"It's all about Cool Music, Jazzy Wine and Divine Cuisine" says former Bad Company Bassist, Paul Cullen "It's a lifestyle we live everyday".
A professional musician for over 30 years, Paul has put down his bass to concentrate on his passion for nylon string guitar. Since 2006 he has released 5 solo CDs with the latin jazzy feel that pairs perfectly with any wine in your glass. Since his first release Dreamdance, Paul has played over 3,000 performances, which included wine events with such esteemed vineyards as Michael David Winery, BR Cohn and Italian Family Vineyards including Conti di San Bonifacio in Tuscany. And in 2012, Pauls wine was poured while opening up for Foreigner at a corporate event at the Orpheum Theater in St Louis. And recently he opened up for the Classic Rock Band Heart.
While he is honing his craft on guitar and his palate for wine, Paul has revived classic recipes from his Italian Grandma Tagliaferro and Mom Nancy along with his Italian Chef friends versions. His recent In-home dinner parties and cooking classes have become wildly popular, teaching about authentic Italian products, including amazing cheeses while pairing with wine, all while playing guitar.
Pauls current release Live in Tuscany is being received extremely well at his In-Home Dining Events and Live Concerts. Recorded at Conti di San Bonifacio Wine Resort with Italian Violinist Alessandro Golini, it features original compositions and a few covers.
LCB focuses on playing original music with a reasonable amount of covers thrown into the mix to pay tribute to their inspirations. The band always plays with feeling and improvisation… you’ll never hear a song played the same way twice.
