Todd Morgan & the Emblems / Blog

Back In Sac !

Hello! I just returned from my solo tour and Summer NAMM. The shows were great, I met some great folks, made new fans, heard and played with many amazing musicians. I'll be posting some new photos of the trip soon. Attending NAMM in Nashville was very cool, easy to connect and discuss products and of course so much fun to play so many different instruments. I am happy to announce that I will be using Asterope cables after hearing the difference they can make to my sound quality. It was a pleasure meeting everyone!

If you live in the Folsom area, I hope you'll stop by the park at 50 Natoma St tonight, 7-9pm. The full band will be performing!

Best wishes, stay cool!

Todd Morgan

Whirlows, Tossed & Grilled!

This Saturday's show with Todd Morgan & friends is at Whirlow's Tossed & Grilled, 1926 Pacific Ave, Stockton CA 7-9pm. Come enjoy a couple hours of new and old Pop/Rock n Roll! All ages, no cover, great food at this place and a sweet little micro brew just a short walk through the open doorway.

Truckee Snow Day!

Todd Morgan has a "cool" show coming up this Friday, March 10th at the beautiful rustic Cottonwood Restaurant in Truckee CA. He hopes to get some really cool shots on camera to share. https://cottonwoodrestaurant.com/live-music/ With temperatures close or in the teens, this definitely will not be a patio show. But it will be a fun night of original songs and a variety of Rock & Roll/Blues & Jazz covers as the crowds favor dictates, featuring Todd on both piano or guitar.

Later this month, you can also catch Todd with friends performing as a trio at Whirlow's in Stockton, CA on March 25th! http://www.whirlows.com/

There is no door charge for either show, but please, do thank these fine venues with your food or drink purchases. Their support of live music is greatly appreciated!

Lots of summer concerts coming up this summer and other fun stuff with the Emblems so stay tuned!

My best wishes to All!
