Town Center in El Dorado Hills features Todd Morgan and the Emblems
This was the second time we have had the honor of doing sound for this band. We had our usual sound setup, and we love this band because there are only 4 of them. I was announcing and thanking the sponsors, when the new owner of the Sacramento Kings showed up with a few of the big investors. He took the mic for a bit to address the 800+ people in the crowd. It was a pretty cool twist to our usual Thursday night concert routine. The band went on and the crowd went crazy. The obvious non iPhone images are by Angie Cardeña.

Last Thursday night at the Town Center in El Dorado Hills we were treated to another concert by Todd Morgan and the Emblems. The attendance was great and the music was simply awesome. If you haven’t heard this group then you need to keep your eyes and ears out and be sure not to miss the opportunity. They have an energetic and refreshing sound and play with such heart and soul. If you were there you witnessed a whole lot of people with smiling faces and plenty of folks on the dance floor to evidence they were having a good time.

Todd Morgan and the Emblems at the Fountains in Roseville
29 Jul 2012
Last Saturday night (July 28, 2012) we were treated to a FREE concert at The Fountains in Roseville. The concert featured Todd Morgan and the Emblems and the best description that I can give is they were FANTASTIC! They are a rather unique group in that the band members appear to all be in the 20’s and yet sing songs from the 1950’s and they sound as if they belong in that era. Listening to this group last night was like seeing Jerry Lee Lewis live and in person but only better! This group not only can make you feel like you are transported back to the best days of American Rock and Roll, but they also have their own unique sound that could very well bring that sound back. All we need is another Dick Clark and we might just be on to something.
If you missed the concert in Roseville then you have a couple of more chances to hear them. They will be featured at the upcoming CAM Car Cruise in Sacramento on August 4th, and at the El Dorado Hills Town Center on Thursday August 16th.

Todd Morgan And The Emblems have a lot to show for all their hard work. Getting the best possible education in music by recording, performing and enduring the ups and downs of the record business, these enthusiastic musicians are bound to reach the outer limits with their endeavors and shows of excellence.
They are one class act with their charming style and good looks but also perform with technical prowess and excitement. They have chosen the genres of the past with their fifties music interpretations and their original songs. They have recorded some great melodies through the auspices of Fred Vail and other auspicious music aficionados.
The lead singing of Todd Morgan and back up group will be showing their talents for a long time to come. The female fans will love the romantic ballads and rockin songs that bring the house down.
They will be performing post show performances after the theater events of Hairspray in Mill Valley in June. So catch their act where you can it is sure to lighten your heart and keep your toes a tappin to their individual take on the music.
Todd Morgan and the Emblems are a four-piece Rock N Roll Band. They are led by singer/songwriter/pianist Todd Morgan. The band’s sound is influenced by nearly every faction of American popular music, but with an emphasis on fifties and sixties sound mixed with modern pop/rock and twenties and thirties jazz and everything in between.
The bands material consists of half originals and half covers. They formed in 2007 as a strictly fifties cover band, but have decided to add more variety and a larger amount of original works. A large reason why this group is different from nearly every other band is definitely the performance style of lead vocalist Todd.
Don’t expect flashing lights, bell or whistles. Do, however, expect a first class front-man with a great band. Do expect top-notch singing, dancing and instrumental solos. All in all expect nothing but a great show.
The band continues to play, progressing in leaps and bounds. They are always updating their repertoire with new material, new genres and songs. The sky is the limit for this enthusiastic band and their soulful singer Todd Morgan!
