Todd Morgan & the Emblems
Todd Morgan and the Emblems are undoubtedly one of the most exciting local bands in the Sacramento area. Since 2007, they've been delighting audiences with their sound and performance style. The band is led by Singer/Songwriter/Pianist Todd Morgan. Todd's original music takes elements from every faction and every era of American music from 1920's/30's Jazz, to 50's/60's Rock 'n' Roll, to present-day Pop and Rock, and everything in between, creating a familiar, yet fresh and modern sound. Their emphasis is not only on the music and lyrics, but also on visual performance.
The band consists of four musicians, and contains two soloists: Todd Morgan on Piano/Vocals and Jerad Williams on electric lead guitar. Together, the band gives their audience a show to remember. Todd performs not only as an instrumentalist, but also an exciting singer and dancer for the band. With Todd's distinct, exciting and informed vocal and performance style, Jerad's energetic solos, and Jessica and Cameron's backing, the band is one of the hottest bands in the Sacramento area.
Their newest album, "Reality", released in June of 2012 under just the name Todd Morgan, takes on a new direction musically from their self-titled album, having a much more modern approach and sound this time around, as opposed to the heavily 50's sound of their first release. Also available is their EP, "Dance With Me", which contains 4 tracks from the 11 track "Reality" album.
The Jahari Sai Quartet
Born and raised in San Francisco, singer/songwriter Jahari Sai has grown up on some of California's most artistically fertile ground. In spite of her having to endure the obstacles of a severe upbringing, her music chronicles a personal celebration of life. At the center is an evocative, soulful voice delivered with poise and purity. But no less significant is the presence of her acoustic guitar, sounding a rhythmic chime of subtle tones and elegant changes. Jahari's music is a reflection of wide-ranging influences as well as a fusion of assorted styles. However, she never fails to establish a cohesive unity or define her own sonic spin. The result is a truly personal sound that is categorically all her own. Vibrant and joyful, or poignant and pensive, her vibe is her message: alluring, seductive, genuine, always revealing the innermost nature of her world. The Jahari Sai Trio: The ensemble combines Jahari's stunning voice and guitar with a smooth yet highly refined rhythm section. The instincts are inherently diverse: from jazz to bossa nova, pop, soul. The sound is both fresh and familiar, classic and modern, and always engaging. The trio can exude chamber-like intimacy or deliver tight, snug-fitting grooves. The sound produced by this small ensemble is thoroughly captivating. The trio also performs popular cover tunes from Norah Jones, Marvin Gaye, Nancy Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Roberta Flack,Corrine Bailey Rae
