He was born in Buffalo, New York, and grew up in Amherst, New York. In 1965, he became a founding member of the "Blues Project", a popular New York City folk rock band, along with Al Kooper, Danny Kalb, Steve Katz and Roy Blumenfeld. Kulberg was the band's bass guitarist, also known for his electric flute virtuosity.
He later was a member of "Seatrain" which he formed with Roy Blumenfeld after the breakup of Blues Project in early 1969. Peter Rowan and Richard Greene were among the renowned members of Seatrain.
For twenty-five years, Kulberg worked in Fairfax, California as a musician and composer, collaborating with Chris Michie, while at the same time owning and operating, along with Michie, the music production company Kulberg/Michie Music. Their most notable contribution under this name were Brøderbund's Kid Pix Studio and Kid Pix Studio Deluxe, creating all of the music clips that the user could choose from to go along with their Moopie, Stampimation, Digital Puppet show, or, in the Macintosh version of Kid Pix Studio Deluxe, their SlideShow presentation as background music. Most of those same music clips were also made available in Kid Pix Deluxe 3 (including the OS X remaster, Kid Pix Deluxe 3X, and the completely three-dimensional upgrade, Kid Pix 3D) and Kid Pix Deluxe 4.
Kulberg died of lymphoma in January 2002. On October 18, 2007, he was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame. Kulberg is survived by his wife Lorie, three sons and two grandsons.
