Before they even had a name a charming young girl called to book the band for their very first show. M-O-R-G-L-B-L were the first letters to came to mind.

Led by French guitarist extraordinaire Christophe Godin and anchored by the phenomenal Ivan Rougny on bass, Morglbl gained international acclaim through their first two albums in 1997 and 1998.  Years of excessive touring saw the band's reputation grow till a break was needed. But in 2007 Morglbl came roaring back with their 3rd critically acclaimed album, Grotesk, which earned them an invitation to play at the 2008 NEARfest in Pennsylvania.  The audience was simply astounded and cheered the band to a double encore ~ a first in the ten year history of the festival for an opening band. Over 400 CD's were sold in 30 minutes!

2008: Christophe was voted the world's 4th best guitarist of 2010 in a GuitarPart magazine readers poll - only behind Gus G., Joe Bonnamassa, and Joe Satriani. That same year drummer Aurelien Ouzoulias joined Morglbl, bringing a new kick to the band's music. Highly sought for sessions and performances, Ouzoulias added his unmistakable style to the band's 4th album, 2009's Jazz for the Deaf.

Morglbl's live performances are a crazy mix of jazzy moods, fat, funky grooves and substantial chunks of metal all served up with a Zappa-like humor.  Some describe it as Primus meeting Steve Vai.  Morglbl hits like a heavyweight jab and makes you laugh…it's "jazz for deaf people!"
