      Biography  

      Brian Culbertson (born January 12, 1973) is a smooth jazz musician and instrumentalist from Decatur, Illinois, United States. Son of jazz band director and trumpeter Jim Culbertson, Brian’s instruments include the keyboard and trombone.  

      Heavily influenced by funk, much of Culbertson’s material is funk-based instrumental, but he has also called upon vocalists such as Trey Lorenz, Marc Nelson and Kenny Lattimore to add to his pieces.  

      Culbertson has released eleven albums so far. The first three were on the Blue Moon label: “Long Night Out” 1994, “Modern Life” 1995, and “After Hours” 1996. After moving to the Atlantic Records, three more albums followed: “Secrets” 1997, “Somethin’ Bout Love” 1999, and the critically acclaimed “Nice & Slow” 2001. “Come on Up” 2003 was released on Warner Jazz, and Culbertson then moved to GRP Records for his project, “It’s On Tonight” 2005 which debuted at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s contemporary-jazz charts, just to name a few. His twelfth album, titled XII, was released on July 20, 2010 to positive reviews.  

      Brian Culbertson also works with many other musicians in the contemporary jazz arena, often as a composer and arranger. Culbertson is currently credited with working with Dave Koz, Peter White, Richard Elliot, Jeff Lorber, Michael Lington and legendary A&M Records composer and producer Herb Alpert to name but a few. He is married to Michelle Culbertson.  

      Brian has regularly appeared live on many radio stations including KTWV in Los Angeles and the UK’s Solar radio with Michael J. Parlett.  

      Brian has also regularly been an opening act for Barry Manilow’s shows outside of Las Vegas since 2007

        • Chocolatier Friday night they will be right here in the Lou. You won’t believe this but the last time they were in town. I had to pick up my Mom from Dialysis so I could not go. At lunch time from work, I walked over to the venue they were playing at. I took George Clinton a card extending my condolences because it was the first time in over thirty years that he had performed and I would be unable to attend. The doors to the venue were not locked I walked in right up to the stage and asked the band where was George? They told me he wouldn’t be there until 4:00. I aksed if they would give him this card and tell him I was sorry.  You should have seen how they looked at me. AllI can say is “Make my funk the Pfunk, I want my funk uncut, make my  funk the pfubk, I want to get funked up, I want the bomb I want the pfunk, I want my funk uncut, make my funk the pfunk, I want to get funked up“.estatic
