Friday, May 13th, 1994

This was my very first concert as Brian Culbertson, “the artist.” It was held where the jazz band rehearsed in the basement of DePaul’s Music School building. Nice lighting, huh? Unbeknownst to me, the blonde sitting in the front row was my future wife, Michelle. She had come to watch her friend perform (the bass player, Sharay). I still remember looking at her while I was playing and thinking, “Wow, she’s fine! I should meet her after the show.” Needless to say, Sharay introduced us later that night and the rest is history.


The Band L to R: BC - keys, Tom Hipskind - drums, Brian Budzik - sax, Sharay Reed - bass, Harry Mura - guitar.
