Location United States
Introduction The Shuler Family Band is an inspiring family singing group with three generations of musicians singing a blend of bluegrass, quartet gospel, sacred hymns, country-western and cowboy music. Paul Shuler, the grandfather of the family, began traveling and singing with his wife Bonieta in 1962. After moving to Arizona in the mid ’80s they started singing and recording with numerous groups in the Phoenix area. Paul blends smooth leads and harmonies, he plays mandolin, guitar and banjo. Bonieta (or Grandma) sings and plays bass fiddle and guitar. Paul’s son Colin (who is an ordained minister in The Church of God) moved to Arizona with his wife Gerri and their six children in 2003. He plays guitar and saxophone and sings bass while Gerri sings clear sweet leads and harmonies. Jacob is Colin’s oldest son and is a fantastic mandolin and guitar picker while his brother Philip is a mean bass fiddler. They each possess vibrant soulful voices and are often featured in our singings. Lastly the three youngest Shulers—Sara, Megan and Thomas—often steal the show when they add their bright smiles and pure voices to make The Shuler Family Band a true family musical ensemble.
