small and large events throughout New England, NYC, Florida, and Nashville. He has been performing here in Hampton Roads and at venues on the Outer Banks since moving here 3 years ago.
Brian plays music from many different genres from the 1960s – today, though his primarily influences include Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Marley, and many other 90s alternative artists. He has a large range of songs in his repertoire and enjoys being able to play songs that people request. His friends back in CT where he grew up used to call him “the human jukebox”. He enjoys interacting with the audience and is known to have audience members join him on stage to sing melody and/or harmony. He is extremely professional and always arrives early to get a feel for the venue, and to set up optimal sound. He is available for club gigs, private parties, and corporate events as a solo or duo act and is interested in joining a band in 2019 that is looking for a guitarist/vocalist.
