Man…if I posted blog updates as much as I post on Facebook or Instagram lol!!! I keep
saying I will do better…bear with me, Peeps.
This year has been busy already. We’ve had a couple of rare Brian Culbertson shows
during the off season. Both of them were epic in their own ways. In January, we played in
Kansas City, one of the few big appearances/performances I have had in my second
hometown. With friends and fam in the crowd, we shut things down at the Gem Theater
and later that night I sat in across the street at The Blue Room with my friend and former
bandmate, drummer Michael Warren; an 18-year old terror on alto sax, Houston Smith;
world-renowned vocalist, Lisa Henry; and Kansas City’s own…the legendary saxophonist/bandleader/teacher, Bobby Watson!!!
Last month, we performed in Long Beach, CA on Valentine’s Day as part of a bill with the incredible Will Downing and fellow saxophonist, Jeanette Harris. As epic as that already was, while we were performing Secret Garden, this musical genius and legend walked onstage and got it in with us. If you look closely you will see me in the back losing all of my composure and professionalism to get a stage view video lol. Stevie Wonder kinda makes you lose yourself!!!
