I’m thrilled to share with you an interview I had with the one and only Brain Culbertson. I’m a “HUGE” fan, so that made it even more of an honor for me. He was very gracious to take the time out of his busy schedule. He shared with me his concept behind the 2nd Annual Napa Valley Getaway that he hosts. He gave me some insight on how his CD “Dreams” evolved, and talked about his collaborations with a few of the finest vocalists and musicians. We also shared our admiration for the legendary David Sanborn, and how he influenced us both at an early age.
Brian loves playing in Charlotte, NC, and is looking forward to performing at the Uptown Jazzfest on Friday June 21st.

Now I’m all grown up and even more immersed in music. I never miss an opportunity to enjoy good music. I’ve spent the last 2 years attending concerts in different cities. Enjoying different jazzfests has become one of my favorite things to do. One of my favorites is the Uptown Charlotte Jazzfest in Charlotte, NC. I’ve attended the past 3 years since they began. The 4th Annual Uptown Charlotte Jazzfest is scheduled for June 21-22, 2013 at the Time Warner Cable Uptown Ampitheater. The line-up is as follows. Friday, Charlotte’s own 5th and York, Euge Groove, Peter White, and headlining will be Brian Culbertson Official. On Saturday, there’s Gregg Karukas Keyboardist/Composer, Marion Meadows, Paul Taylor, Vincent Ingala(Smooth Jazz Artist), and finishing out the fest will be BWB(Norman Brown, Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun). It’s become one I don’t ever intend to miss and neither should you. Tammy Greene aka the Jazz Diva is one of the most well-known and respected promoters of fine jazz concerts in the area. Along with the Uptown Charlotte Jazzfest, Tammy hosts concerts all year long. She’s also the diva behind the Lowcountry Jazz Festival in Charleston, SC, which is August 30-Sept 1, 2013.
