FAIRFIELD — Not only will Trinity Sullivan perform before the hometown crowd on Sunday, she’ll do it in a very familiar place.
Sullivan, who grew up in Fairfield, started working at Gordon’s Music and Sound when she was 17.
“I worked for Cliff (Gordon) off and on for years either in the store, delivering pianos or helping out with his big piano sale,” Sullivan wrote in an email to the paper.
About six years ago she moved to San Diego. Two years ago the band Vicious Phishes was formed.
Guitarist/singer Sullivan and guitarist, bassist and vocalist Sean Dough met through a mutual friend who died a few years ago. They started playing music together as therapy to help cope with the loss of their friend, giving birth to Vicious Phishes.
On Sunday, the trio will perform at Gordon’s Music and Sound as part of its all-ages concert series.
Vicious Phishes combines a variety of music from acoustic, hip hop, punk, blues, rock and more, Sullivan said. “We have a special energy and true emotion that seems to draw in a crowd,” she wrote.
The band is currently promoting “Jeff’s Song.”
“This was one of our first songs, written shortly following the death of our close friend, Jeff Andrews,” Sullivan wrote. “We used some of Jeff’s poetry to write the lyrics, and the music is all original.
“Jeff had a heart attack while hiking at his favorite place, Mission Trails. Playing this song always reminds us to cherish our loved ones, and our own lives. You never know when your time will come.”
Sullivan is looking forward to seeing family and friends. “And, definitely my little brother’s newborn baby boy,” she wrote.
It will also be special because Gordon’s was her first music store job and the place where she purchased her first guitar.
“Around that time I started to teach myself to play guitar and sing,” Sullivan wrote.
Dough is from Ocean City, Md. and is also a singing comedian. Michael Shaw is the band’s drummer. He grew up in San Bernardino.
The band is also playing 5 p.m. Saturday at the Tomato Festival.
