That little guy from the Sun will return to the Boston area in April on the national tour of his all-new, out-of-this-stratosphere, multimedia show. Featuring songs and videos from the brand-new DVD, Gustafer Yellowgold’s Year In The Day, along with plenty of Gustafer “fan favorites,” Gustafer’s show will come to The Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St., Arlington, MA, on Saturday, April 21 at 10:30 a.m.
Groovy Gustafer Yellowgold came from the Sun and landed in Minnesota. His humorous adventures burst forth in hand-drawn music videos from cartoonist/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor. Taylor developed the “musical moving storybook” Gustafer Yellowgold experience as equal parts pop rock concert and hand drawn cartoon movie.
In Gustafer Yellowgold’s Year In The Day, we find former Sun resident Gustafer Yellowgold experiencing his unique take on a year’s worth of Earth holidays, both classic and unusual. New Year’s Day, Groundhog Day, Pancake Day/Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day and many more receive the one-of-a-kind Gustafer blend of blissful pop-music, lyrical poignancy, and cartoon absurdity.
Since his creation in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, praised by Newsweek as “full of great pop tunes and hand-drawn animation about a li’l fella from the sun.” The Los Angeles Times enthused, “Taylor’s whimsical, lightly psychedelic world forms an interesting bridge between adult and kids’ music.” The Washington Post declared, “He’s a star on stage and screen! … The mix of catchy tunes and offbeat stories has endeared Taylor, and Gustafer, to teenagers as well.” The Chicago Tribune wrote, “Gustafer Yellowgold has made kids’ music so cool that teenagers and ultra-hip bands such as Wilco want to get in on the act … a shiny blend of pop art and pop tunes.” New York Magazine named Morgan Taylor “Best Kids’ Performer,” calling Taylor “the most original performer on the family-music scene today.” Two Gustafer Yellowgold songs have reached #1 on Sirius/XM’s Kids Place Live kids’ music channel.
Gustafer is not just for kids! Gustafer Yellowgold’s Show has performed as the support act for WILCO and The Polyphonic Spree, as well as headlining kids’ venues all across the U.S., in London, and even in Seoul, Korea! Gustafer has been seen off-Broadway in his own productions of Gustafer Yellowgold’s Mellow Sensation and Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock, and his orchestra show, Gustafer Yellowgold’s Golden Heart Symphony, has thrilled audiences coast-to-coast.
