The A-MOMS @ Third Man Record Store

Being "Detroit's Backup Singer" has given me countless opportunities to perform with top notch artists in outstanding venues. Well this event is no exception and, though a bit under the radar, hits the mark on all those perks of being a backing vocalist.

Jack White is the king of "if you know, you know" taste making, so I won't give out too many details about the performance,  except that The Algebra Mothers will be releasing an LP this evening.  And I'll leave ya with this..local fe-rocker Queen bee and I will be "nuns in chains"?!?

Chrissy Morgan & Bruce Farrell @ Third Monk Brewing Company

Bruce and I are super happy to perform at Third Monk again. What a listening room! What a generous portion of mini beers for their sampler! "What brewery, I've lived here more than a decade..." Oh yes! There is a tiny local brewery that platinum recording engineer, Jeff, owns and he puts as much care into his beers as he does his sound quality from those performing. Can't wait to be back.

to Jul 10

Chrissy Morgan & Susie Woodman @ Black Lotus Brewery

Black Lotus Brewery in Clawson is known as one of the BEST open mic nights out of town and I have to say it's all because of Mr. Steve bad joke Szjana! The host of the evening strumming his guitar with the rest of em is just so easy going... no big egos on this stage or through out the evening. So when he asked us to be the featured performer for the evening we just had to take him up on it.. 

You see the morgan/ woodman catalog consists of enough original material that we're recording an album! The process begins in October, but we can get all the practice in before hand and really get to know these songs.  Sooo.. bring your guitar, your vibraslap, or your drum sticks and get ready for a night of original music

The Chrissy Morgan Trio @ The London Chop House

You know, sometimes you just have to book yourself the big gigs once in a while just to make sure you're still on the right path. Nothing against the farmer's markets and corner busking, but sometimes you just need to share your vocals to the finer diners. The London Chop House is just "oozing with history". Just found out it was considered one of the top 10 restaurants in the 60's by THE James Beard. Yah sure that's a long time ago, but that wouldn't stop this classy joint from keeping up with the times. Sure it's still located in the basement on Congress, but it's guests have included everyone from Frank Sinatra and Jimmy Hoffa to Kid Rock and Barbara Streisand (likely on Barbara tip.. she used to perform at what was the caucus club across the street back when her career was just beginning) and everyone who's everyone else has popped on by at least once for a special meal.

Joe Jaber & The Last Divide @ Detroit Music Weekend

If any city on this planet knows how to make music, it has got to be Detroit. And so I'm pretty psyched to be backing Joe Jaber (pronounced jabber) on some vocals at The Ford Stage next to Music Hall for Detroit Music Weekend. We go on at 2 sharp for a short set, but the day consists of performances from Jeff Daniels and The Jacksons to local feministas Audra Kubat and Stffanie Chris'tian! Happy to be right in the middle of it all..

Well Bruce and I have performed at the Birmingham Farmer's Market and always have a blast, so we're making the rounds.. This time things are a bit switched up. The city of Troy has their farmer's market available on Fridays, which I kinda love... no waking at the crack o dawn to get those fresh eggs... instead stroll on by after work and get your groceries before the weekend begins! Look for us around the Troy Public Library.

Chrissy Morgan & Susie Woodman at O'mara's Acoustic Summer Nights

There's just something about O'mara's that perfectly defines Berkley. Could it be the secret fairy door (kid friendly), or the fabulous women's bathroom (no joke... see it to believe it) or maybe the balance of a good bar along and delicious meals in the dining room (regulars everywhere!). And along with all of that, an outdoor patio that combines everything with LIVE MUSIC!!

Well Susie and I are still on a high for being nominated for Outstanding Modern Jazz Group for the Detroit Music Awards and we can't wait to share with you what we do!! We promise, singalongs, kazoo solos, originals tunes, and a couple guest vocalists joining us! 

Stop on by, or make a reservation for a (table near the band).

I know Erik cuz he's interviewed me on his internet radio station CRB (Cave Radio). But you should know Eric cuz he has helped to raise money for families down on their luck, the Redford Relay for Life, and multiple Autism Awareness events. It's unfortunate that he has been having some health issues and so now it's time to "help the helper".
