MANDY HARVEY-vocalis and Ukuele with Daniel Navarro-bass, Alfred Sheppard Jr.-piano, Will Scecina-guitar and Dave Hamar-drums
Mandy Harvey is a deaf American singer-songwriter. A Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University, Mandy lost her residual hearing in 2006-2007 at age eighteen due to a neurological disorder, and left the program. She pursued several career options, including education, but returned to music in 2008. Though her hearing loss is profound, her timing, pitch and passion are perfect.
Mandy’s music has begun to attract the attention of those around the world, adding to her message of hope, dream and believe. For instance, CNN’s Great Big Story captured over 6 million hits on social media, Burt’s Bees signed her up for their remarkable women campaign, NBC Nightly News profiled her, and she has started performing at the worlds most prestigious clubs, concert stages and festivals around the country.
“From the first note, Mandy Harvey tames her audience into stunned appreciation as she glides pitch-perfect from breathy jazz standard to growling blues…. At show’s end the audience is on its feet. Some know the secret. Harvey has not heard any of it – not the applause, not the talent of the musicians who shared the stage, not her own incredible voice.”

Her unforgettable performances have entertained audiences from L.A.’s Jazz Bakery to Washington D.C.'s Blues Alley to London’s Pizza on the Park. While Donna was performing at Tavern on the Green in New York City, legendary crooner Tony Bennett dropped in for his birthday just to hear Donna sing his classic, "It Was Me." Mr. Bennett became an ardent fan, once flying home early from the Super Bowl just to catch Donna play with Dave McKenna at the Blue Note and then catching them again right here at Scullers Jazz Club.
Donna has made several albums, her latest produced by Challenge Records in the Netherlands, and she has worked with producer Brad Hatfield, lending her voice for music in both film and television, including “One Life to Live” and “Rescue Me.”

NEW RECORDING IS FUNK!
Brian Culbertson is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer who crosses genres between contemporary jazz, R&B, and funk. Heralding from the musically rich city of Chicago, he began his musical studies at the early age of 8 on piano and quickly picked up several other instruments by age 12 including drums, trombone, bass, & euphonium. Inspired by the great R&B/Jazz/Pop artists of the 70͛s like EWF, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn, and others, Brian Culbertson started composing original music for his 7th grade piano recital and hasn͛t stopped having self-produced 16 solo albums, most of which have topped the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts.
The concept for ‘Culbertson's September 2016 release, Funk! was to make an old-school, throwback funkadelic record in the style of P-Funk meets Prince and to tour with the same band that appears on the album - his band plus Chance (Howard). The show he'll be taking out on the road is unlike anything anyone has ever seen from Culbertson before. It’s on an entirely different level.
