Andy Kulberg

BMHOF Class of 2007

Growing up in Amherst, Andy Kulberg's life was always about music. Although he was an accomplished flautist, he surprised his family by showing up at home one day with a stand-up bass. He worked at playing the bass but never gave up the flute. After leaving for Boston University, he ended up in NYC and joined The Danny Kalb Band.

Eventually, the two of them joined with Al Kooper, Steve Katz, and Roy Blumenthal to form the highly successful "Blues Project" which developed a huge following on college campuses and played many concerts as headliners at venues like "The Fillmore". After moving to California, Kulberg co-founded the highly successful group "Seatrain" which had commercial success with songs like "Thirteen Questions".

Andy passed away in 2002 but leaves his legacy of invention both musically and technically, having created what was then the first electric flute and having created some of the most interesting music of his time.
