Gustafer Yellowgold Coming to Long Island Children's Museum, 8/27
By popular demand, that little guy from the Sun is set to be back in Garden City! Gustafer Yellowgold brings his out-of-this-world, multimedia family show to LONG ISLAND CHILDREN'S MUSEUM, 11 DAVIS AVE., GARDEN CITY, NY 11530 at 11:30AM & 2:00PM on AUGUST 27TH, 2014.
Groovy Gustafer Yellowgold is a small, yellow, cone-headed fellow who came from the Sun and landed in Minnesota. Illustrator/songwriter/performer Morgan Taylor developed the "musical moving storybook" Gustafer Yellowgold experience as equal parts pop rock concert and hand drawn cartoon movie.
The show will include the brand new hand-drawn animated music video and Top-10 hit "Cakenstein". Gustafer's Cakenstein is a confectionary creation with a very surprising personality who turns the Yellowgold home into a cakey battleground!
This live performance will also feature songs and videos from the 2012 release, Gustafer Yellowgold's Year In The Day, along with plenty of fan favorites from the four previous award-winning Gustafer Yellowgold DVDs, all filled with the one-of-a-kind Gustafer Yellowgold blend of blissful pop music, lyrical poignancy, and cartoon absurdity.
Since his creation in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, headlining family friendly venues all across the U.S., in London, and even in Seoul, Korea. Yet, Gustafer is not just for kids! Gustafer Yellowgold's Show has performed as the support act for WILCO and The Polyphonic Spree, andGustaferhas been seen off-Broadway in his own productions of Gustafer Yellowgold's Mellow Sensation andGustafer Yellowgold's Infinity Sock.

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."
