Brian Culbertson began his quest in music at the age of 8 on piano, adding drums at 9, trombone at 10 then bass at 12. He grew up in Decatur, IL, loving genre-crossing jazz-pop artists such as Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Tower of Power, the Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets and Maynard Ferguson. So naturally gifted was Brian, his 7th grade piano recital consisted of all original tunes. Brian flourished in high school bands with his father, Jim Culbertson, as the school's award-winning jazz band director, moved to Chicago to complete his studies at private DePaul University, then went on to compose jingles for clients such as United Airlines, Oldsmobile, Sears and McDonald's in the bustling city's highly competitive advertising community.
- Brian and David Sanborn hit the road this summer as the "Dream Tour ". The 30-date tour kicks off on June 17 at Ramshead in MD.
- He likes to vacuum to relax.
