Brian Culbertson at the Birchmere-An Evening of Great Jazz!

TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!

Brian Culbertson began his musical journey 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 Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower of Power, The Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets and Chick Corea. So naturally gifted was Brian, his 7th grade piano recital consisted of all original tunes. Brian flourished school bands starting in 5th grade and ended up moving to Chicago to complete his musical studies at DePaul University.  In 1994, at age 20, Brian self-produced his debut album, Long Night Out. After that release, he then went on to compose jingles for clients such as United Airlines, Gatorade, Sears, Coors and McDonald's in the bustling city's highly competitive advertising community while still continuing to make records and tour.

 

Since then, Brian has released twelve more albums, toured around the world, seen his name at the top of Billboard and radio charts, worked and performed with industry all-stars like Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, Larry Graham, Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Musiq Soulchild, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Chuck Brown, and Bootsy Collins just to name a few, and received numerous awards including recently being nominated for a 2012 NAACP Image Award and a 2012 Soul Train Award.

 

The show starts at 7:30.  OPEN seating with doors opening at 6:00.  I will try to save as many seats as possible but would appreciate help securing seats.   Please rsvp only after you have purchased a ticket.     Tickets are $65.25.  Tickets can be purchased at:  http://www.ticketmaster.com/brian-culbertson-alexandria-virginia-03-27-2014/event/15004B83E55B711A?brand=birchmere&camefrom=cfc_birchmere_website

    For what section should we purchase seating. I know RSVPs were to be submitted after ticket purchases, but I'd hate to end up in the wrong space. :)

      Open seating. I will be saving seats based on the responses I get from rsvp (i.e. if you indicate that you have a ticket)

    Sherry - it looks like it's open seating and we would just have to go in together in order to sit together - is that correct? I've never been to this venue before.
